Dominic Kennedy, Managing Director of Virgin Atlantic Cargo, said: “Our pharma tonnage grew by 20% in the first half of 2017 and we expect this to increase as we continue to invest in, and develop, facilities like our new Pharma Zone as well as GDP processes and training across our network. In terms of our Pharma and Life Sciences offering, we believe our size, alongside direct Virgin oversight at every single station, gives us a real advantage in terms of the agility and flexibility we can offer and our growing volumes indicate our customers share this view. I also wish to acknowledge the strong commitment of dnata, our handling partner at Heathrow, for enabling us to deliver yet another significant benefit for our customers, who remain at the heart of everything we do.”
