T&T label

The air cargo industry relies on the IATA Perishable Cargo Regulations (PCR) as the essential reference guide for all parties involved in the packaging and handling of perishables for air transportation. Chapter 17 “Air Transport Logistics for Time and Temperature Sensitive Healthcare Products” in the PCR specifically addresses the temperature control management issues identified by the industry. IATA’s aim is to ensure the integrity of the time and temperature sensitive healthcare cargo shipments and that the air cargo supply chain is prepared to handle the increasing demands for these healthcare shipments.
