Overcoming the lasting effects of the 2020-2022 crisis 


The airline industry worldwide came to a standstill during the SARS-Cov2 / Covid-19 pandemic. As the recovery continues, it presents tremendous challenges as well as significant opportunities. The winners will be the operators which are able to shift quicker than others. 

The opportunities include

This crisis has created the full breadth of opportunities. Read more about our services to face these strategic challenges here 

Airlines, in particular, were bailed out to unprecedented levels. The lasting effects of which will likely be felt for 20-30 years, if not longer. Few airlines used the time to reorganise their businesses and to prepare for a whole new reality. Far too many planned for and still, in late 2022, benchmark performance against 2019. Research studies show travel has changed fundamentally. 

As government bailouts disappear, airlines struggle to ramp up.

  • They did not switch to becoming nimble,

  • Did not change to a start-up mentality,

  • Did not plan for reduced demand,

  • Did not plan for permanent loss of premium demand,

  • Did not plan for the surge in leisure demand,

  • Did not plan for the shift in leisure demand to different travel behaviour. 

  • Did not plan for a global rethinking about supply chains, which affects cargo, but also business travel.

Restructuring is desperately needed. Not just to cut cost, but position for growth and to capitalize on consolidation opportunities.

Optimizing the Cold-Chain for Pharma

Various studies by the World Health Organization, UNICEF and various other Institutions have found that up to 60% of vaccines are either spoiled or wasted before reaching the point of service. 25-40% of this waste occurs during transportation with vaccines transported internationally and over long distances resulting in higher average wastage. (Sources: contact Aviado Partners)

After two decades of knowing the problem, there has been no significant innovation. 


The Pharma Cold Chain is wasteful: disruption is a moral imperative

For many years even the likes of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been pushing for a call to action. But, the cold chain has not improved. This is because global logistics chains are optimized for the vast variety of goods that need to be transported and are optimized largely to an archaic infrastructure of hub airlines and transportation companies. That infrastructure has been designed for overall efficiency but its performance is insufficient for the transportation of temperature controlled pharmaceutical products. 


Our team of experts have extensive experience across airlines, airports, logistics and the cold chain and we understand the challenges. We have identified numerous means to disrupt the current logistics approach for pharma transport using readily available technologies and solutions. We invite Governments, Pharmaceutical companies, Health Administrators, Airlines and Logistics companies to contact us so we can share our knowledge and help you to deliver more vaccines, faster, with less wastage - ultimately saving lives at a lower cost.
