Swiss WorldCargo and partners create temperature controlled air cargo corridor

Swiss WorldCargo, together with Swiss handler Cargologic and Asian gateway services provider SATS, have created a secure temperature-controlled, quality corridor between Singapore and Zurich.
The partners say they have synchronised their cargo handling facilities and procedures between the two airports.
This in turn makes for more accurate and reliable handling on the ground and in the air, along with fully paperless cargo acceptance processes to enhance visibility and transparency for shippers.
Temperature-sensitive pharma freight is the primary target for the initiative, with its need for certified temperature integrity and tracking.
Cargologic and SATS are certified under IATA’s Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) in pharmaceutical handling, comply with Good Distribution Practice (GDP) regulations and employ a trained team of cold-chain handling specialists.
Cargologic managing director Marco Gredig explained: “We believe this gives a clear signal to the pharmaceutical industry to use Cargologic and SATS in Zurich and Singapore respectively. Together with our partner SATS we will improve all processes to a very high quality level to fulfil the needs of our customer Swiss WorldCargo.”
SATS president and chief executive, Alex Hungate, pledged “to innovate new solutions to meet the changing needs of our customers while Swiss head of cargo, Ashwin Bhat, said: “Together with our partners, we can deliver excellence and provide quality leadership, especially in the temperature-controlled transport management.”
Air Cargo News will be hosting its annual Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical conference in London on November 22 and 23, click here for more information.
