Dokasch opens new pharma container station at Hyderabad

By Damian Brett

Temperature-controlled container firm Dokasch Temperature Solutions has opened a new service station at India’s Hyderabad Airport.

The new station is located at GMR Hyderabad Air Cargo terminal, which also hosts a dedicated export pharma terminal.

The station in Hyderabad has a capacity to equip up to 100 containers and can “easily accommodate” requests of up to 20 containers per day.

The company said that it had chosen Hyderbad as the location for the new station as the city is a major pharma production and export hub.

“Some of the largest and most important vaccine producers have facilities in Hyderabad, which gives it additional relevance during the ongoing pandemic,” Dokasch said. “Several key pharmaceutical companies are located here and export their products to the US, European Union, Japan and other major countries across the globe. The upcoming Pharma City, an extensive industrial park for pharmaceuticals, will further increase the city’s importance.”

Andreas Seitz, managing director at Dokasch Temperature Solutions, added: “India is a highly relevant location for pharmaceuticals, biosimilars and biotech and especially Hyderabad is of outstanding importance.

“In turn, we decided to open our new service station to complement our extensive network and contribute to a capable cool chain for these products. Not only is the station located at a globally relevant industry hub, but the airport is also used by many of our partner airlines and is well connected to destinations worldwide.

“We are certain that our new location will play an important role for the global supply with lifesaving pharmaceutical products like vaccines, especially during the ongoing pandemic.”
