Ground handler Swissport International has opened a new temperature-controlled facility at Dublin Airport to cater to Ireland’s position as a major pharma hub.

The new dedicated pharma facility, which was built in partnership with Celtic Cooling, measures 400 sq m, can hold up to 200 palettes and is the first of its size at Dublin Airport.

The warehouse is operated at a temperature of between 15-25 degrees Celsius but also offers a unit that can be operated from two to eight degrees Celsius.

Swissport UK and Ireland chief executive Karen Cox said: “We are delighted to open this brand-new facility which will play a vital role in the supply chain of pharmaceutical goods in Ireland.

“Our customers from the pharmaceutical industry can now also rely on our professional services for temperature-controlled freight at Dublin Airport, supporting them with high-quality handling services along the cool chain.”

Swissport said the facility “significantly adds handling capacity for major pharmaceutical suppliers in the region and supports Ireland’s position as one of the largest net exporters of medicinal and pharmaceutical products within the European Union”.
