Zurich cool chain expansion
30 / 04 / 2015
Swiss WorldCargo’s ground handling partner, Cargologic, has expanded its cold storage facilities at Zurich Airport to provide more capacity for the storage of temperature-sensitive shipments.
After receiving its Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification from Swissmedic, Cargologic opened an expanded temperature-controlled storage facility at the airport earlier this month (April).
The new facility will cater for the increasing volumes of pharmaceutical and biotech shipments via Zurich Airport – and transfer shipments in particular – by offering 120 additional euro pallet spaces for cargo that needs to be stored at between +2°C and +8°C.
“Our new cold storage area meets the demand for space and guaranteed temperature control – an important priority among our customers,” explained Cargologic’s managing director Marco Gredig. “So we’re very pleased to be able to make this storage area available to our customers with immediate effect.”
Susanne Wellauer, vertical industry manager at Swiss WorldCargo, said: "The expansion of these cold storage facilities further confirms our joint commitment to making Zurich Airport a first-class hub for handling pharmaceutical shipments.”
