DHL Global Forwarding has opened 500m2 of refrigerated warehouse space at Vienna Airport designed to handle temperature-sensitive products and allow them to be prepped for air shipment.
“Our new Life Science Competence Center is of particular importance for our customers in the drug and medical device industries, since it offers solutions tailored to their specific needs,” Ronald Friedreich, managing director DHL Global Forwarding Austria, said.
The Competence Center is expected to transship roughly 20,000 pallets annually. To ensure the quality of sensitive goods, each product is marked for placement in a specific temperature range in zones of between 2-8°C and 15-25°C.
