IAG Cargo opens Heathrow pharmaceuticals centre

IAG Cargo, the freight arm of British Airways and Iberia, has opened this new pharmaceuticals centre at Heathrow airport. It is the latest step in the expansion of its Constant Climate service for temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical materials.
With increasing numbers of shipments of this type moving to and from Africa, the new Constant Climate Centre will handle and store IAG Cargo’s Passive and Active Constant Climate products.
It includes two temperature-controlled zones, the first maintained at 2-8 degrees and the second at 15-25? – and accommodates 28 intact pallet positions or 56 AKE loading units.
Steve Gunning, managing director at IAG Cargo, states: “This underpins just how important the pharmaceuticals market is to our growth strategy. It is at the heart of one of the largest temperature-controlled cargo networks in the world, and will be a huge benefit to pharmaceuticals companies.”
