BRUSSELS Airport has more than doubled its fleet of airside pharma dollies due to rising demand, reports London's Air Cargo News.
Brussels Airlines Cargo said it would use the temperature controlled dollies as standard at its home hub for all pharma shipments requiring temperature control.
The Belgian hub has since added five more of the trailer-mounted transporters, bringing its total fleet to nine units.
'To meet the rising demand from shippers and airlines the additional investment was crucial,' said the airport.
'When it comes to carrying temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals products, keeping the entire logistic chain of transport at the right temperature, it is of the utmost importance,' said the airport statement.
The new units will offer extra features including variable temperature settings and automated temperature reporting, while they will also feature a cooling system powered by solar technology allowing them to operate autonomously for several days.
The airport first unveiled its pharma transport units in 2016. The units can be monitored in real time and are booked using an app.
