CARGO handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) is preparing to commence construction of a new 1,500-square metre pharma facility at Copenhagen airport in April to provide end-to-end handling in a temperature-controlled environment and take care of all the related acceptance, offload, pre-storage, build-up and storage activities.

The company expects the construction process to be completed in time for the new building to undergo IATA CEIV Pharma pre-assessment in July, reported Mumbai's STAT Trade Times.



Accessible through four dedicated cargo doors, the facility will accept loose shipments and pre-built units, offering a storage area large enough for 300 EUR pallets and 30 PMC pallets.



WFS is also upgrading the existing temperature control areas in its current facility in Copenhagen to handle growing volumes of pharma products requiring a 15-25 degrees Celsius temperature range. This will be the company's second investment in pharma facilities at the airport in less than two years.



Since opening the first phase of its pharma facility in Copenhagen at the end of 2017 - a temperature-controlled unit load device (ULD) storage area with the capacity to handle 16 units - WFS has seen the volume of its pharma shipments take flight by 90 per cent.



The company already has International Air Transport Association (IATA) CEIV certified locations in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Frankfurt, Madrid and Miami, and plans to invest in upgrading its pharma capabilities at other prime WFS stations over the coming year.
