The centre opened last year and is expected to handle 8,000 tonnes of cargo in 2020. According to WFS, 30 airlines and freight forwarders already utilise the pharma centre, reported Air Cargo World.
The 2,400-square-metre facility includes landside and airside acceptance capability, as well as several temperature-controlled rooms. The storage options include three rooms for loose cargo storage that are kept at 15 Celsius to 25 C, 2 C to 8 C, and minus -20 C. There are also two temperature-controlled areas for cargo unit load devices (ULDs) that are kept at 2 C to 25 C.
WFS has significantly expanded its pharma handling capabilities during the past year. The handler opened a pharma facility at Copenhagen Airport, launched the first GDP-compliant facility at New York's JFK Airport in partnership with Swiss WorldCargo, and gained its CEIV Pharma certification at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in 2019.
