Cold storage facilities expanded at Zurich Airport

29/04/2015

Zurich Airport, 29 April 2015: Swiss WorldCargo’s ground handling partner Cargologic has expanded its cold storage facilities at Zurich Airport to provide more capacity for the storage of temperature-sensitive shipments.

Temperature-sensitive shipments can now be assured of accelerated handling, greater capacity and enhanced service quality at Zurich Airport. After receiving its Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification from Swissmedic last year, Swiss WorldCargo’s ground handling partner Cargologic opened an expanded temperature-controlled storage facility at the airport earlier this month.

The new facility will cater for the increasing volumes of pharmaceutical and biotech shipments via Zurich Airport – and transfer shipments in particular – by offering 120 additional euro pallet spaces for cargo that needs to be stored at between +2°C and +8°C.

“Our new cold storage area meets the demand for space and guaranteed temperature control – an important priority among our customers,” explains Cargologic’s Managing Director Marco Gredig. “So we’re very pleased to be able to make this storage area available to our customers with immediate effect.”

“Swiss WorldCargo’s highly-reputed air logistics solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries are also the result of a close collaboration with reliable partners, particularly our long-standing hub operator Cargologic in Zurich,” adds Susanne Wellauer, Vertical Industry Manager at Swiss WorldCargo. “And the expansion of these cold storage facilities further confirms our joint commitment to making Zurich Airport a first-class hub for handling pharmaceutical shipments.”
