Cathay Pacific Services Ltd (CPSL) earlier this month opened its newest facility at the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal, a fully temperature-controlled area of over 1,250 square metres dedicated to the handling of pharmaceutical products.
The purpose-built Pharma Handling Centre was designed and built with unique pharma-handling requirements in mind, taking advantage of the latest technologies and designs to offer peace of mind temperature-sensitive cargo solutions for customers. Features include:
The new Pharma Handling Centre is directly connected to the Container Handling System (CHS) to ensure prompt acceptance, storage and delivery and has been built to IATA CEIV Pharma standards. The new facility is capable of processing 235,000 tonnes of pharmaceuticals per year, doubling the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal’s existing cold storage area and capacity. It is the largest dedicated pharma handling centre of any Hong Kong-based air cargo terminal.
The Pharma Handling Centre is one part of CPSL’s “Total Cold Chain Solution” ensuring valuable cold chain shipments remain at the optimal temperature from the moment they arrive at the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal to the moment they depart, transferring them as safely, efficiently and quickly as possible. CPSL also has a 1,250 square-metre multi-temperature-zone cold room, a perishable-handling centre for immediate perishable handling, thermal dollies for transfers between aircraft and terminal as well as our internet of things (IoT) enabled MobiFresh solution.
Mark Watts, CPSL Chief Operating Officer said: “Our investment in the new Pharma Handling Centre demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement, ensuring that we can provide fast and dependable handling for the growing pharma market for many years to come.”
Tom Owen, CPSL Chairman said, “This supports CPSL’s vision to become the world’s most customer-centric air cargo terminal operator and further strengthens the status of Hong Kong as a leading international aviation hub for temperature-controlled shipments.”
