Swissport refines cool chain solution in Kenya
Airport ground service provider and air cargo handler Swissport is continuing to upgrade its air cargo facilities globally. The latest example: the expansion and upgrade of a cargo centre at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). The facility now features a new 750 sqm interconnected cold storeroom with direct access from the perishable’s hub to the airside.
The new cold storeroom can hold up to 110 aircraft pallets, which is equivalent to a load that fits on just over three B747 freighters. It is equipped with a flatbed with a ball-mat roller for easy manoeuvring of shipments in the warehouse.
Four of the six cold storerooms are dedicated to perishable cargo (+2 to +8°C), while the remaining two are assigned to pharmaceuticals (CRT +15 to +20°C and COL +2 to +8°C). (cj)
