Emirates Skycargo strengthens its pharma offerings
With +75,000 t of pharmaceuticals flown during FY 2018/19, Emirates Skycargo continues to enhance its offerings to pharma shippers and freight forwarders. Earlier this year, the carrier inaugurated a 1,000 sqm facility with an annual capacity of 15,000 t of pharma shipments at Chicago ORD (USA) as part of its "pharma corridors" initiative. The facility has now been certified as compliant to EU GDP guidelines by SGS.
In line with its focus on fit-for-purpose facilities and development of pharma corridors between main pharma origin and destination stations, Emirates Skycargo has also moved its pharma handling operations at Copenhagen (Denmark) to a dedicated GDP certified facility for pharmaceuticals developed by WFS.
At its dual hub in Dubai, the carrier operates more than 8,600 sqm of GDP certified space dedicated for the combined handling of pharmaceutical products at DXB and DWC (photo). (ah)
