New cold chain facilities to meet the surge in demand for highly-sensitive and temperature-controlled shipments
Saudia Cargo has recently inaugurated state-of-the-art cold storage facilities for pharmaceuticals and medicines at King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA).
The refrigerated warehouse was opened in conjunction with launching FlyPharma, an innovative product designed specifically to meet the growing demand for the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector.
“The new facility boasts a 1010 sq mtr pharmaceutical handling space with double operational capacity and conforms to the international standards of World Health Organization, the European Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use as well as the local standards of the Saudi Food and Drug Authority,” said Omar Hariri, CEO, Saudia Cargo.
The center ships and stores pharmaceuticals using the most advanced technologies along with sophisticated active temperature control containers, which require advanced passive solution technology, especially for products needing transportation between +2 to + 8 degrees centigrade or +15 to + 25 degrees centigrade.
Saudia Cargo aims to open more similar facilities Kingdom-wide in line with its vision and is currently planning to launch an 800 sq mt specialist pharmaceutical handling facility in Riyadh offering FlyPharma services.
