Swissport pharma Centers

In our Swissport pharmaceutical centers, we bring together temperature-controlled facilities with standardized pharmaceutical processes and specialized staff.

Our state-of-the-art cargo warehouses at pharma hubs like Basel, Brussels and Frankfurt offer advanced end-to-end cooling solutions for perishables, life saving organs and pharmaceuticals. As part of a worldwide partner network of IATA CEIV Pharma certified airlines, airports, shippers and forwarders, Swissport plays a key role in the supply chain of temperature-sensitive air freight. Currently, 14 of our warehouses have been certified for pharmaceutical logistics by IATA’s CEIV Pharma, by the British MHRA or other recognized validators.

END-TO-END COOLING

  • Temperature controlled warehousing ensures sensitive cargo remains within the required temperature range at all times.
  • At selected locations pharmaceuticals enter or leave our warehouses via specially cooled truck docks and are moved to an from the aircraft via certified pharma speed gates.
  • Special refrigerated containers ensure temperature-controlled transport on the apron and during the loading process.

DIGITIZATION & INNOVATION

  • Swissport's pharmaceutical competencies are standardized and published on the Validaide platform to enable our customers to perform lane risk assessment and supplier qualification.
  • Real time and accurate data about pharma shipments, flights, storage capacity and individual ULDs are available to customers in our cargo portal.
  • Digital tools simplify and improve inspections of pharma shipments and infrastructure.
