Swissport International is adding Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport to its network of CEIV Pharma certified cargo warehouses. It becomes the first air cargo handler in Canada to receive the certification for particularly sensitive pharmaceutical logistics. The CEIV Pharma standards guarantee air freight customers highest quality and temperature control standards for the transport of sensitive pharmaceutical products.
With annual growth rates of nearly ten percent and a total turnover of some 27,000 tonnes in 2017, Montreal is a key cargo location for Swissport in Canada. The facility features temperature-controlled storage areas for pharmaceuticals with a range of +15 to +25 and +2 to +8 degrees Celsius. Additionally, there is a special cooling unit for goods which require a constant temperature of -20 degrees Celsius.
