The center supports its Constant Climate precision temperature-controlled product, which is designed for the transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical material.
The center handles and stores all passive and active Constant Climate goods in two temperature-controlled zones, one maintained at 2-8 degrees Celsius, and one at 15-25 degrees Celsius.
IAG said the facility can accommodate up to 28 intact pallet positions or 56 AKE loading units at any one time.
Alan Dorling, global head of pharmaceuticals & life sciences at IAG Cargo, said that when it comes to its Constant Climate goods, the company’s key focuses are to keep products pure, potent and stable.
Created in 2011 as a joint venture between British Airways and Iberia, IAG Cargo brings together the two companies’ global cargo services, employing some 2,700 people, covering 350 destinations around the world. In 2012, the company had a turnover of more than £1bn.
