New Heathrow ‘sensitive’ cargo handling facility

The opening of IAG Cargo’s ‘New Premia’ facility and the addition of critical cargo handling capability at our local airport will offer greater efficiencies for temperature sensitive consignments.

The New Premia incorporates IAG Cargo’s state-of-the-art Constant Climate Quality Centre, which has been specially designed for the precision management of time and temperature sensitive products, with a dedicated team to ensure shipment handling meet the strictest of regulatory standards.

The Constant Climate Quality Centre (CCQC) has 29 dedicated cool cells and temperature facilities available from +25°C to -20°C ensuring sensitive shipments are held in the most stable temperature-controlled environment at all times.

The facility has been designed to handle cargo as efficiently as possible, with 11 new land-side doors to speed up cargo processing, which means sensitive cargo can be moved through dedicated airside docks, with a specialist fleet of refrigerated trucks to protect foodstuff, pharmaceutical and life-science products, from the cargo terminal to loading onto aircraft.

The semi-automated facility of over 10,000m2 will handle more than double the amount of premium shipments, with 29 dedicated temperature-controlled chambers, in a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certified facility, with a WDA licence issued by the UK Medicines & Healthcare Regulatory Agency.

We find solutions for every critical and temperature-sensitive shipment. EMAIL Colin Redman to discuss your situation and requirements.
