GMR air cargo gets ready to receive vaccine consignments | Hyderabad News

HYDERABAD:Located at the epicenter of the vaccine production region of the country, the GMR Hyderabad Air Cargo (GHAC) is set to play a pivotal role in the storage and transport of Covid-19 vaccine consignments and distribution of vaccines through state-of-the-art time and temperature-sensitive distribution system.
It is a key stakeholder in the global vaccine logistics with facilities such as modern temperature, sensitive pharma and vaccine storage and processing zones.
While the central and state governments are readying infrastructure for distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine as and when it is approved for public use, the GMR Hyderabad Air Cargo too is readying to cater to increased cargo movement. “The terminal is equipped with various temperature zones from -20 to +25 degree Celsius and with state-of the-art equipment and cool containers to cater to product-specific requirements. It is equipped with GDP-certified temperature-controlled facility for handling temperature-sensitive cargo that is required for efficient transport and distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine,” said GHAC spokesperson.
Further, the freighter parking stands are 50m away from the terminal, thereby minimising the ramp exposure timing and ensuring quick turnaround of the aircrafts. “We recently launched latest cool dollies, which is a mobile refrigeration unit for airside transportation designed to eliminate any temperature excursions and to maintain the unbroken cool chain,” said the spokesperson.
The GHAC is also upgrading its infrastructure to double the capacity on both landside and airside to handle the upcoming surge in volumes.
