WFS opens pharma facility, wins Air India cargo contract

Worldwide Flight Services has opened a new pharma facility in Denmark in addition to winning the cargo contract to Delhi for Air India, the cargo handling firm announced Wednesday.

   Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has opened a new temperature-controlled pharma facility in Copenhagen, in addition to inking a contract with Air India for the latter’s thrice-weekly cargo service to Delhi, the cargo handling firm said in a statement.
   The facility will store up to 16 cargo units with separate temperature chambers and an electronic rollerbed system to expedite the handling of pharma shipments, said WFS.
   WFS invested in the pharma facility as part of its IATA CEIV Pharma certification program in Denmark, the air carrier said. Earlier this month, Brussels became the first WFS cargo station in Europe to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma certification. WFS is also working towards Good Distribution Practice (GDP) or IATA CEIV Pharma certifications at other major locations across its network, which also includes building new facilities in Paris and Milan. 
   In addition to the pharma facility, WFS received the cargo handling contract for Air India for its new service, with three flights a week, aboard Boeing 787 freighters to Delhi.
   “We are delighted to be handling cargo carried onboard Air India’s new non-stop services between Denmark and India, which offers a direct trade link for exporters and importers in both countries. WFS is also progressing towards its IATA CEIV certification in Denmark with the opening of our new cooler facility to supports our customers’ premium cargo products for temperature-sensitive pharma shipments,” WFS General Manager Scandinavia Jimi Daniel Hansen said.
