Agility opens pharma facility at Hyderabad

Kuwaiti freight forwarder Agility has opened a specialist facility for pharmaceutical products at Hyderabad International Airport in India.

The facility has a footprint of 6,000 square metres and it will serve the array of pharma manufacturers that are spread across the area in Hyderabad, Goa, Pune, Vizag and Bengaluru.

Agility says the first temperature-controlled life sciences storage and handling facility has been strategically positioned to serve these companies.

The centre will operate as the primary warehouse for services from va-Q-tec, an advanced passive packaging company specialising in high-end, secured cold chain products.

Agility South Asia chief executive officer, Detley Janik says: “Life sciences is one of the cornerstones of the Indian economy with exports expected to grow an astonishing 60 per cent in 2017.

“The new centre will help fast-growing Indian life sciences companies to meet the rising global demand for their products.”
