WFS opens new Copenhagen pharma facility as it wins new Air India contract

Air cargo handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) is opening a new temperature-controlled facility in Copenhagen. It is also celebrating winning the cargo handling contract for Air India’s new three times weekly Boeing 787 passenger and cargo services linking the city with Delhi.
The investment in the facility supports of WFS’ growing pharma volumes and WFS’ own IATA CEIV Pharma certification programme in Denmark, expected for completion in early 2018. The facility has the capacity to store up to 16 cargo units and offers separate temperature chambers offering both 2-8°C and 15-25°C environments. Each lane in the building is also equipped with an electronic rollerbed system to expedite the handling of pharma shipments.
“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,” says Jimi Daniel Hansen, WFS’ General Manager Scandinavia.
“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.”
Earlier this month, Brussels became the first WFS cargo station in Europe to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
