Swissport demonstrates handling of a Covid-19 vaccine in Brussels

In preparation for the global distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, Swissport puts facilities and processes to the test. Today, our cargo team in Brussels demonstrated its ability to handle temperature sensitive air cargo in a dry-run under real-conditions and under the eyes of experts and trade reporters at our state-of-the-art Swissport Pharma Center.

Swissport around the world is busy establishing operational readiness for the handling of highly temperature-sensitive vaccines. Vaccines and indeed many pharmaceuticals require rigorous temperature control throughout the entire supply chain. While some types Covid-19 vaccines might only call for temperatures around -20°C or in a range from 2°-8°C, others will likely require extremely low temperatures in the range of -70°C.
