Handling CARGO, The lifeline of nation during COVID pandemic
"When the going gets tough, the tough get going" this was the motto of cargo teams at GMR airports during pandemic times. Despite the strict lock-down and several logistical issues during these unprecedented times, our team rose to the occasion in line with the nation's call and continued to seamlessly handle the cargo operations. And as the world-wide trials of vaccine to fight Covid-19 are on full throttle, the cargo facilities of GMR Airports, especially in Delhi and Hyderabad are ready to provide the necessary infrastructure for unbroken cool-chain of the global vaccine shipments to maintain the vaccine integrity.
Delhi Airport has two cargo terminals with world-class infrastructure that provide GDP certified temperature-controlled facility for handling temperature-sensitive cargo. Apart from having state-of-the-art temperature-controlled zones with separate cool chambers ranging from +25°C to -20°C, both Delhi & Hyderabad airports are equipped with Cool Dolly system to provide an unbroken cold chain facility to time and temperature sensitive pharma shipments within the temperature range of +2°C to +8°C and +15°C to +25°C. This Cool Dolly acts as a temporary storage area for moving temperature sensitive cargo from air cargo terminal to the aircraft. These state of the art facilities would be extremely conducive for distribution of COVID 19 vaccines.
