American Airlines Cargo Builds Pharmaceutical Handling Facility


American Airlines Cargo has started construction on a pharmaceutical handling facility in Philadelphia, PA. 

The 25,000-sq-ft facility is designed for a range of temperature-sensitive products being shipped in and out of the Northeast pharmaceutical corridor of the United States

Included within the new building will be 6000 sq-ft for controlled room temperature (CRT) passive shipments at +15 C and +25 C. A 3000-sq-ft refrigerated area will be available for shipments that need to be maintained in a +2 C to +8 C environment. A deep frozen area will be available for shipments that need to be kept at -10 C to -20 C, with powered charging stations for up to 30 electronically controlled units.

The facility is expected to be completed in the fall and will be equipped with technology to monitor products with proactive alarming and will be validated to 0.25°C. Back up power generation is designed to ensure product protection in the event of a power failure, the company reports.

The opening of the Philadelphia pharmaceutical facility will coincide with the rollout of a ExpediteTC cold chain program across the American Airlines network.
