SINGAPORE: June 14, 2016. Swiss WorldCargo, Cargologic and SATS have today established a secure temperature-controlled, quality corridor between Singapore and Zurich for the pharma industry.
Both Cargologic and SATS are certified as part of IATA’s Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) in pharma handling. They are also compliant under Good Distribution Practices (GDP) regulations and employ a trained team of cold-chain handling specialists.

“The investment in our relationship underscores our faith in Zurich as one of the top cargo airports for handling pharmaceutical products. We believe this gives a clear signal to the pharmaceutical industry to use Cargologic and SATS in Zurich and Singapore respectively, “ he added.

Together with our partners, we can deliver excellence and provide quality leadership, especially in the temperature-controlled transport management,” declared Ashwin Bhat, head of Swiss WorldCargo.
