MADRID: February 26, 2019. IAG Cargo has opened a new pharmaceutical centre in Madrid dedicated to its Constant Climate product for transporting time and temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products.

Work on the new facility began in June 2018 and is the latest addition to IAG Cargo’s Madrid hub, which handles over 250,000 tonnes of cargo per year.

In 2018 the organisation reported commercial revenue of €1.17 billion, an increase of 7.2 percent on 2017 at constant currency. Commenting on the result that also produced an 8.1 percent rise in yield, CEO Lynne Embleton said: “2018 saw our business delivering record revenues in a market that became more challenging as the year went on. Growth in our Constant Climate and Critical products contributed to a notable year for the business and helped differentiate IAG Cargo’s customer offering."

Constant Climate MADWith two dedicated temperature-controlled chambers totaling over 900 square metres, the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certified facility in Madrtid will allow IAG Cargo to increase the volumes of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products passing through its hub, primarily serving the growing Latin American pharmaceuticals market, projected to increase by 9.0 percent per year until 2028.

Constant Climate is IAG Cargo’s state-of-the-art cold chain product, specially designed for precision management of time and temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products.

Camilo Garcia, director of Sales, Marketing and Products at IAG Cargo added: “The opening of this new Constant Climate centre reflects our continued investment in our infrastructure and operations. Constant Climate was the first pharma-only product to the market and last year we shipped over 25,000 tonnes of life-saving medicines and vaccines.

“Good Distribution Practice (GDP) is a critical focus for our Constant Climate product as it ensures delivery of medicine to the end-patient in a pure, potent and stable condition. All of our staff involved in the handling of Constant Climate shipments are GDP trained and the certification of the Madrid facility means that all three of our Constant Climate hubs - London, Dublin and Madrid - are GDP certified."

IAG Cargo is the single business created following the merger of British Airways World Cargo and Iberia Cargo in April 2011. Following the integration of additional airlines into the business, including Aer Lingus, Vueling and bmi, it now covers a global network of over 350 destinations.
