An appropriate infrastructure is essential for the handling and transportation of perishables and pharmaceuticals. Frankfurt Airport is one of the world’s leading hubs for temperature-sensitive products offering top-quality facilities that meet industry requirements and all relevant standards.
Perishable Center Frankfurt
The Perishable Center Frankfurt is Europe’s largest and most modern airfreight center for perishable goods and handles about 100,000 tonnes of perishables each year. Meat, fish, crustaceans, fruits, vegetables, flowers, plants, pharmaceutical, and many more products are taken care of and, if required, can be handled within 60 minutes.
Some other important facts:
- 9,000 sqm of temperature-controlled storage space
- 20 separated and fully monitored zones ranging from -24°C to +24°C
- CEIV Pharma Certification
As Europe’s leading pharma hub, FRA offers more than 7,000 sqm of first line temperature-controlled and GDP-certified areas for the handling of pharmaceuticals. Additional capacity results from specially designated pharmaceuticals areas of many freight forwarders and other cargo handlers. And even on the apron, temperature-controlled transport is guaranteed using special vehicles.
