With the well-established
time and temperature sensitive
handling system, real-time temperature updates, trained and
experienced work force and
stringent security arrangements, CSMIA is committed to
supporting the pharma and air
cargo community for the efficient and seamless transportation of the COVID-19 vaccine
across all borders.

CSMIA will also work towards
providing round the clock green
channel facility with dedicated
truck docks, X-ray machine and
ULD Buildup workstation as well

Additionally, the airports’
‘Cooltainer’ will play an important role as it can offer 2 to 80C
temperature-controlled transport between the Export Pharma Terminal and the aircraft.
A significant portion of the
COVID-19 vaccine is expected to
be transported by air owning to
its speed and reliability. The imported vaccines might require a
temperature range generally between 0 to -20C, while some of
them may need a range of -70C.
Also, the exports need to be
transported at the conventional 2
to 8C temperature range. Additionally, the vaccine imports received on active containers need
to be maintained under controlled
temperatures till the point of delivery to the consignee.
The airport is working diligently on introducing fast track
procedures for COVID-19 vaccine movement with regulatory
support and airside management. Imported vaccine consignments will be directly delivered to the consignees from the
airside for optimal temperature
management and dwell time reduction with prior special approvals from regulators.
CSMIA plans to
deploy a dedicated
COVID-task force to facilitate advance planning
and collaboration between
the airport and all stakeholders in this process such
as the Airlines, Ground Handlers, Supply Chain partners,
Regulatory and Government
bodies, Vaccine manufacturers
& distributors amongst others.
The taskforce team will be
offered trainings and workshops
for advanced preparedness in
Vaccine handling. The team will
be trained to handle all types of
active containers such as Envirotainer, C-Safe, va-Q-tec and
Softbox received in imports and
exports. Further, they will extend all efforts to optimize temperature management and reduce the dwell time for Vaccine
movements through co-ordination with all the stakeholders.
Round the clock Customer
Service Cell will be dedicated
for COVID-19 vaccine EXIM consignments in order to address
customer queries, pre-alerts
and status updates.
The airport has state-of-theart facilities, such as Asia’s largest temperature-controlled ‘Export Pharma Excellence Centre’
run by our business partner
‘Cargo Service Center’. The facility spread over an area of 4,000
sq mt has an annual handling
capacity of 350,000 tonnes, a
total of 140 ULD storage positions and 50 power outlets for
charging Active containers.
Additionally, the facility also
hosts 06 dedicated truck docks
for round the clock cargo acceptance & quick turnaround of
trucks, 02 release gates for ULD
exit, 02 X-Ray machines, 06 Cold
chambers offering 2 to 80C
storage for 12 main deck ULDs,
CCTV Surveillance and electronically-monitored temperature management system with
alarm alerts and power backup.
