GHAC Terminal is a Good Storage and Distribution Practices (GSDP) certified terminal and maintains unbroken cool-chain for transportation of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical ingredients and vaccines. With the introduction of cool dolly, the mobile refrigeration unit for airside transportation, the temperature integrity can be maintained at the airside apron while the export goods wait for the aircraft. This will prevent any temperature excursions and thus maintain the efficacy of the goods. The addition of this industry-unique offering will greatly benefit the exports from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and adjoining regions. The cool dolly has been developed in-house by GMR Hyderabad Air Cargo with the help of inputs from Pharmaceutical Exporters and Air Carriers for transportation of Temperature Sensitive Goods in-line with the World Health Organisation (WHO) Guidelines.
