Last Firday December 11th we were present at Brussels Airport’s presentation of the Airside Pharma Dolly at building 706 at Brucargo. This dolly is the next development in Brussels Airport’s goal of becoming the preferred hub for pharmaceutical shipments.

This Airside Pharma Dolly is a so-called passive dolly but nevertheless the possibility to make it an active one is present. The dolly is larger than a typical dolly and even the turning mechanism is in front of the dolly instead of below. All this is done to leave as much space as possible inside the dolly for pharmaceutical shipments. This dolly is the first prototype and will now be tested both at Brussels Airport as well as in Dubai. After this 3 others will soon follow according to VIL (Flemisch Logistics Institute).

We are very please with this investment seen the fact that we have started the CEIV certification program about a month ago to support the transportation of “cold chain pharmaceuticals” to and from Brucargo (as seen in  one of our previous posts).
