FedEx opens cold chain centre in Memphis
May 18, 2016: FedEx Express (FedEx), world’s largest express transportation company, has opened the FedEx cold chain centre at the FedEx Express World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee, US.
The 7,710-square-metre facility is designed to protect the integrity of temperature-sensitive healthcare and perishable shipments.
“Modern cold chain logistics capabilities are opening up new possibilities for Asia Pacific’s healthcare sector,” said Karen Reddington, president, FedEx Express Asia Pacific.
“Today, shipping even the most sensitive products such as biopharmaceuticals around the world, which would have been difficult or impossible just a few years ago, has become easier than ever.”
The FedEx cold chain centre Memphis offers cutting-edge features to keep temperatures regulated in the event of unforeseen delays, such as clearance holds or inclement weather. Some of the other facilities include: separate areas for healthcare shipments and other temperature-sensitive perishables (e.g. specialty foods, flowers and seafood); dry ice replenishment and gel pack exchange capabilities; cross dock station with direct trailer access to cold (2°c to 8°c) environment and cold lock dual door design for precise temperature control.
While this dedicated facility is the first of its kind for the FedEx network, FedEx operates smaller-scale cold chain facilities at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in France, the Cologne Bonn Airport in Germany, and the Kansai International Airport in Japan.
