CEVA Logistics has opened a temperature-controlled airfreight station adjacent to Singapore’s Changi International Airport.

Located in the Free Trade Zone of the Airport Logistics Park, it has two areas to store shipments at between 15 and 25C and between 2 and 8C.

To offer customers reliability and compliance, CEVA offers an automated control tower workflow tool called Controlant, and a risk assessment tool called Validaide.

The station’s proximity to local seaports, combined with reefer container options, also gives customers access to ocean freight.

Elaine Low, Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Pacific at CEVA Logistics says: “This air hub is now capable of supporting the regional distribution of vaccines and other pharmaceutical supplies that are critically needed in Southeast Asia at the moment.”

She adds that customers can also use value-added services such as dry ice, relabelling and cross-stocking within the free trade zone.

CEVA Logistics is committed to operating more than 40 temperature-controlled airfreight stations by the end of 2021, with stations in Atlanta, Chicago, Frankfurt, Madrid, Budapest and Mumbai scheduled to open in the coming months.
