Hactl launches new Cool Chain Complex at Hong Kong International Airport

Hactl’s Cool Chain Complex is the largest at HKIA, offering seamless handling of temperature-sensitive goods, and high security for hazardous substances.

Hactl has launched its new Cool Chain Complex (CCC), providing handling for temperature-controlled shipments.

The facility is the largest at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), and the first to include a dedicated climate-controlled facility for storing dangerous substances.

The new CCC enables import shipments to be unloaded from aircraft, broken down, and either stored or handed to waiting customers within an entirely temperature-controlled environment.

Exports enjoy a similar seamless temperature-controlled transit from warehouse to aircraft. All additional processes, such as check-weighing and X-ray screening, also take place within the CCC’s controlled environment.

Wilson Kwong, Hactl Chief Executive: “This is a real game-changer in the handling of temperature-controlled shipments at Hong Kong’s airport.

“In addition to offering a seamless, constant-climate handling capability, the Cool Chain Complex means Hactl is the first air cargo handler in Hong Kong to offer a dedicated storage area for hazardous substances, with precise temperature control.

“This will allow dangerous pharmaceuticals and biological shipments to be stored under tightly-regulated thermal conditions and security, achieving total safety and preserving product efficacy.

“Hactl continues to invest and innovate, in order to achieve ever-better service standards, open up new business opportunities for its airline customers, and underpin Hong Kong’s position as the world’s number one air cargo hub.

“The Hactl Cool Chain Complex is further evidence of our long-term commitment to Hong Kong.”
