Delta Cargo has opened its first Variation Pharma 4 station in Latin America, in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

The station was previously only variation 1 – 3 certified, but can now handle commodities including vaccines, medicines and pharmaceuticals that need storing between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius.

Delta Cargo president, Gareth Joyce says: “Expanding our Pharma 4 stations to include Rio de Janeiro echoes our commitment to globalization and is a direct response to customer feedback.”

“Delta Cargo has 49 stations around the globe certified to handle one or more Variation Pharma products, 16 of which are certified for Pharma 4. Our vast network will connect Brazil to the world.”

Delta Cargo general manager – cargo commercial operations, Miriam Altmann-Berry says: “With a global reach, our Pharma desk works with all of our cargo stations to streamline a smooth operation. Specialised Pharma agents are welcoming this opportunity to support our customers’ Pharma 4 business into Rio de Janeiro. Pharma-specialised agents provide booking and support seven days a week, as well as 24/7 online tracking.”
