SAO PAULO, Brazil: March 14, 2019. Panalpina Brazil has expanded its cold chain facilities in the country to enhance end-to-end logistics solutions with a dedicated warehouse in Cajamar, São Paulo capable of storing medicines, cosmetics as well as food and perishables.

The facility, with over 4,000 m square metres of total area, has three cold chambers: the first is set to -20°C; the second to temperatures ranging from 2°C to 8°C; and the third, and largest, covers temperatures from 15°C to 25°C.

Panalpina Brazil CajamarThe warehouse has 10 docks for loading and unloading products (pictured), approximately 1,500 pallet positions and an area for services, such as packaging, labelling, kitting and repacking.

“All systems, for example, have a back-up in place. Therefore, if any system fails, the spare one is automatically activated, ensuring the operations continue,” noted Panalpina Brazil Logistics director Marcelo Tonet.

The company has also enabled its customers to monitor, in real time, the cargo temperature and humidity using sensors and RFID technology installed at strategic locations, such as at the airports of Guarulhos and Viracopos in Campinas, at the logistics operator partner terminal in Santos, and at the Panalpina warehouse in Cajamar. The company’s operations in Guarulhos and Viracopos are already Good Distribution Practice certified and Cajamar will follow this year.

“Our transport and distribution network was fully revamped and today it has a much broader scope with nationwide coverage and international connections,” Tonet continued. For deliveries in Brazil, we also use domestic airfreight [and] both our air and road subcontractors are able to handle any type of temperature-controlled cargo in a fully compliant manner.”
