GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd. (GHIAL) on Tuesday announced that its cargo terminal has been certified with the World Health Organisation's Good Storage and Distribution Practices (WHO-GSDP), awarded by SGS India, a leader in certifications in pharmaceutical sector.

The WHO-GSDP certificate underscores Hyderabad Airport's commitment to and compliance with quality management standards and international requirements throughout the pharma supply chain, GHIAL said in a statement.

The Hyderabad Airport Cargo Terminal received this certification following a six-month long rigorous evaluation process, during which a team of SGS India auditors analyzed its transportation, handling and storage processes, quality policies, facility management, equipment maintenance and security and assessed them against the guidelines outlined by the WHO's GSDP framework.

"Our rigorous quality standards, specialty logistics expertise and meticulous execution, enable us to meet the demands of the Pharma City and optimize the supply chain for our customers globally," said GHIAL CEO S.G.K. Kishore.

In 2010, Hyderabad International Airport operationalized India's first Airport-based dedicated Pharmaceutical handling facility (Pharma Zone), to handle the export of pharmaceutical products. It created a benchmark for dedicated temperature-controlled cargo handling facilities, influencing other airports in India.

With Hyderabad being the pharma hub of India, the Hyderabad Airport sees 60 per cent of cargo exports being comprised of pharma products. The pharma cargo has witnessed CAGR of 10 per cent for the last 5 years.
