Agility has opened on Friday its first temperature-controlled life sciences storage and handling facility in collaboration with in partnership with va-Q-tec in Hyderabad.

The 6,000 square feet facility at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport will cater to pharma manufacturers in the city along with Goa, Pune, Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru.

The centre will provide conditioning, preparation and storage of pharmaceutical goods and operate as a control tower for Agility Life Sciences' customers in India.

“This new centre will help the fast-growing Indian life sciences companies to meet the rising global demand for their products. Life sciences is one of the cornerstones of the Indian economy with exports expected to grow an astonishing 60% in 2017,” said Detlev Janik, chief executive of Agility South Asia.

India was ranked second in the 2017 Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index after China as the emerging market with the most potential and the top investment destination. The survey rated 50 countries based on market size and attractiveness, business conditions, and logistics and transport infrastructure and connections.

The centre will operate as the primary warehouse for solutions from va-Q-tec, an advanced passive packaging company specializing in high-end, secured cold chain products. va-Q-tec’s containers and boxes can maintain the required temperature for five days or longer without any external energy supply.

“Our partnership with Agility is a further example of how va-Q- tec develops and provides transportation systems with accompanying services for life sciences logistics. The cooperation will further strengthen va-Q- tec’s footprint in India, one of the fastest growing pharma exporters,” said va-Q- tec CEO Dr Joachim Kuhn.

Agility is a player in the freight forwarders and logistics market in India, where it operates from 61 locations and controls 1,50,000 square meters of warehouse space covering all major ports, airports and inland locations in the country. In the pharmaceutical sector, Agility helps companies move, store, distribute and manage goods and helps Indian companies looking to explore opportunities outside of the country.
