DHL Global Forwarding is opening four new temperature-controlled storage chambers in San Juan this year after investing nearly $1m in the market in 2016.

According to the DHL, the company expanded its 6,792-sq ft DHL warehouse in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to six times its original size.

Three of the new independently operated cold chambers have a combined capacity of 480 pallets. Each operates at 15 to 25° C and have 100% redundant refrigeration systems.

Additionally, the chambers feature a hot gas injection system to maintain required relative humidity levels.

A forth chamber operates at 2 to 8°C, with a combined capacity of 90 pallets.

The renovated cold chambers are part of the TSA’s Certified Cargo Screening Facilities (CCSF) program – enabling on-site cargo screening and compliance auditing.

The facility will be awarded the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) in Pharmaceutical Logistics certification in the second quarter of 2017.
