We are proud to have PACTL among our strategic partners, sharing the same values and business prospects towards the development of the pharmaceutical sector.”
PACTL Vice President, Christian Haug said, “Now it’s the right time to collaborate with AirBridgeCargo.

The facility is about 3500㎡ and with the capacity to handle 100,000 tons annually. Meanwhile, PACTL provides integrated, qualified, and reliable cool center solutions, and advocate eco-friendly concepts to improve the customer values.
