American Airlines Cargo officially opened the ExpediteTC° cold storage pharmaceutical facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Strategically placed in the northeast pharmaceutical corridor, this high-tech facility and its specially trained employees are key elements in the effective handling of the sensitive, valuable and potentially life-saving products shipped through the international cold chain. This facility is a continuation of American’s investment in the infrastructure to support the ExpediteTC° time- and temperature-sensitive program.

AAC president Jim Butler said: “With our quickly growing network at American, we see a great importance in investing in our infrastructure and people. We will continue to evolve our products and services as needed to ensure these sensitive shipments remain just as safe and potent for the end user as designed by the manufacturer.”
