Located 13km south-east of Sharjah, Sharjah International Airport (SIA) has earned a solid reputation as a regional cargo hub. It is a mere 20 minutes drive from central Dubai. SIA has five cargo terminals with a total floor area of 32,000 square metres for cargo holding, import, freight forwarders, customs and overflow imports, and export. The airport’s ideal location, and proximity to the main highways connecting the country’s seven emirates, has made it a convenient hub for business.
Sharjah International Airport is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for all types of cargo both for inbound, transit and for export as per customers’ requirements. Sharjah Aviation Services (SAS) is the first cargo handling agent in the Middle East and Africa to attain IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification for its processes, facilities and services in Sharjah.
In early 2016, SIA became the first airport in the GCC and Africa to offer (via sole ground handling agent, Sharjah Aviation Services) IATA CEIV Pharma-certified cargo handling services. The temperature controlled unit is operated by a highly trained team and caters to service businesses that transport delicate, medical-related items that require advanced temperature-controlled technology for storage, as well as special care in handling and shipping.
