Our recent launch of AAT COOLPORT, the first on-airport cold chain facility with a complete temperature-controlled environment, is also built with sustainability in mind.COOLPORT features non-ozone depleting refrigerants offering a low global warming potential (GWP), double doors, air curtains, speed doors, and thermal insulation panels. All are purpose-designed and built to minimize heat loss to achieve energy savings.
