AirBridgeCargo Airlines has signed a leasing agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe to use PharmaPort 360 temperature-controlled containers.
The announcement was made during LogiPharma Europe in Montreux, Switzerland, and will bolster ABC’s delivery options for temperature-sensitive shipments and guarantee a broader choice of containers available for various pharma consignments.
The PharmaPort 360 maintains required temperature in various ambient temperatures from 60C to -40C and can be easily loaded onto standard NAS Series air cargo pallets.
Its built-in GPS tracking and monitoring systems allow for transparent and accurate information to be available in real-time.
Powered by ABC’s Control Tower 24/7, it will eliminate the possibility for any deviations from the set point and give customers extra reassurance of safety and integrity of their shipments.
Fedor Novikov, deputy director of products at AirBridgeCargo says: “With PharmaPort 360 being available for lease, we can guarantee another much-needed air freight solution for pharmaceutical goods with precise temperature mode conditions and requirements to maintain an internal environment of 5°C.”
Christopher Day, director of business development and innovation at Sonoco ThermoSafe adds: “We are very pleased to have this important agreement with AirBridgeCargo Airlines. Their focus on specialized temperature-controlled cargo fits perfectly with the specialized thermal and data technology in the PharmaPort 360.”
