Cargolux to lease PharmaPort 360s from Sonoco


Cargolux Airlines International has signed a partnership agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe for the leasing of the PharmaPort 360 temperature controlled bulk shipping container.

The PharmaPort 360 are smart active containers, distinguished as the only active temperature-controlled containers in the industry that include a fully integrated FAA-approved telemetry system. They offer real-time, cloud-based data on payload and ambient temperature and key mechanical components, synchronised with GPS location.

Franco Nanna, director global services at Cargolux says: “These containers go one step further in the secure and smooth transportation of sensitive commodities. Their cutting-edge features will strongly contribute to enhancing our service offering and confirm our position as leading airline for the transport of pharmaceuticals.”

Christopher Day, director of global business development for Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Leasing Service division adds: “We are delighted to partner with Cargolux, the world’s first GDP certified airline, to provide one-way rentals of the best-in-class PharmaPort 360 temperature control containers. Given Cargolux’s unique global reach, this partnership further enables the pharmaceutical supply chain to cost-effectively ship PharmaPort 360s across the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions.”
