Sonoco ThermoSafe and Unilode sign agreement

SAS Uniloade extend partnership

Sonoco ThermoSafe and Unilode Aviation Solutions, the market leader in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management and repair services, have announced their partnership for the maintenance, repair and handling of Sonoco ThermoSafe’s passive bulk temperature-controlled containers at several key locations.

This cooperation will play an important part in enabling the safe and efficient transport of pharmaceuticals and other temperature-sensitive products around the world.

Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Pegasus ULD is the world’s first FAA and EASA-approved passive bulk temperature-controlled container for pharmaceutical use, which enables it to speed through international ground handling and customs processes at the lowest possible cost.

Engineered with composite materials, the Pegasus ULD offers a lighter solution that is substantially more damage-resistant than traditional metal containers. Additionally, the Pegasus ULD contains a fully integrated, FAA-approved telemetry system, providing real-time, cloud-based data on payload and ambient temperature and key environmental factors, precisely synchronised with GPS location.
