Va-Q-tec and Aeroméxico Cargo sign container agreement


Va-Q-tec and Aeroméxico Cargo have signed a global agreement for the transport of temperature-sensitive goods.

Mexico is Latin America’s second-largest pharma market and the collaboration will see door-to-door cold chain shipping solutions to pharmaceutical and life science customers.

Va-Q-tec chief executive officer, Joachim Kuhn says: “We are delighted to commence our cooperation with Aeroméxico Cargo, bringing our combined proposition to the Mexican pharma sector. Pharma is a significant industry segment in Mexico and the country is the eleventh largest global market for pharmaceutical products.

“As a significant producer and consumer of pharmaceuticals, the increased global connectivity we will achieve through our partnership with Aeroméxico Cargo helps underpin our strategy for the Americas.”

The high-quality transport containers, called ‘va-Q-tainer’, which are now also offered directly by Aeroméxico Cargo, provide temperature-controlled solutions for six temperature ranges from -70°C to +25°C in five sizes, taking up to two US pallets inside.

The advanced passive thermal containers made by va-Q-tec offer constant temperature control for several days without using external energy sources. The technology enables deviation-free shipments of temperature-sensitive goods worldwide.
