AirBridgeCargo adds new passive pharma ULD

AirBridgeCargo Airlines has expanded its Master Lease Agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe to include its new Pegasus passive container.

The new ULD offers tracking and data capturing, recording everything from temperature to tilt, and can carry pharma shipments up to 998 kg. It maintains the temperature range from 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. 

The airline said that because of a two-fold surge in healthcare shipments, which tipped over 40,000 tonnes, for the first eight months of 2020 and the industry prep for COVID-19 vaccines transportation, it has been strengthening its relations with container lease providers, expanding the number of passive and active container options for its customers across the globe.

Yulia Celetaria, global pharma director for AirBridgeCargo Airlines, said: “Sonoco ThermoSafe has been able to quickly adjust to the market demands and engineer the new Pegasus ULD, which will be highly appreciated by the Life Science and Healthcare community, especially for large volumes of pharmaceutical shipments.”
