Cargolux signs deal for high-tech containers

Cargolux Airlines has signed a global rental agreement to use va-Q-tec’s advanced passive containers for its temperature-sensitive pharma shipments. The system uses phase change material and vacuum insulation panels that absorb and store thermal energy during freezing or heating to maintain the required storage temperature during transport.
One of the first beneficiaries of the new equipment will be Cargolux’s recently-launched flight from Europe to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, which mainly caters to the needs of the pharma industry.
Franco Nanna, Cargolux director global logistics services said: “With va-Q-tec, Cargolux has the most appropriate and proven shipping tool for temperature sensitive healthcare products. At the same time, it enables quick and simple rental through Cargolux’s centralized and dedicated ULD team, thus taking away a known burden from our customers. With the many stakeholders in the supply chain, va-Q-tainer is a handling-friendly piece of equipment that can pass flawlessly from one user to the next.”
Dominic Hyde, va-Q-tec managing director noted: “The partnership with Cargolux gives our customers what they have been asking for: the possibility to book flight and the va-Q-tainer Serviced Rental in one go to over 90 Cargolux destinations within a one-way rental service.”
