AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has signed a leasing agreement with specialist packaging provider Sonoco ThermoSafe for its PharmaPort 360 temperature-controlled container.
The agreement will bolster ABC’s delivery options for temperature-sensitive shipments and guarantee a broader choice of containers available for various pharmaceutical consignments.
Fedor Novikov, ABC’s deputy director of products, said: “We have been consistently developing and upgrading our ‘abc pharma’ product, offering our customers dedicated airlift for both passive and active ways of transportation.
“With PharmaPort 360 being available for lease, we can guarantee another much-needed airfreight solution for pharmaceutical goods with precise temperature mode conditions and requirements to maintain an internal environment of 5°C.
“This is a quantum leap for our dedicated product, and we expect it to ramp up our volumes, as well as to gain interest in our services from new customers.”
The PharmaPort 360 safely maintains the required temperature in various ambient temperatures from 60°C to -40°C and can be easily loaded onto standard NAS Series air cargo pallets.
Its built-in GPS tracking and GPS monitoring systems allow for transparent and accurate information to be available in real-time mode.
Christopher Day, director of business development and innovation at Sonoco ThermoSafe, said: “We are very pleased to have this important agreement with AirBridgeCargo Airlines. Their focus on specialized temperature-controlled cargo fits perfectly with the specialized thermal and data technology in the PharmaPort 360.”
