Cargolux signs up for PharmaPort 360 ULDs

PharmaPort 360 temperature controlled bulk shipping container

Cargolux has been signed an agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe, a provider of temperature packaging, to lease its PharmaPort 360 temperature controlled bulk shipping container.

The airline said its PharmaPort 360 containers are smart active containers, “distinguished as the only active temperature controlled containers in the industry that include a fully integrated, FAA-approved telemetry system”.

They enable the provision of real-time, cloud-based data on payload and ambient temperature and key mechanical components, precisely synchronized with GPS location, Cargolux claimed.

Franco Nanna, Cargolux’s director global services, said: “These containers go one step further in the secure and smooth transportation of sensitive commodities. Their cutting-edge features will strongly contribute to enhancing our service offering and confirm our position as leading airline for the transport of pharmaceuticals.”

Christopher Day, director of global business development for Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Leasing Services division, added: “We are delighted to partner with Cargolux, the world’s first GDP certified airline, to provide one-way rentals of the best-in-class PharmaPort 360 temperature control containers. Given Cargolux’s unique global reach, this partnership further enables the pharmaceutical supply chain to cost-effectively ship PharmaPort 360s across the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions.”
