Cathay Pacific adds new pharma ULD option

Cathay Pacific will begin offering customers access to Sonoco ThermoSafe’s PharmaPort 360 temperature-controlled airfreight container.
The airline announced today that it had signed a deal with Sonoco ThermoSafe which enables pharmaceutical shippers to lease PharmaPort 360 containers directly from Cathay Pacific Cargo.
The partenrs said that PharmaPort 360 utilises proprietary hybrid technology to ensure precise temperature control.
Once charged, the PharmaPort functions like an active temperature controlled container without the energy consumption, or heat discharge of other compressor-based technologies.
"The PharmaPort’s hybrid technology allows it to operate on battery power substantially longer than competing active units used for bulk air shipments, and it also eliminates the need for refrigerated trucks for lengthy truck lanes," the partners said.
"Additionally, it contains a fully integrated, Federal Aviation Administration-approved telemetry system, providing real-time, cloud-based data on payload and ambient temperature, precisely synchronised with GPS location."
