Emirates SkyCargo widens container offer for pharma customers

Emirates SkyCargo has entered into agreements for global container rental services with SkyCell and va-Q-tec, in addition to its existing co-operation with Envirotainer.
The agreements allow the Middle East carrier to offer a variety of specialised temperature controlled containers for pharmaceutical or life sciences products.  
Emirates SkyCargo’s customers can have such temperature sensitive products shipped using SkyCell’s temperature controlled containers, which are designed to maintain products at  +2°C to +8°C and +15°C to +25°C safely, even under extreme outside temperatures such as –35°C to +65°C for several days.
Pharma customers can now also choose to have their temperature sensitive shipments transported in va-Q-tainer containers — advanced passive containers providing temperature controlled solutions for six temperature ranges from -70°C to +25°C in extreme ambient conditions.
Va-Q-tainer rental containers are available in five different sizes taking up to two US pallets inside and offer constant and deviation-free temperature control for several days without using external energy sources.
Emirates SkyCargo’s agreements with SkyCell and va-Q-tec supplement its existing in-house pharma offerings which include the Emirates SkyPharma Cool Dolly, which transports cargo from aircraft to storage areas in Dubai, and the White Container — a special container coated with insulators to counteract high external temperatures, giving customers a wide variety of transportation options for their pharma shipments.
