Lufthansa opts for va-Q-tec passive temp-control containers

Lufthansa Cargo has partnered with va-Q-tec to offer the  temperature-controlled specialist’s va-Q-tainer thermal containers at stations across the German flag-carrier’s global network.
The va-Q-tainer is a temperature-controlled container solution for six temperature ranges from -70°C to +25°C. Negating the need for external energy sources, it is available in five sizes, and can accommodate two US pallets inside of it.
Lufthansa Cargo customers shipping pharmaceutical goods are expected to particularly benefit from the availability of the passive temperature-control containers.
Being able to offer the va-Q-tainer directly to its customers represents an “excellent choice in the passive refrigeration segment”, according to Alexis von Hoensbroech, head of product and sales of Lufthansa Cargo.
Joachim Kuhn, chief executive of Würzburg, Germany-headquartered va-Q-tec, said: "Our thermal containers provide five days temperature stability under even the most challenging conditions.
“These high-performance containers will now be directly available through Lufthansa Cargo. This will have a very positive effect on Germany as the fourth-largest pharmaceutical market in the world.”
Kuhn described Lufthansa Cargo as a strong partner “not only in Germany but also in Asia, India, the USA and South America”.
At Lufthansa Cargo’s home hub of Frankfurt, customers benefit from a ‘Cool Center’ with the latest infrastructure, cooling rooms maintained at different temperatures, a deep-freeze compartment and direct access to the apron for the fastest possible loading. va-Q-tainers are now also available there.
Plus, Lufthansa Cargo offers its ‘Road Feeder Service Cool’ option and has a special sun-reflective film available for all temperature-sensitive shipments.
