Saudi Cargo launches new cool product
03 / 03 / 2015
USING the latest design in sophisticated active heating and cooling cargo containers, Saudi Cargo has launched a new pharma distribution product.
Pharma.2.World Active maintains the correct internal temperatures required for the transport of essential pharmaceuticals and life science products, whatever the external temperature may be.
Nabil Khojah, chief executive, says the new product will provide a reliable, high quality service to the pharmaceuticals and life-science industries – “for which temperature management is crucial.”
Saudia Cargo customers will have access to cargo containers specifically designed for pharmaceuticals and life-science products thanks to an agreement with Envirotainer and CSafe, under which they can lease a choice of active containers from selected origin points on the Saudia Cargo network.
At the same time, a major upgrade to the airline’s Riyadh facilities and selected origin points will ensure that the correct product temperature is maintained throughout the journey.
Additional benefits of Pharma.2.World Active include: ready-to-lease containers offering temperature control ranging from -20˚C to +25˚C; a dedicated product manager with specially trained staff and specific handling procedures; temperature, battery and re-icing checks as necessary during acceptance, transit and delivery; and priority access to capacity on selected flights and pre-alerts to facilitate customs clearance and delivery.
Pharma.2.World Active shipments will initially be available to and from Riyadh. Subsequent phases will see the rollout of the product to additional stations within the Saudia Cargo network.
