Aircoolbox targets air cargo pharma market

A new company has entered the air cargo container market, taking aim at the pharmaceutical sector.
At last week’s Temperature Controlled Logistics event in London, Aircoolbox announced it would begin targeting the air cargo pharmaceutical market with its passive container product.
Aircoolbox managing director Keith Packer said the re-usable container can be flat packed to one third of its size to help reduce the cost of transporting the box back to its origin.
The container was launched in the perishables market last year, but Packer said the company is now looking to expand into other sectors.
The units are constructed from eight panels made of food-safe high density polyethylene filled with polyurethane foam.
They protect products and keep them within a temperature range of 2°C to 8°C and 15 °C to 25°C without additional refrigerant for up to 120 hours.
The fact extra gel packs are thermal blankets are not needed saves space and weight within the container, he said.
