June 18, 2019: AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has partnered with airfreight container provider SkyCell to lease the latter's temperature-controlled containers.
The SkyCell line of passive containers is capable of keeping the internal temperature within the range of +2° to +8°C and +15°C to +25°C under external temperature excursions from –35°C to +65°C to meet the requirements of various pharmaceutical manufacturers, as well as logistics companies involved in a complex transportation process.
“With SkyCell containers we have increased the total number of cold-chain special packaging solutions partners aiming at embracing all leading manufacturers to cater to the needs of different customers. SkyCell data-collection enablement supports our intention to move further with ‘Internet of Things’ penetration into the industry and step aside from peer-to-peer data sharing to information transparency and availability. On top of this, it fosters an extra piece of mind for our customers to have real-time data in one click,” said Fedor Novikov, deputy general director, products, AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
For every shipment, SkyCell experts use the SkyCell Transport Planner for risk assessment and define lane SOPs together with the shipper, freight forwarder and airlines, producing a comprehensive lane risk analysis.
“ABC has one of the most modern airline fleets and, like SkyCell, is committed to greater transparency in the industry. Together we strive to make pharmaceutical logistics safer, more reliable and more sustainable,” said Richard Ettl, CEO of SkyCell.
