AirBridgeCargo Airlines inks leasing agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe
April 10, 2019: AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has inked leasing agreement with Sonoco ThermoSafe for the PharmaPort 360 temperature-controlled container.

Its built-in GPS tracking and GPS Monitoring systems allow for transparent and accurate information to be available in real-time mode.
This, combined with ABC%u2019s Control Tower 24/7, will eliminate the possibility for any deviations from the set point and will give customers extra reassurance of safety and integrity of their shipments.
%u201CWe have been consistently developing and upgrading our %u2018abc pharma%u2019 product, offering our customers dedicated airlift for both passive and active ways of transportation. With PharmaPort 360 being available for lease, we can guarantee another much-needed air freight solution for pharmaceutical goods with precise temperature mode conditions and requirements to maintain an internal environment of 5C. This is a quantum leap for our dedicated product, and we expect it to ramp up our volumes, as well as to gain interest in our services from new customers,%u201D highlighted Fedor Novikov, Deputy director, Products of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
Christopher Day, director of Business Development & Innovation at Sonoco ThermoSafe said: %u201CAs always, our focus is to make it as easy as possible for pharmaceutical shippers and forwarders to directly lease PharmaPort 360s from the leading airlines around the globe, and we are delighted to partner with AirBridgeCargo Airlines to do so.%u201D
