October 26, 2017: Luxembourg-based airline Cargolux and Swiss-based SkyCell have teamed up in a global container rental partnership to offer Cargolux’s pharma customers an enhanced service with SkyCell’s temperature controlled containers.

With its new containers, Cargolux can safely transport pharma products in the +2°C to +8°C and +15°C to +25°C range in outside temperatures between -35°C and +65°C, even over multiple days. The containers are a boost to Cargolux’s cool chain transport services that also offers personal attention, detailed tracking and temperature monitoring for its customers.

“The hybrid function of the SkyCell containers compensate for issues we encounter at destinations where the facilities cannot accommodate pharma shipments that require stringent temperature segregations,” says Stavros Evangelakakis, Cargolux manager Global product.

“The SkyCell containers’ lower weight and higher net volume also ensure that we effectively reduce our CO2 emissions while its 100% recyclable components contribute to our lean philosophy and underline our sense of responsibility for the environment, all while heightening our service quality.”

Cargolux is the world’s first GDP-certified airline, as well as the world’s first ‘Lean & Green’ carrier and operates from one of Europe’s most modern pharma and healthcare shipment centers, operated by its partner LuxairCargo at Luxembourg’s Findel Airport.
