Envirotainer, AirBridgeCargo, Kuehne+Nagel partner to deliver medical supplies from Italy to China
Envirotainer, a cool chain solutions provider for airfreight, AirBridgeCargo (ABC) and logistics partner Kuehne + Nagel joined hands to deliver a huge consignment of medicines from Italy to China for a global pharmaceutical company. The shipment was to be sent from their production facility in Italy to their distribution center in China.
One of the key challenges for this particular shipment of medicines was the share volume that needed to be shipped at one single time. Thanks to good dialogues between all involved parties, the 27 RKN e1 active containers were loaded in AirBridgeCargo’s freighter in less than one hour and safely on their way to China before any changes in weather could interfere with flight schedules.
“One key success factor to make this happen was the choice to use Envirotainer’s active temperature-controlled units, the RKN e1 in this case. As these units are Unit Load Devices (ULD), they fit snuggly into the airplane and utilizes space extremely efficiently,” explains Claudio Caccia, strategic account manager at Envirotainer. He continues, “If you would have tried to ship the same volume of medicines in a passive solution, it would have required something like another 2-3 Boeing 747 to fit it all because of all the insulation taking up space.”
“We are proud to be given this opportunity to demonstrate the quality of the pharma solutions we can provide together with our global partner - Envirotainer. And of course, we are also proud to have earned the trust of our customer for the organization of vaccines transportation. This is the latest demonstration of AirBridgeCargo’s and Envirotainer’s commitment to provide the best possible solution for customers requiring high quality pharma logistics,” highlighted Yulia Celetaria, global director, Pharma for AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
