SkyCell announces global collaboration with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo
April 3, 2019: Yesterday Swiss-based manufacturer of temperature-controlled containers to transport pharmaceuticals and French airline group Air France KLM Martinair Cargo have announced a global collaboration to work more closely together on existing and future business in logistics of pharmaceuticals.
"With a shared vision of innovation in the supply chain of temperature-sensitive products, our collaboration will ensure that consumers are guaranteed a safe and sustainable service. We will also further improve our services through SkyCell's data-driven approach," said Richard Ettl, CEO of SkyCell.
Transparency throughout the shipment's journey is one of the key points where AFKLMP & SkyCell are in close collaboration in order to deliver real time data to their customers.
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo recently utilized two SkyCell containers, one SkyCell 1500c and one SkyCell 2500c, set at a temperature of 5 Celsius, to transport temperature-sensitive vaccines.
The British pharma company cargo was transported from Rome-Fiumicino to Washington Dulles International Airport without any temperature excursions and in due time in order to deliver medicines through the US.
SkyCell said through a statement: "Twelve of the twenty largest pharmaceutical manufacturers globally have independently validated the service offering of SkyCell and implemented its usage into their supply chain."
"SkyCell is already the fourth largest container company in air freight and represents the largest fleet of Internet of Things plugged-in containers in the world."
