SkyCell provides ‘Peace of Mind’ with new insurance offering
April 9, 2019: SkyCell, pharma container solutions provider to the air cargo industry, has introduced a hassle-free insurance offering with coverage of up to $ 4 million per container.
This insurance add-on, called 'Peace of Mind Insurance', has been launched in order to eliminate the risk of product loss for its clients.
Backed by a multinational commercial insurance company, SkyCell is the only provider of pharma containers to offer such a defacto temperature performance guarantee for the transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals.
'We want to give all our clients a peace of mind when shipping their sensitive pharmaceuticals and to stop worrying about temperature excursions. On top of providing them with the safest pharma containers in the market, our 'Peace of Mind Insurance' systematically eliminates the financial impact of product loss,' said Richard Ettl, CEO of SkyCell.
For every shipment, SkyCell experts use the SkyCell Transport Planner's risk assessment to define lane SOPs together with the shipper, freight forwarder and airlines, producing a comprehensive lane risk analysis even for shipments to remote destinations.
'Our SkyCell Transport Planner helps us to identify the risks, mitigate them and insure them. With our new insurance offering, we want our clients not to have the slightest doubt about the safe transport of their valuable cargo anymore. This is an absolute novelty in our business,' said Marrie Groeneveld, Chief Commercial Officer at SkyCell.
SkyCell's outstanding quality was just recently verified by one of the Big Four international audit companies. In their study, the auditors scrutinized and audited all SkyCell shipment results of the last 12 months. According to the results of the study, temperature excursions happened only during 0.1 percent of the transports with a SkyCell container.
