Deal is expected to offer airline with additional variety when it comes to shipping temperature-sensitive pharma products.
Cathay Cargo has signed a global long-term rental agreement with Tower Cold Chain—a company that rents containers to the pharma industry for temperature-specific transport—giving its customers access to a wider range of temperature-controlled solutions in terms of container size and payload volume.
With this new partnership, Cathay Pharma customers will have increased flexibility and variety when shipping high-value, temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products in both Euro and US pallet sizes. It also means that customers can take advantage of 120+ hour protection for products that require an internal temperature of -80°C (ultracold), -60°C (ultracold), -20°C (frozen), +5°C (refrigerated) and +20°C (controlled room temperature). The deal also marks Tower’s first global airline service agreement.
“We are delighted to partner with Tower Cold Chain to further enhance our Cathay Pharma portfolio with more choices and innovative solutions to our customers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and life-science industries,” says Frosti Lau, Cathay Cargo’s general manager for cargo service delivery. “Tower’s advanced passive containers deliver proven physical and temperature protection, across all supply chains.”
