Meeting future expectations in pharmaceutical sustainability a key component of shipping collaboration
SkyCell, a manufacturer of pharma containers, has partnered with All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest airline, as it aims to assist pharma customers that are shipping in and out of the country.
The partnership with SkyCell is expected to see the airline reach more of its sustainability goals. According to ANA, it expects there to be stronger demand for sustainability in the future, and feels that it can offer its customers more sustainable shipping choices through SkyCell.
SkyCell—which at the moment has one service center in Japan—will be supporting ANA with its hybrid pharma containers across different temperature ranges. SkyCell containers maintain internal temperature stability in external conditions from as low as -30°C (-22°F) to as high as 70°C (158°F).
Among their various features, the containers can hold stable temperatures without the need for external charging for long periods of time, while also using lightweight, environmentally friendly material.
“… As the first Japanese IATA CEIV (International Air Transport Association Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics) Pharma certified airline since 2017, we have been expanding our capabilities to transport temperature-controlled pharmaceuticals at the global standard and beyond,” says Dai Yuasa, ANA Cargo’s senior vice president of global marketing. “Especially through this Covid-19 situation, now more than ever, transporting pharmaceuticals safely is a social mission for every process involved in the chain.”
