Reportedly provides 270 hours of independent runtime for temperature-sensitive pharma transportation
SkyCell, a manufacturer of pharma containers, has launched its new 1500X container, a hybrid container that enables pharma shipments for products that need to be kept at 2-8°C (36-46°F) or 15-25°C (59-77°F), and has a tested market-leading independent runtime of 270 hours at 20°C (68°F). The container also comes fully equipped with SkyCell’s proprietary SECURE software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for in-transit monitoring.
The objective for this new container is to help temperature-sensitive goods remain unaffected even through unforeseen circumstances. Meanwhile, alongside that, SECURE provides customers real-time visibility of shipments, which can help close supply chain visibility gaps and allow corrective actions to be made through critical data that is gathered during transportation.
“… The 1500X is 120 kg [265 lbs] lighter than its predecessor yet has a greater payload capacity—enabling our pharma clients to make their supply chains more efficient and sustainable,” notes Nico Ros, CTO and co-founder of SkyCell. “Technical innovations like using graphene as part of our patented heat distribution enhance the 1500X’s recharge capability when in a cold room at customs clearance or in a reefer truck, protecting pharma products even longer, and demonstrating our ability to truly push the limits of smart design.”
