Partnership allows for distribution of packager’s temperature-controlled container
Sonoco ThermoSafe, a temperature assurance packaging company, and Turkish Airlines, have signed a master lease agreement to offer Sonoco’s Pegasus unit load device (ULD) temperature-controlled bulk shipping container right to customers. The company signed a similar deal with AirBridge Cargo Airlines back in 2020.
According to the packager, the product is engineered with composite materials, offering a lighter solution that is more damage-resistant than traditional metal containers. Additionally, the Pegasus ULD has a fully integrated, FAA-approved telemetry system that provides real-time, cloud-based data on payload, ambient temperature, and key environmental factors, synchronized with GPS location.
“We are delighted to partner with Turkish Airlines for inclusion of the Pegasus ULD container to its cold chain service, TK PHARMA,” says Bourji Mourad, head of logistics and partner management for Sonoco ThermoSafe’s bulk rental group.
