United Cargo leases cool-chain containers from ThermoSafe

Cool-chain container company ThermoSafe, subsidiary of Sonoco, has gained United Cargo’s business for the leasing of the “PharmaPort 360,” a temperature-controlled bulk shipping container designed for the movement of pharmaceutical products – enabling United Cargo’s clients to lease the containers directly from the airline.

The smart containers hold a +5°C temperature setting for long periods, hardware that detects the container’s GPS location and temperature readings in real time – all of which is connected to a cloud-based system.

ThermoSafe’s products are comparable to other internet of things (IoT)-enabled industry solutions like CSafe, DoKaSch and Va-Q-Tec, which all offer cool-chain container solutions to airlines who target pharma shippers. United Cargo is the company’s first North American airline.
