SIA Cargo opens two new pharma corridors
Launched in September 2018, Thrucool, SIA Cargo's cold chain service to transport high-value, time-sensitive and temperature-controlled pharmaceutical cargo with speed and reliability, has been extended to the airports of Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).
With these additions, customers will have the option to use Thrucool to transport pharmaceutical products from Amsterdam or Zurich (Switzerland) to Ho Chi Minh City or Sydney (Australia) via Singapore, with assurance of maximum attention to product integrity at each step of the journey.
Also on the pharma side, SIA Cargo signed a three-year agreement with Skycell for the leasing of specialised temperature-controlled containers. The Swiss-made containers are designed to maintain pharmaceutical products between 2 to 8°C or 15 to 25°C, even under extreme ambient temperatures. (ah)
