EgyptAir Cargo to launch new pharma product

EgyptAir Cargo is to launch a pharmaceuticals product this summer using passive containers from va-Q-tec’s passive container rental service.

The two companies sealed the deal at last week’s Air Cargo Europe event in Munich.

The North African carrier has signed a deal which will it use temperature-controlled solutions for six temperature ranges from -70 degrees Celsius to +25 degrees Celsius in five sizes.

EgyptAir Cargo’s hub is in Cairo and it says va-Q-tec’s passive container rental service will enable deviation-free transportation of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals around the globe to over 70 destinations.
