Viva va-Q-tec Cool

UA Cargo Viva va-Q-tec

Krisha Kucharski   “We’re very excited to add the latest in passive packaging to our suite of rental units,” said Krisha Kucharski, TempControl Product Development and Marketing manager. United Cargo has signed up for a global rental agreement with Würzburg, Germany-based va-Q-tec for temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceuticals. United plans an October launch date for the new va-Q-tainer rentals.
   United Cargo is the first North American carrier to announce the availability of va-Q-tainer rentals directly through the airline. United Cargo’s TempControl customers may choose from five sizes of va-Q-tainer Containers: Half Euro, Eurox, USx, XLx and TWINx. TWINx is the newest va-Q-tainer unit and can accommodate two U.S. pallets.
   The agreement, signed by va-Q-tec Ltd. Managing Director Dominic Hyde (L) and United Cargo President Jan Krems (R) (pictured at a ceremony in Houston, Texas) adds imaginative options for the safe transport of cool chain air freight.
   United Cargo’s centralized 24/7 Control Tower team, the experts who manage every process throughout the life cycle of each TempControl shipment, will handle all rentals.
   “The va-Q- tainer units allow us create transport shipments at temperatures from -50 °C up to +25 °C—the widest range we have ever offered our customers,” Krisha Kucharski said.
   “As the bio-pharma transport industry expands into new markets, these units will enable us to better utilize our narrow-body aircraft and reach more destinations more quickly,” she added.
