Saudia Cargo has announced the introduction of its new Pharma.2.World Active product, effective 15 May 2014.

Using the latest design in active heating and cooling cargo containers, the Active solution is able to maintain the correct internal temperatures required for the transport of essential pharmaceutical and life science products.

“We are very excited to be launching the first phase of Pharma.2.World Active,” commented Nabil Khojah, CEO at Saudia Cargo. “This new product will enable us to offer a reliable, high quality service to the pharmaceutical and life science industries for which temperature management is crucial.”

Saudia Cargo customers will have access to the latest air cargo containers specifically designed for pharmaceutical and life science products because of the agreement with Envirotainer and CSafe, under which they can lease a choice of active containers from selected origin points on the Saudia Cargo network. An upgrade to the airline’s Riyadh facilities and selected origin points will ensure that the correct product temperature is maintained throughout the journey.

Additional benefits of Pharma.2.World Active include: ready-to-lease containers offering temperature control ranging from -20ËšC to +25ËšC; a dedicated product manager with specially trained sta! and specific handling procedures; temperature, battery and re-icing checks as necessary during acceptance, transit and delivery; and priority access to capacity on selected flights and pre-alerts to facilitate customs clearance and delivery.
