United Cargo said Wednesday it will enhance its TempControl service by becoming the first U.S. carrier to lease and transport temperature-sensitive containers manufactured by SkyCell.
SkyCell said it is a “Swiss-based, award-winning provider of temperature-controlled containers whose highly secure and efficient design features patented insulation and a special rechargeable cooling technology.”
SkyCell said each container is equipped with Internet of Things sensors that connect to its cloud-based, blockchain-encrypted software. The sensors monitor temperature, humidity and other factors.
“TempControl’s transport of vaccines and other high-value biopharmaceutical shipments is increasing rapidly,” said Jan Krems, president of United Cargo. “Extremely precise, long-duration temperature control is required for the safe transport of these highly sensitive shipments. That’s why we’re very excited to launch this partnership.”
