   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.”

   SkyCell CEO Richard Ettl said, “United and SkyCell share the goal of eliminating temperature excursions and reducing the CO2 footprint in global pharma transportation.”

At the midpoint of 2019, many experts expect the economy’s momentum to slow due to the potential for trade tensions to accelerate, global economies to deteriorate or climate-related risks to materialize.

The Port of Prince Rupert handled a record 26.7 million metric tons of cargo in 2018, up 10% year-over-year.
