United Cargo upgrades pharma service by implementing new technology

United Cargo will further enhance both its TempControl and LifeGuard services by accepting the evo Cold Chain 2.0™ system developed by Savsu Technologies.

TempControl is United Cargo’s service for pharmaceuticals and other health care and life science material requiring temperature-controlled transport, and LifeGuard provides the carrier’s highest-priority same-day service for critically important medical shipments.

The evo Cold Chain 2.0 is a fully integrated system designed specifically to provide comprehensive end-to-end transport protection and visibility for live cells used in biotechnology and precision medicine applications.

United Cargo president, Jan Krems said: “The goal of expanding our customers’ options for packaging and transport systems is to ensure our services remain as relevant and valuable as possible.

“Combining the elevated care and expedited priority of our TempControl and LifeGuard services with the proven thermal stability and dynamic data monitoring and visibility of the evo Cold Chain 2.0 meets the needs of shippers of the most fragile and precious live material.”

Savsu Technologies president, Bruce McCormick said: “The lean outer packaging of Savsu’s durable, high-performance shipping containers will optimize United’s network for advanced therapy transport available on both widebody and specialty courier clients by making and narrowbody aircraft.”
