An example of efforts to improve air freight packaging for pharma products is an MoU signed in June between Etihad Cargo with B Medical Systems, a manufacturer and distributor of medical refrigeration devices – to develop more sustainable temperature-controlled containers that work on passive cooling technology for the transport of life-saving drugs, vaccines and high-value pharmaceuticals.
These units will retain temperatures from -80 to 25 degrees Celsius for up to five days without an external power source, with load capabilities ranging from two to 1,500 litres and an operational life of over ten years. A commercial launch date will be announced following the successful completion of trials.
