Swiss WorldCargo and va-Q-tec Sign Agreement
Swiss WorldCargo have signed a partnership agreement with va-Q-tec, renowned for their passive closed cold chain container solutions.
The additional offering of va-Q-tec’s passive solution containers will support pharmaceutical manufacturers and forwarders to ship their temperature sensitive goods within the global network of Swiss WorldCargo. Dominic Hyde, Managing Director va-Q-tec Limited, says: “va-Q-tec has been requested by pharma customers to establish a partnership with Swiss WorldCargo to enable direct container rentals. Many pharma shippers and forwarders see the cargo division of SWISS as a strategic partner for reliably transporting pharmaceuticals and they want the simplicity of ordering the va-Q-tainer containers through the airline directly. Today we have made this step and we look forward to a successful cooperation with Swiss WorldCargo on a global basis”.
“With va-Q-tec’s cutting edge containers we welcome the opportunity to offer a more complete, value-added passive solution set to our pharma & healthcare client base worldwide,” remarks Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo at SWISS. “As a specialist and global leader in the air transportation of high-value and care-intensive shipments, we are excited about the partnership agreement with a leading supplier like va-Q-tec, sharing similar values and reputation for quality and operational excellence.”
