Sonoco ThermoSafe and Unilode Aviation Solutions have announced a partnership for the maintenance, repair and handling of Sonoco ThermoSafe’s passive bulk temperature-controlled containers at several key locations.

This co-operation will play an important part in enabling the safe and efficient transport of pharmaceuticals and other temperature-sensitive products around the world.

Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Pegasus ULD is the world’s first FAA and EASA-approved passive bulk temperature-controlled container for pharmaceutical use, which enables it to speed through international ground handling and customs processes at the lowest possible cost. Engineered with composite materials, the Pegasus ULD offers a lighter solution that is substantially more damage-resistant than traditional metal containers.
