‘Thrucool’ launched for pharmaceutical shipments

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced the launch of Thrucool, a new service to transport high-value, time-sensitive and temperature-controlled pharmaceutical cargo.

Thrucoolis a set of dedicated cold chain services to safeguard the integrity of pharmaceutical and healthcare shipments during air transport. These include priority uplift and handling, quick ramp transfers at airports, cold room facilities, as well as thermal blankets and covers for crucial insulation from external factors. Customers can also opt to place shipments in temperature-controlled containers, and track their location during shipping.

SIA has partnered with terminal operators SATS, Cargologic and Qantas Freight to launch a ‘quality corridor’ along the Zurich-Singapore-Sydney route as an initial service. Complying with standards adopted from the IATA CEIV Pharma1 program, the quality corridor addresses the industry’s need for safety, care and efficiency in the transport of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. This reduces the potential for product loss attributed to handling and environmental factors such as temperature excursions during carriage.
