SIA Launches Thrucool Service for Pharmaceutical Cargo

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

Thrucoo offers dedicated cold chain services to safeguard the integrity of pharmaceutical and healthcare shipments during air transportation. 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. 

To further preserve product integrity in cold chain handling both on the ground and in the air, SIA has partnered with leading terminal operators SATS, Cargologic and Qantas Freight to launch a ‘quality corridor’ along the Zurich-Singapore-Sydney route as an initial offering. 

Complying with standards adopted from the IATA CEIV Pharma** programme, the quality corridor addresses the industry’s need for safety, care and efficiency in the transportation of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. This reduces the potential for product loss attributed to handling and environmental factors such as temperature excursions during carriage. 

SIA was the first airline in the Asia-Pacific region to be awarded the IATA CEIV Pharma Certification and is part of international and regional CEIV communities such as Pharma Changi, and Pharma.Aero, which jointly pursue innovation in the shipping of pharmaceuticals. 

The CEIV Pharma certification imposes extensive standards that adhere to guidelines set under the European Union’s Good Distribution Practice, and World Health Organization Annex 5 Good Distribution Practices for Pharmaceutical Products.
