United Cargo is pleased to announce that, effective August 15, we will accept the va-Q-tainer container line for transport on our fleet of more than 150 widebody aircraft. The va-Q-tec containers provide customers leading-edge passive capabilities across United’s unrivaled global network. The va-Q-tec containers use passive technology – there are no batteries, heating elements or fans. Their high-performance thermal container system utilizes vacuum insulation panels to protect internal contents from extreme ambient temperatures. These containers offer a low-complexity option suitable for the transport of temperature-sensitive goods – particularly pharmaceutical and biotechnological material.
