More than just food and beverages

Perishables extend into many other aspects of our day to day lives. Think about a time when you have needed a vaccination, or required a specific medicine. Those pharmaceuticals needed to be transported to you quickly, hygienically and undamaged. The transportation of perishables is a huge activity that happens behind-the-scenes; it’s not usually something that comes up in conversation at the Sunday BBQ, however, it’s significance is undeniable.

Here’s how it works: the AeroTHERM has a unique frameless design, composite thermally-insulated honeycomb panels and a patented sealable thermal protective curtain door. All these features combine to shield its cargo from heat, humidity and cold during transportation. The contents of our containers remain protected from temperature spikes ranging from high-exposure sunlight to sub-zero freeze, maintaining the safety and usability of pharmaceutical supplies and food products. 

The aerotuf AEROTHERM containerOur AeroTHERM ULDs not only offer the most efficient and safe way to transport your perishables, but they are also sustainable and cost-effective. Our containers are built with high quality materials and the frameless design requires up to 75% less repairs per unit per year, saving you money and time. 

The lightweight composite structure of the AeroTHERM also means that our customers save on fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprints – a win-win for both their business’s bottom lines and the environment. The ULD is 100% recyclable and manufactured within a state-of-the-art zero landfill facility, creating a container that is cleaner and greener than anything else on the market. Its unique thermal heating and cooling properties also eliminate the need for ancillary equipment such as thermal blankets or gel pads.
