March 18, 2021 More Options for Temperature Handling Requirements
To provide you with more choice when booking shipments of pharmaceutical and healthcare products transported in passive packaging (without active temperature control), Air Canada Cargo is launching its enhanced
AC Pharmacair solution.
Starting April 1, all AC Pharmacair shipments will be handled as Priority1. Based on the specific temperature handling requirements for your shipments,
you’ll be able to choose AC Pharmacair Simple or AC Pharmacair Plus:
AC Pharmacair Simple: For products transported in packaging designed to withstand general facility temperature conditions.
AC Pharmacair Plus: For shipments requiring specific temperature handling in our facilities: (COL) +2°C to +8°C and (CRT) +15°C to +25°C
AC Pharmacair continues to be available throughout our network. Locations and temperature handling capabilities are listed here. We’ve also harmonized the tender and retrieval times for all AC Pharmacair shipments to four hours across our network.
