SkyCell launches insurance add-on for pharma shippers

Zurich, Switzerland: SkyCell is offering an insurance add-on for shippers of high-value, temperature-sensitive cargo.

“SkyCell offers you the exclusive opportunity to upgrade your container lease with the Peace of Mind Insurance as an additional service. Included in the Peace of Mind Insurance is the coverage of up to €4million product value per container against product damage due to temperature deviations during transport.” This offer is also available in Swiss francs or US dollars, the company says.

Most cold chain container companies or logistics companies insure against gross and willful negligence but not comprehensive insurance coverage such as offered by SkyCell.

“Safety and quality are our top priorities. Therefore, we stress the importance of the impeccable and proven track record of our shipments. This is achieved by conducting lane risk analysis (using the SkyCell Transport Planner), lane SOPs with all parties and the reliability of our cutting-edge container technology.”

“This enables us to offer the industry’s first insurance for temperature performance backed by one of the largest commercial insurance companies in the world,” SkyCell says.
