United Cargo Opens Newark TempControl Center

[ January 16, 2016   //   ]

United Cargo recently celebrated the grand opening of its new TempControl Center at its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

Jan Krems, president of United Cargo, pointed out how the new center represents two things: United Cargo’s commitment to providing the best service possible to TempControl customers at the EWR hub and its commitment to remaining a worldwide leader in the transport of pharmaceuticals and other temperature-controlled commodities.

The new facility include the features and innovations most requested by TempControl customers, including +15C to +25C controlled room temperature, the capacity to simultaneously house 48 RKN unites, electrical connectivity for all units and a number of features to ensure ease of unit movement into and out of the center.

“This is just the beginning of the enhancements we have planned for TempControl,” Kerms commented. “Our vision is to use this Newark facility as a blueprint for similar TempControl Centers in other United hubs – such as Chicago O’Hare and San Francisco.

Kerms also used the occasion to announce Vienna as the latest city to join the worldwide TempControl network. The addition of VIE brings the total of TempControl-certified cities worldwide to 56.
