SJU, SXB and STR Added to TempControl Network
United Cargo is excited to announce further expansion of the network for TempControl, our industry-leading service for time- and temperature-sensitive shipments. San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU); Strasbourg, France (SXB) and Stuttgart, Germany (STR) are now certified as TempControl handling locations. These additions bring the number of TempControl certified handling locations to 62. Adding San Juan to our TempControl network correlates with today's launch of a weekly equipment upgauge on SJU flights. Each Wednesday, one of United's flights between SJU and our New York/Newark hub (EWR) will now operate with Boeing 767-400 equipment. This upgauge is particularly valuable for TempControl customers, as there are 49 FDA-approved pharmaceutical plants in Puerto Rico and 14 of the world's top 20 pharma companies have manufacturing operations there. The new widebody service provides pharma shippers a degree of connectivity to and from SJU they haven?t enjoyed before. Strasbourg and Stuttgart represent the 23rd and 24th European locations in UA's TempControl network which also offer additional connectivity to both stations via our road feeder services to Frankfurt, Munich, Paris and Zurich.
