DoKaSch Temperature Solutions has signed a master agreement with Etihad Cargo to use its Opticooler across the airline’s TempCheck cool chain network.
The Opticooler is a German made, electric air conditioned container that can keep pharmaceuticals exactly within their temperature range.
The master agreement will allow Etihad Cargo to expand its TempCheck cool chain service for temperature controlled pharmaceuticals, as its customers will be able to lease the Opticooler from Etihad Cargo.
DoKaSch Temperature Solutions managing director, Andreas Seitz says: “With Etihad Cargo we are able to expand our service network for Opticoolers further. All leading airlines of the Middle East are now our partners as they want to offer their clients the most reliable packaging solution to transport highly temperature-sensitive air cargo shipments.”
Etihad Cargo vice president, Justin Carr says: “Our focus in 2018 is “closer customer engagement” and, by adding additional solutions for the most critical, time- and temperature-sensitive shipments, we are moving in the right direction to cater to our customers’ needs, hand in hand with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions.”
He adds: “We offer a specially designed product using the latest equipment, processes and SOPs to keep the cargo’s integrity and make sure it arrives in the quickest possible time adhering to the highest compliance guidelines.”
The agreement covers Etihad’s cargo hub in Abu Dhabi and its whole network of more than 90 destinations in over 50 countries.
