Etihad approves high-capacity cool container

[ October 19, 2020   //   ]

Etihad Cargo has approved CSafe’s RAP temperature-controlled container to carry cargo on its flights. It will be introduced across all Etihad Cargo’s wide-body passenger and freighter services and will deliver additional payload protection for large pharmaceutical shipments, says the Middle East carrier.

The CSafe RAP uses innovative heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with advanced insulation, to maintain constant payload temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures spanning from -30°C to +54°C – the broadest operating range in the industry. Its large payload compartment of 6.68m3 accommodates up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets. Battery run time is more than 120 hours.

Manager global cool chain solutions at Etihad Cargo, Fabrice Panza, said: “As an IATA CEIV Pharma certified carrier, we take the transportation and handling of pharmaceutical shipments very seriously, adhering to the strictest processes with the very best in class equipment that ensures the best quality handling in the quickest time. Through this partnership we are now able to provide the largest and most high-tech solutions of active containers worldwide.

“We are confident as market demands become stronger for vaccines and clinical trials that we are ready to offer quality along with enough capacity to our customers,” he added.
