Perishables? Emirates has got it all under control

[ April 3, 2017   //   ]

Emirates SkyCargo has launched a suite of solutions that help maintain the freshness of perishables and fresh consumables during transportation.

Emirates SkyFresh includes a new Ventilated Cool Dolly while experienced staff ensure that perishables such as fruits, vegetables, fresh fish and seafood, meat and flowers maintain their freshness during the entire air transportation process.

The dolly not only maintains a constant temperature while transporting cargo, but also has a ventilation system to bring in fresh air from outside which is cleaned using custom built filters, cooled and then circulated inside the refrigerated interior where the temperature sensitive perishable cargo is stored. It can carry a weight of up to 16 tonnes and can fit a variety of belly hold/ lower deck Unit Loading Devices (ULDs), including pallets, in its interior.

Emirates SkyFresh will feature three levels – Emirates SkyFresh, Emirates SkyFresh Breathe and Emirates SkyFresh Active – offering varied levels of cool chain protection for different kinds of perishables. The basic solution, Emirates SkyFresh, is geared towards temperature tolerant fruits and vegetables and will offer quick ramp transportation and thermal protection through Emirates SkyCargo’s White Cover blanket. Emirates SkyFresh Breathe provides protection for temperature sensitive perishables such as fresh cut flowers, ready to sell cut fruits and vegetables and fresh fish. Unique features will include prioritised ground handling as well as the use of the Emirates SkyFresh Ventilated Cool Dolly. Emirates SkyFresh Active will offer the highest protection for perishables that cannot withstand any temperature deviation using specialised temperature controlled containers during transportation.
