DoKaSch Temperature Solutions’ Opticooler RKN container is now available on Air Canada Cargo’s wide-body international flights, following approval of the equipment. The carrier has already approved Opticooler’s RAP model. The Opticooler is smaller version of the Opticooler RAP, with space for a single pallet compared with five for the RKN. Both containers are battery-powered and can keep products at between two and 30°C.
Air Canada’s widebody fleet operates to over 300 cities on six continents along with interline and trucking partnerships.
The technical approval of the Opticooler will enable Air Canada Cargo to strengthen its cool chain capacities for its AC Absolute service for pharma producers and their forwarders.
Managing director, commercial at Air Canada Cargo, Matthieu Casey, said: “We have always been focused on a strong cool chain integrity within our network because the supply of lifesaving medicines is absolutely crucial. Thanks to our global network, we can provide highly reliable and quick transport to a wide variety of destinations. The Opticoolers provided by DoKaSch Temperature Solutions meet our high standards and will help support our extensive cool chain network in the Americas and beyond.”
