El Al signs DoKaSch deal


EL AL Israel Airlines has signed a master rental agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions for the German provider’s Opticooler containers. With some of the world’s largest pharma manufacturers based in Israel, El Al will be able to safely transport temperature-sensitive products to and from its headquarters at Ben Gurion Airport in the belly of its passenger fleet as well as a dedicated cargo aircraft to 42 destinations including New York, Boston and Los Angeles.

Pharma manager at EL AL cargo division, Moshe Popovich, said: “Pharmaceuticals are the fastest growing market segment in the air cargo industry. However, temperature fluctuations during transport can pose a serious threat to the integrity of these sensitive products. The Master Rental Agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions supports our high standards in this area and enables us to offer our customers stable and high-quality transportation for their pharmaceutical shipments.”

DoKaSch global marketing manager and business development manager for Israel, Dor Saidof, added: “In a country with a hot climate like Israel, it is essential that the packaging solution can reliably protect the sensitive goods.”
