Shippers and forwarders can now rely on DoKaSch Temperature Solutions' Opticooler RKN on Air Canada Cargo's wide-body international flights.

Canada's largest airline had technically approved the Opticooler RAP, and approval for the RKN has now been received, says an official release from DoKaSch. "The rapidly available Opticoolers are considered extremely reliable packaging solutions for the air transport of temperature-sensitive products such as vaccines and other pharmaceuticals."

Air Canada Cargo, with its fleet of dedicated freighters and Air Canada’s vast international passenger network, has access to over 300 cities on six continents. "Air Canada Cargo’s self-handled hubs in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Chicago, London and Frankfurt provide optimal global connections, and allow for the continuous shipment of goods to and from anywhere in Air Canada’s network."

Matthieu Casey, Managing Director, Commercial, Air Canada Cargo says: “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.”

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director, DoKaSch Temperature Solutions adds: “With Air Canada Cargo, we have found another important partner in North America who has now fully technically approved our Opticooler. This is not only another important step for our growth in the region. This also means that even more pharmaceutical shippers can now rely on our reliable Opticooler. In this way, we contribute to a fast and smooth cold chain for the important and life-saving pharmaceutical shipments."

The Opticooler is a temperature-controlled active packaging solution and comes in two sizes: the RAP containers that hold up to five euro-pallets while the smaller RKN version provides space for one pallet. Both containers are battery-powered, can easily be adapted to any transport scenario, and enable customers to always keep the temperatures of their pharmaceutical products in an internal range between two and thirty degrees, the release added.
