DoKaSch Temperature Solutions achieved technical approval for its Opticooler RKN active containers from American Airlines Cargo.

Forwarders can now use the fast and highly reliable temperature-controlled packaging solution on all flights operated by the U.S. carrier, says a release from DoKaSch. "The technical approval of the RKN by American Airlines Cargo is another step in ensuring customer satisfaction in the U.S. market and further strengthening DoKaSch TS's network. Given the very high availability in the market and resilience of the Opticooler packaging solution, customers have enhanced options to operate safe and reliable supply chains for temperature-sensitive goods to and from the U.S."

DoKaSch recently received the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for the RKN containers while the Opticooler RAP was already established in the U.S, the release said.

“The technical approval of the Opticooler RKN, along with the well-established approval of the Opticooler RAP, is an excellent addition to our existing options for transporting temperature-sensitive cargo," says Eric Mathieu, Head of Customer Experience, American Airlines Cargo. "It gives our pharmaceutical customers a reliable option for safely transporting their sensitive shipments in a highly regulated market. The Opticooler meets our high standards and supports our global cold chain network."

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director, DoKaSch adds: “The USA is one of the biggest and most important export markets for pharmaceuticals. The technical approval by U.S. carrier American Airlines Cargo is therefore an important step for our growth strategy in the region. It gives even more pharmaceutical shippers in the U.S. easy and trouble-free access to our Opticoolers for the global distribution of their high-value and high-risk cargo. Combined with our high availability and reliability, the Opticooler 'Made in Germany' contributes greatly to the reliability of the global cold chain.”

DoKaSch Opticoolers are available in two sizes: RAP, providing space for four CP 1 pallets (or five euro-pallets) and smaller RKN version for one CP 1 pallet (or any standard U.S. pallet, up to max. 48 inches x 48 inches), the release said. "Electrically powered and fully air conditioned, they can cool as well as heat without using dry ice. Batteries allow continuous operation of the container when grid power is not available. Thus, they can transport valuable and sensitive pharmaceuticals without any concern for temperature excursions. They can also be used as temporary storage facilities if adequate infrastructure is not available."
