Delta Cargo approves CSafe’s RAP cool-chain containers
Nov 16, 2018: One of the major US carriers Delta Cargo is now introducing the new CSafe RAP container to its cold-chain pharma programme.
The CSafe RAP container utilises innovative heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with superior insulation, to maintain constant temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures ranging from -30°C to +54°C; the broadest operating conditions in the industry.
The large payload compartment easily accommodates up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets, and the container has an extended battery run time of over 120 hours with efficiencies found in its best-in-class operating system.
“Alongside our joint venture partners, Air France-KLM Cargo and Virgin Atlantic Cargo, we can now offer our customers tailored Pharma options across our broad trans-Atlantic network,” explained Shawn Cole, Delta's vice president-Cargo.
Jeff Pepperworth, CEO of CSafe Global added: “With Delta’s extensive global network and first-rate cold-chain pharma programme, along with the superior quality and performance of the CSafe RAP, pharma shippers will have a potent combination to effectively transport temperature-sensitive, life-enhancing medicines to needing patients throughout the world.”
Delta received IATA’s CEIV Certification last year for the Atlanta warehouse and headquarters.
To date, Delta has 50 Pharma approved stations around the globe with seven CEIV approved facilities in Europe and one in Asia, through partners airlines and handlers, all connected to Delta’s largest cargo operation in Atlanta.
