DoKaSch expands its cool container fleet
Sept 4, 2017: Cool container solutions provider DoKaSch Temperature Solutions GmbH is expanding its fleet of Opticoolers with 50 new RAP-containers. Now 500 active ‘Made in Germany’ containers are globally available. More units are expected, to push ahead with further expansion.
The Opticooler provides reliable transport conditions for shipments across continents and climate zones or during unexpected events, for goods that must be kept within a very strict temperature range. These shipments mainly include pharmaceuticals such as insulin, vaccines and other bio-pharmaceuticals, but also high-tech equipment.
Equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self-regulating temperature control, the internal temperatures consistently stay well within range at any point in the storage area. Temperatures between 2 - 8°C or 15 - 25°C for example can be maintained, regardless of the ambient temperatures, that may vary between -30°C during a Canadian winter or +50°C during a middle-eastern summer.
The flying smart warehouse only needs one electrical outlet to fully charge the energy storage after a flight and to ensure that always enough power is available to deal with unexpected events. A full charge, from 50 to 100 percent, can be achieved approximately within two hours.
“We are proud, that our products have proven worthy in the day to day air cargo business and that we can offer our customers an extremely reliable product. We therefore provide a solution to tackle the difficulties in the global cool chain logistic” says Andreas Seitz, managing director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions.
Originally the Opticooler was developed for Lufthansa in 2004. Since 2014, the containers are available at many other airlines as well.
