HONG KONG's Cathay Pacific Cargo has signed a master agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions for renting the company's latest-technology active containers, the RKN and RAP Opticooler, to improve the shipment of temperature-sensitive goods and pharmaceutical products.
The service will be rolled out across the airline's network in the first quarter of 2015, a statement from the carrier said.
"Cathay Pacific Cargo is pleased to be the first Asian carrier offering our customers an alternative solution for their temperature-sensitive air cargo shipments," said cargo general manager Mark Sutch.
"We are convinced that this cooperation with Cathay Pacific will provide a great solution for pharmaceutical shippers and forwarders around the globe," said managing director of DoKaSch, Andreas Seitz.
The DoKaSch containers safeguard the efficacy of vital pharmaceuticals throughout global transportation chains. The made in Germany Opticooler is said to be well known for its "exceptional reliability and performance".
