Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has launched an internally developed and cost effective LD3 container to keep temperature-sensitive cargo cool when transported on the ground and in the air.
The "White Container" is the latest addition to Emirates SkyCargo's "Cool Chain" portfolio, and has been designed specifically as an intermediate temperature control solution, ideal for generic healthcare products and food perishables.
It can be used for shipments requiring temperatures between 2 C - 8 C and 5 C - 25 C and is a reliable solution for time and temperature sensitive cargo that does not fall into the very high sensitive category.
"After two years of intensive research and development by our team, we are introducing a new cool chain offering to the air freight market. The White Container is an affordable option and does not replace Emirates SkyCargo's high-end Cool Chain Premium solution. Instead it offers an intermediate solution that is cost effective for commodities, such as generic healthcare products and food perishables. It's also environmentally friendly and meets all regulatory requirements," said Moaza Al Falahi, Emirates Vice President Cargo Product Development and Local Affairs.
"This in-house developed solution is simple but efficient, and has no backhaul issues. We are the only air cargo operator to offer this specific solution, and along with our other offerings such as active temperature controlled containers, warehouses, cool dollies and white covers, we are at the forefront in offering a comprehensive portfolio of cool chain solutions for all types of time and temperature sensitive cargo," she added.
Emirates SkyCargo's range of advanced protective techniques and solutions in transporting perishable products include Cool Chain Premium, Cool Chain Advanced and Cool Chain Basic, each of which is designed to meet specific requirements of customers.
