Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has launched an internally developed and cost effective LD3 container that keeps temperature sensitive cargo cool when transported on the ground and in the air.
Called the “White Container,” it’s the latest addition to Emirates SkyCargo’s Cool Chain portfolio, and has been designed specifically as an intermediate temperature control solution which is ideal for generic healthcare products and food perishables.
The inside of the White Container is coated with thermal insulators, which prevents the transfer of outside heat into the container, and uses coolant trays allowing handlers to add or replenish dry ice or coolants without disturbing the packaging. 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 do 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 SkyCargon kehittyneitä suojaustekniikoita ja ratkaisuja pilaantuvien tuotteiden kuljetuksessa ovat: Cool Chain Premium, Cool Chain Advanced ja Cool Chain Basic, jotka kukin on suunniteltu vastaamaan asiakkaiden erityisvaatimuksia.
The cool chain portfolio is supported by Emirates SkyCargo’s temperature controlled handling facilities that has expanded with the recent opening of the cargo carrier’s freighter terminal at Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Al Maktoum International Airport where it has an advanced storage system and a perishable area designed to handle about 140,000 tonnes of cargo per annum. It features three large areas each with different temperature ranges between 18°C to 25°C.
