CSafe signs container lease agreement with China Airlines


CSafe Global has signed a master lease agreement with China Airlines offering transport and leasing services for CSafe RKN active temperature controlled containers on the airline’s flights.

The RKN active container was specifically developed for the life sciences, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, and is the only compressor-driven air cargo container of its kind with approvals to fly on either upper deck or lower deck of aircraft.

The container’s performance is helped by the thermal capabilities of its ThermoCor insulation providing extended operational efficiencies, as well as to the unit’s proprietary air movement, heating, and cooling technologies allowing the temperature controlled container to maintain a consistent user-selected payload set-point across ambient temperatures from -30C up to +49C.

China Airlines says: “Our healthcare and pharmaceutical customers who require strict temperature control of their products during transport will benefit from access to CSafe’s industry-leading cold chain technology and global customer support.”

CSafe Global vice president of global marketing, Brad Jennings says: “With 97 destinations in 27 countries, China Airlines has a comprehensive network serving pharmaceutical companies around the world. CSafe and our customers are very excited about the addition of China Airlines to our airline partner network and look forward to a fruitful and long-term collaboration.”
