Delta Cargo is introducing CSafe RAP containers to its cold-chain programme, with the units being aimed at pharma and life-science companies requiring strict temperature control.

The CSafe RAP utilises heating and compressor driven cooling technologies along with superior insulation to maintain constant temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures, along with a battery life exceeding 120 hours.

The payload compartment can accommodate up to four standard US pallets or five Euro pallets.

Delta Cargo vice president, Shawn Cole says: “Delta is focused on driving innovation not only within the company but also within the industry. The introduction of the CSafe RAP container is a win for our customers who can now choose from the most technologically advanced containers to safely transport sensitive Pharma freight.

“Alongside our joint venture partners, Air France-KLM Cargo and Virgin Atlantic Cargo, we can now offer our customers tailored Pharma options across our broad trans-Atlantic network.”

CSafe Global chief executive officer, Jeff Pepperworth says: “CSafe is delighted about the addition of Delta to the growing roster of airlines that have gained flight approval for our CSafe RAP active container. With Delta’s extensive global network and first-rate cold-chain pharma programme, along with the superior quality and performance of the CSafe RAP, pharma shippers will have a potent combination to effectively transport temperature-sensitive, life-enhancing medicines to needing patients throughout the world.”
