Ethiopian Airlines is improving the quality of its climate-controlled services through the use of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions’ Opticooler container.
The Opticooler is equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self regulating temperature control, so that temperature sensitive goods, in particular pharmaceuticals such as insulin and vaccines, stay within range at any point in the storage area.
The airline has also signed a master agreement with the German ULD provider and has also opened the largest cargo terminal in Africa at its hub in Addis Ababa.
The Addis Ababa hub focuses on handling temperature sensitive goods, and since February, Ethiopian Airlines has offered the DoKaSch active container to fly goods through the hub.
Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services managing director, Fitsum Abady says: “We are very glad to offer our customers a highly reliable packaging solution to transport
temperature-sensitive shipments with DoKaSch’s Opticooler.
“In this fast growing and strongly competitive market, it is important that we offer our customers the best packaging solution for their sensitive cargo.”
DoKaSch Temperature Solutions managing director, Andreas Seitz says: “Ethiopian
Airlines is the most successful African carrier and their hub in Addis Ababa develops very positive regarding the cargo handlings. Therefore, we are very pleased, that we could expand our African network by signing the master agreement with Ethiopian Airlines.”
