DoKaSch welcomes its 500th Opticooler container


DoKaSch Temperature Solutions is expanding its fleet of Opticoolers with 50 new RAP-containers, bringing the total number of active containers available to 500.

The Opticooler provides reliable transport conditions for shipments across continents and climate zones or during unexpected events, for goods that must be kept within a very strict temperature range.

Equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self-regulating temperature control, the internal temperatures consistently stay well within range at any point in the storage area.

The flying “smart warehouse” only needs one electrical outlet to fully charge the energy storage after a flight and to ensure that always enough power is available to deal with unexpected events.

DoKaSch Temperature Solutions managing director, Andreas Seitz says: “We are proud, that our products have proven worthy in the day to day air cargo business and that we can offer our customers an extremely reliable product. We therefore provide a solution to tackle the difficulties in the global cool chain logistic.”

The Opticooler was originally developed for Lufthansa in 2004 and has been available for other airlines since 2014.
