Emirates and DuPont celebrate 10 years of success


Emirates SkyCargo and DuPont Safety & Construction have celebrated the 10th anniversary of their partnership for cold chain solutions in the air cargo industry.

The two companies launched their partnership when they released the Emirates SkyCargo White Cover – the first pallet cover made with Tyvek that revolutionised cold chain protection of temperature-sensitive products in transit.

The Emirates SkyCargo White Cover provided a cost-effective solution for the cold chain industry relating to thermal protection, gas permeability, ease-of-use and installation, and recyclability.

In 2016, Emirates SkyCargo introduced White Cover Advanced for protecting temperature-sensitive shipments, in particular pharmaceuticals, followed up with the launch of White Cover Xtreme in August 2017.

Rose Lee, president of DuPont Safety & Construction says: “DuPont is extremely proud of our partnership with Emirates. We have been on our partnership journey for 10 years together, creating innovative solutions that are leading the cold chain space.”

Dennis Lister, vice president of cargo commercial development at Emirates says: “Our partnership with DuPont has been very fruitful and has resulted in the development of the revolutionary White Cover range of products. Over the years we have improved the functionality of the White Cover and have released enhanced versions including the most recent White Cover Xtreme, providing an excellent first level of protection for cargo.”

Steve Brabbs, global technical leader of DuPont Tyvek Cargo Covers says Emirates has been an ideal partner, saying: “When they bring us a new problem, they sit down with us to collaborate in a very open way, so that we can find solutions which work for them technically, practically and economically.”
