Qatar Airways Cargo has enhanced its cool chain services by offering CSafe RAP containers, designed to transport large volumes of pharmaceutical shipments.
The CSafe RAP utilises heating and compressor driven cooling technologies together with advanced ThermoCor VIP insulation to eliminate the payload risks associated with extreme ambient temperature conditions and long duration shipments.
It is the only Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency approved active compressor driven container permitted in both the upper and lower decks of commercial aircraft.
The container can maintain constant payload temperatures at ambient temperatures from -30C to +54C, and has a maximum payload volume of 6.68m3.
The RAP can accommodate up to four standard US pallets of five standard Euro pallets, and has an extended battery life of well over 100 hours.
Qatar Airways acting chief officer for cargo, Guillaume Halleux says: “A seamless cool chain is paramount to maintain the efficacy of vital pharmaceuticals. By introducing CSafe’s new RAP container in our product offering, we take our commitment in maintaining high standards in handling pharmaceuticals a step further.”
The new Active container is an ideal addition to our QR Pharma solution, offering our clients unprecedented temperature reliability, product stability over longer distances and time span including large payload capacity.”
CSafe Global vice president of marketing and partner management, Brad Jennings says: “The addition of the CSafe RAP into the Qatar Airways Cargo portfolio inaugurates an important new chapter in the growth of the relationship and collaboration with one of the world’s leading cargo carrier.”
We are certainly excited about this opportunity to strengthen the QR Pharma service offering with the addition of our new CSafe RAP active container solution.”
