Saudia Cargo has signed an agreement to use RKN and RAP Opticooler containers from DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, and the airline has signed a master agreement with the ULD provider.
The Opticooler is specially designed for extreme weather conditions, keeping cargo within temperature ranges of 2 to 8C or 15 to 25C even in temperatures of up to 50C, which is common in Saudi Arabia and the surrounding regions.
Adel Elshazly of Saudia Cargo says: “We are very pleased to offer our customers a highly reliable packaging solution to transport temperature-sensitive shipments with DoKaSch Opticoolers. Especially pharmaceuticals must be kept within strict temperature tolerances throughout the entire supply chain, regardless of the ambient conditions, which are a challenge in particular in our region.”
DoKaSch Temperature Solutions managing director, Andreas Seitz says: “We are pleased that Saudia Cargo will be joining our global airline network. Saudia Cargo is a very important partner in many aspects.”
“Not only do they have one of the world’s most modern aircraft fleets, but Jeddah is a very important trading hub for us as well. Now our containers are accessible much easier in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.”
