United Cargo gives CSafe RAP the thumbs up


United Cargo has enhanced its TempControl service for shippers of life science products and pharmaceuticals by approving CSafe RAP active containers.

The CSafe RAP utilises innovative heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with advanced ThermoCor VIP insulation to maintain constant temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures.

The payload compartment of 6.68m3 carries up to four standard US pallets or five Euro pallets.

The RAP has a battery life exceeding 120 hours meaning temperature integrity and product viability is maintained on long journeys.

United Cargo president, Jan Krems says: “The demand for pharmaceuticals and other health care products grows every year, and customers and patients worldwide are seeking expanded capacity across our TempControl network.

“With the new CSafe RAP, we can meet this need using the innovative CSafe technology that is proven by years of impeccable performance and trusted by our customers.”

CSafe Global chief executive officer, Jeff Pepperworth says: “The combination of United Cargo’s expansive TempControl network and the superior performance of the CSafe RAP container offers life-science companies a powerful and reliable solution to move temperature-sensitive healthcare products to patients across the globe.”

The leasing options for the CSafe RKN will be made available for the RAP, and customers can lease containers directly from CSafe or United Cargo.
