Emirates SkyCargo has strengthened its cool chain premium service with the appointment of CSafe, a global provider of cool chain solutions as an additional cool chain solutions provider. The airline's cool chain premium service specializes in the transport of temperature-sensitive products, including pharmaceuticals. The contract will provide units for SkyCargo's important Dublin to Australia route, which operates through Dubai. Upon completion of a successful test period, SkyCargo will analyze additional lanes for opportunities to further expand the agreement.
SkyCargo offers three Cool Chain solutions, namely Cool Chain Basic, Cool Chain Advanced and Cool Chain Premium, each of which is designed to meet the requirements and specific needs of customers for the shipment of temperature sensitive products from fruit and vegetables to healthcare products and pharmaceuticals. In 2011 to 2012 financial year, SkyCargo carried more than 3700 tonnes of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and healthcare products through its Cool Chain Premium Service.
