Posted 8 February 2018 · Add Comment

DoKaSch Temperature has provided its Opticooler to Ethiopian Airlines.

“We are very glad to offer our customers a highly reliable packaging solution to transport temperature-sensitive shipments with DoKaSch’s Opticooler,” said Fitsum Abady, MD Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services. “In this fast growing and strongly competitive market, it is important that we offer our customers the best packaging solution for their sensitive cargo.”

The international hub in Addis Ababa is especially focused on the cargo handling of temperature-sensitive goods. Since February, Ethiopian Airlines offers DoKaSch’s active container, the Opticooler, to fly these goods through the hub of the Airline into Africa.

The Opticooler is equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self-regulating temperature control, so that the temperature of sensitive goods, in particular pharmaceuticals such as insulin and vaccines, stay well within range at any point in the storage area.

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, said: “Ethiopian Airlines is the most successful African carrier and their hub in Addis Ababa develops very positive regarding the cargo handlings. Therefore, we are very pleased, that we could expand our African network by signing the master agreement with Ethiopian Airlines.”
