DoKaSch Temperature Solutions’ temperature-sensitive air cargo product, Opticooler, is now available for rental in the US across more than 20 air cargo carriers.

A significant number of Opticoolers RAP (4 CP1-pallets) and RKN (1 CP1-pallet) are now available for immediate use in the US. German provider of climate-controlled air cargo containers, DoKaSch, has integrated delivery areas at the East Coast and Midwest from Boston to Minneapolis and D.C. to St. Louis, as well as on the West Coast from Los Angeles to Sacramento, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, commented on the development at the 15th Cold Chain Global Forum this week. “We are very proud to offer pharmaceutical shippers in the USA an easy and hassle-free access to our Opticoolers for a global distribution of their high value and high risk cargo. In combination with our high availability and 100% on-time order fulfilment, the ‘Made in Germany’ Opticooler adds great value to the reliability of the global cool chain.”

Within the free delivery areas across the US, the Opticooler will be delivered from DoKaSch hubs to any location for a small handling fee. DoKaSch also runs a free delivery area in Europe and units can be hired outside of the free delivery zones, worldwide, directly from a growing number of airlines.

Equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self-regulating temperature control, the Opticooler maintains a consistent internal temperature, anywhere in the storage area. Temperature ranges of 2 - 8°C or 15 - 25°C, for example, can be maintained, regardless of ambient temperature, which varies from -30°C during a Canadian winter and +50°C during a middle-eastern summer.
