DoKaSch Temperature Solutions has gained a new customer for its Opticooler product in Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services.

Fitsum Abady, MD Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services, acknowledged the importance of offering a suitable solution for sensitive cargo in such a fast-growing and competitive market. “We are very glad to offer our customers a highly reliable packaging solution to transport temperature-sensitive shipments with DoKaSch’s Opticooler,” he said.

The recent inauguration of the largest state-of-the-art cargo terminal at Addis Ababa the airport, the main hub of Ethiopian Airlines, will also enhance the handling of temperature-sensitive cargo shipments such as pharmaceuticals. The cargo terminal is fitted with latest technology and compartmentalised temperature-controlled storage facilities.

As of February, Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services has been offering DoKaSch’s active container, the Opticooler, to fly just such temperature-sensitive goods through the hub of the airline to and from Africa.

The Opticooler is equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a

self-regulating temperature control. This ensures that the temperature of sensitive goods, in particular medicines and vaccines, stay well within range at all points in the storage


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