Etihad Cargo approves CSafe RAP container

Comment on this article

CSafe Global’s temperature-controlled containers will be introduced across all Etihad Cargo’s flights for large pharmaceutical shipments.

CSafe RAP is the latest high-performing container from the provider of active, passive parcel and cell and gene temperature-controlled container solutions. It uses innovative heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with advanced VIP insulation, to maintain constant payload temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures from -30°C to +54°C – the broadest operating range in the industry.

Its large payload compartment of 6.68 square metres easily accommodates up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets, while the container's extended battery run time of more than 120 hours ensures integrity even on extended journeys.

Following rigorous testing, Etihad Cargo has now approved the use of the CSafe RAP on its aircraft to offer customers continued assurance of compliance and temperature control along with the largest payload capacity in the industry. CSafe RAP is to be deployed across the carrier’s global fleet of wide-body and freighter aircraft.

“As an IATA CEIV Pharma certified carrier, we take the transportation and handling of pharmaceutical shipments very seriously, adhering to the strictest processes with the very best in class equipment that ensures the best quality handling in the quickest time,” said Fabrice Panza, Manager Global Cool Chain Solutions at Etihad Cargo. “The addition of the CSafe RAP further enhances our customer offering by completing our active cool chain portfolio. Through this partnership we are now able to provide the largest and most high-tech solutions of active containers worldwide. We are confident as market demands become stronger for vaccines and clinical trials that we are ready to offer quality along with enough capacity to our customers.”

The airline also recently reinforced its pharmaceutical logistics expertise with the launch of PharmaLife, a specialised pharma and healthcare product. As a long-term partner of CSafe Global, Etihad Cargo provides customers with a number of closed cool-chain solutions under its PharmaLife product, including the CSafe RAP and CSafe RKN.
