United Cargo says it will enhance its TempControl service and expand the options it offers shippers of pharmaceuticals and other life science products by approving the new CSafe RAP active container, making it the first US carrier to do so.
“The CSafe RKN container has been a key component of our TempControl service since 2010,” said Jan Krems, president of United Cargo. “The demand for pharmaceuticals and other health care products grows every year, and customers and patients worldwide are seeking expanded capacity across our TempControl network.
“With the new CSafe RAP container, we can meet this need using the innovative CSafe technology that is
proven by years of impeccable performance and trusted by our customers,” he adds.
The CSafe RAP utilises innovative heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with advanced ThermoCor VIP insulation, to maintain constant payload temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures spanning from -30°C to +54°C – the broadest operating range in the industry.
Its large payload compartment of 6.68 m3 easily accommodates up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets. With an extended battery run time of over 120 hours, the CSafe RAP ensures
temperature integrity and product viability through to destination even on extended
journeys, United says.
“CSafe is very excited to add United Cargo to the ever-expanding list of airlines that have approved our new CSafe RAP temperature-controlled container,” states Jeff Pepperworth, CEO of CSafe Global. “The combination of United Cargo’s expansive TempControl network and the superior performance of the CSafe RAP container offers lifescience companies a powerful and reliable solution to move temperature-sensitive
healthcare products to patients across the globe.”
Many of the same leasing options currently available for the CSafe RKN are available for the new CSafe RAP container. TempControl customers may lease the new CSafe RAP container directly from CSafe Global or through United Cargo.
