October 11, 2017: Saudia Cargo and the German ULD provider DoKaSch Temperature Solutions has entered into an agreement to provide RKN and RAP Opticoolers for temperature-sensitive goods on Saudia Cargo flights. The RKN and RAP Opticoolers of DoKaSch, the provider of climate-controlled solutions for air cargo, will be used in the Saudia Cargo flights.

“We are very pleased to offer our customers a highly reliable packaging solution to transport temperature-sensitive shipments with DoKaSch Opticoolers. Especially pharmaceuticals must be kept within strict temperature tolerances throughout the entire supply chain, regardless of the ambient conditions, which are a challenge in particular in our region,” said Adel Elshazly of Saudia Cargo.

“We are pleased that Saudia Cargo will be joining our global airline network. Saudia Cargo is a very important partner in many aspects. Not only do they have one of the world’s most modern aircraft fleets, but Jeddah is a very important trading hub for us as well. Now our containers are accessible much easier in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.” added Andreas Seitz, managing director, DoKaSch Temperature Solutions.

The Opticooler is especially designed for extreme climatic conditions. It keeps the cargo very well within a temperature range of 2° to 8°Celsius or 15° to 25°Celsius even when it comes to high temperatures up to 50°C, which are quite common in Saudi Arabia and the surrounding regions. The Opticooler is the most adequate and reliable packaging solution for temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals.
