Turkish Cargo approves CSafe RAP pharma container

Turkish Cargo has approved the recently launched CSafe RAP temperature-controlled container for in-flight use across its vast freighter and belly fleet.

The CSafe RAP is the latest innovation which CSafe Global said “offers unmatched operational capabilities” with the industry’s largest RAP payload capacity to ensure successful large-volume shipments of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals across the globe.

CSafe Global vice president for global marketing and partner management, Brad Jennings said: “Turkish Cargo have long been experts when it comes to transporting temperature-sensitive healthcare products globally.

“CEIV accreditation further demonstrates their commitment to providing our mutual life-science customers with precision cold-chain services that have been validated to exceptionally high standards.”

The CSafe RAP active container system leverages the performance and capabilities of the well-established CSafe RKN to remove the operational and environmental challenges encountered with global temperature-controlled shipments.

By utilising CSafe’s proprietary ThermoCor VIP insulation together with a compressor-driven cooling and radiant heating system, the CSafe RAP precisely maintains the user-defined payload temperature set point through payload transport, regardless of ambient conditions.

Turkish Cargo senior vice president of cargo marketing, Fatih Cigal added: “The CSafe RAP will be an excellent addition of active temperature-controlled containers being used for transportation of healthcare products in the Turkish Cargo pharma program.

“With volumes of pharmaceutical shipments growing on a global scale, active temperature-controlled containers for larger cargo payloads are required.

“The CSafe RAP will give Turkish Cargo the ability to continue to provide best-in-class service to our customers around the world, meeting their expectations in terms of volume, cargo integrity and safety, and on time transportation.”

Turkish Cargo continues its strong growth path and above the market average as from January to May it posted an increase of 30 per cent compared to the same period last year, above the 4.3 per cent average.

According to World Air Cargo Market Data it was ranked 8th among WACD’s global top 10 air cargo carriers list as new freighter routes and belly flights via Turkish Airlines drove the traffic rise.
