Lufthansa Cargo clears the new CSafe RAP container for departure

Lufthansa Cargo is the latest carrier to approve the CSafe RAP temperature-controlled container to transport pharmaceuticals.

The carrier has approved the CSafe RAP for transport on their extensive network of airlines, serving over 300 destinations in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Lufthansa Cargo senior director of industry development & product management, Thorsten Braun said: “To me it represents a typical win-win situation. With the addition of the CSafe RAP we are further expanding our portfolio of active cool containers, which is second to none, while intensifying our existing relationship with CSafe.

“In combination with our extensive global network, we are offering one of the leading cool containers to our customers.”

CSafe Global chief executive officer, Jeff Pepperworth said: “We’re excited to add Lufthansa Cargo to our expansive network of airline partners approved to fly the CSafe RAP.

“We are honored to deepen our relationship with Lufthansa Cargo and strengthen our promise to protect what matters most to pharmaceutical customers so that patients can receive what matters most to them.”

By utilizing CSafe’s proprietary ThermoCor VIP insulation together with an innovative cooling and heating system, the CSafe RAP precisely maintains a defined payload temperature set-point throughout product transport, even in the most extreme ambient conditions (-30°C to +54°C). This is the broadest operating range in the industry.
