Delta Cargo to offer CSafe pharma ULDs

Delta Cargo has introduced the CSafe RAP container to its cold-chain pharma programme. 
The CSafe RAP container utilises heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with  insulation, to maintain constant temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures ranging from -30°C to +54°C.
It can accommodate up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets and the container has a claimed extended battery run time of more than 120 hours.
Delta vice president, cargo, Shawn Cole, said: "The introduction of the CSafe RAP container is a win for our customers who can now choose from the most technologically advanced containers to safely transport sensitive pharma freight.
“Alongside our joint venture partners, Air France-KLM Cargo and Virgin Atlantic Cargo, we can now offer our customers tailored Pharma options across our broad trans-Atlantic network.”
Delta received IATA’s CEIV Certification last year for the Atlanta warehouse and headquarters. To date, Delta has 50 Pharma approved stations around the globe with seven CEIV approved facilities in Europe and one in Asia, through partners airlines and handlers.
