LATAM and DSV team up to transport 110 C-Safe containers

Logistics giant DSV and Latin American carrier LATAM Cargo have teamed up to transport 110 RKN C-Safe containers, each filled with medicines, from Amsterdam to Brasilia airport.

The temperature-controlled containers were flown on three Airbus A350 flights and needed to be kept at a temperature of 5ºC, while the interior temperature of the aircraft was maintained between 15ºC and 25ºC.

Cristina Oñate, vice president of marketing and product development at LATAM Cargo, commented: “Our know-how and high standards on transporting pharmaceutical products has enabled us to become experts and be recognised by IATA as the first CEIV Pharma certified carrier in the Americas [in 2017].”

“Through strategic partnerships with renowned players such as DSV, we can ensure our procedures are strictly followed, so that these sensitive products reach final destination in optimal conditions.”

Last month, LATAM introduced a new route to its freighter schedule.

The carrier now operates a weekly service from Miami, US, to Florianopolis in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, using a Boeing 767F aircraft with a 53-tonne capacity.
