LATAM Cargo extends pharma options

Latin American carrier LATAM Cargo has signed a deal with CSafe Global, a provider of active and passive temperature-controlled packaging solutions, to offer more options to customers shipping temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals.

“CSafe containers offer cutting-edge technology that will continue to strengthen our Pharma Active product,” explains product development senior manager for LATAM Cargo, Rodolfo Marré. “We understand that minimal deviation from the defined temperature ranges can greatly affect the quality of the products and that is why we are constantly evaluating new options for our clients.”

Pharma Active is a specialised product focused in the transportation of high value medicines and vaccines using specialised active containers (electric or dry iced based) to maintain the desired temperature range.

CSafe says its RAP and RKN active temperature-controlled containers offer unmatched operational capabilities with the industry’s longest battery run times and broadest ambient temperature ranges of -30°C to +54°C for the CSafe RAP and -30°C to +49°C for the CSafe RKN.

“CSafe’s innovative system design combines advanced compressor-driven cooling technologies with superior VIP insulation to regulate payload temperatures precisely where they need to be for up to four US pallets of pharmaceutical product, per container. These active containers have approvals to fly on both the upper and lower decks of aircraft and are a welcomed addition to LATAM’s offering.”

LATAM Cargo achieved CEIV Pharma certification in 2017, the first airline in the American continent to do so.
