United Cargo has opened a new temperature-controlled facility at Chicago O’hare International Airport.
The new facility features two cooling chambers each measuring 3,200 sq ft as well as 2,000 sq ft of ball deck with 21 temperature-controlled storage positions.
There are also two new bi-level storage racks within the new coolers offering 16 new temperature-controlled storage positions.
“Last week, we cut the ribbon on our new, state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled storage facility at O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in Chicago,” the company said in a LinkedIn update. “Featuring two new temperature-controlled chambers and more than 10,000 total sq ft of storage space.”
The company has been investing in its pharma capabilities this year.
In April, the airline completed the technical approval of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions’ Opticooler RKN solution for use on its temperature-controlled airfreight services.
The airline already uses DoKaSch-TS’s Opticooler RAP option, which holds up to four CP 1 pallets (or five euro-pallets). The smaller RKN container can take a single CP 1 pallet, or any standard US pallet measuring less than 48” x 48”.
