United approves CSafe’s RAP temperature-controlled container

09 / 10 / 2018

United Cargo has approved the CSafe RAP temperature-controlled container for the shipping of pharmaceuticals and other life science commodities across its network under its specialised TempControl product.

CSafe’s RAP container makes use of heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies, along with effective insulation, to maintain constant temperatures within the ULD even at extreme ambient temperatures ranging from -30°C to +54°C – said to be the broadest operating range in the industry.

The container has a capacity of 6.68 cubic metres, thereby easily accommodating up to four standard US pallets or five standard Euro pallets. It has a battery run time of more than 120 hours.

“The CSafe RKN container has been a key component of our TempControl service since 2010,” recalled Jan Krems, president of United Cargo.

“The demand for pharmaceuticals and other health care products grows every year, and customers and patients worldwide are seeking expanded capacity across our TempControl network,” he pointed out.

“With the new CSafe RAP container, we can meet this need using the innovative CSafe technology that is proven by years of impeccable performance and trusted by our customers.”

Jeff Pepperworth, chief executive of CSafe Global, added: “The combination of United Cargo’s expansive TempControl network and the superior performance of the CSafe RAP container offers life science companies a powerful and reliable solution to move temperature-sensitive healthcare products to patients across the globe.”

TempControl customers can lease the new CSafe RAP container directly from CSafe Global or through United Cargo.

CSafe RAP approval is the latest move made  by United Cargo in the development of its TempControl product.

In September, the cargo carrier confirmed that it was to enhance its TempControl and LifeGuard services by utilising the evo Cold Chain 2.0 system developed by Savsu Technologies (LifeGuard provides the carrier’s highest-priority same-day service for critically important medical shipments).
