Dokasch gains FAA approval for Opticooler container

By Damian Brett

Dokasch Temperature Solutions has received the approval for its temperature controlled Opticooler RAP container from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Dokasch said that following approval it will be able to co-operate with US airlines and it will also pave the way for Canadian Airlines.

In turn, the company can “further expand its area of operations within these networks to and from the US, Canada and within the Americas”.

Anticipating this FAA approval, the company founded its California based subsidiary Dokasch Americas Inc in 2018.

Douglas Wettergren, chief executive of Dokasch Americas, said: “The FAA approval for our Opticooler is an important step in expanding our international network and strengthening our position. Since the US is an important export market for pharmaceuticals, we are focusing time and energy with key clients.

“We have come a long way in 2019 and now that we are able to cooperate with USA flag carriers and some wet lease freighter operators, our customers can truly benefit. FAA approval is the recognition a lot of our American customers have been waiting for.”

A fleet of Opticoolers is already available at more than 25 international US airports.
