Dnata takes the heat off in Australia with cool dollies

By Damian Brett

Ground handler dnata has added four cool dollies to its Australian cargo fleet to protect heat sensitive shipments as they are transferred between the aircraft and handling facility.

Dnata will operate two cool dollies each at Sydney Airport (SYD) and Melbourne Airport (MEL).

Dirk Goovaerts, dnata’s regional chief executive for Asia Pacific, said: “We are thrilled to be the first cargo handler in Australia to launch advanced cool dollies in our operations. Our latest investment underlines our commitment to ensuring reliable and safe end-to-end transportation of pharmaceutical products across the supply chain. We stay focussed on providing continual improvements that enhance the safety and security of our customers’ pharma shipments.”

The handler said that ramp transportation is one of the most vulnerable stages for temperature-sensitive cargo like pharmaceuticals.

Providing temperature-controlled storage from -25°C up to +25°C, the specialised containers mitigate risk of temperature deviations and contamination.

They have a closed structure with alarms on opening and closing, as well as alerts if temperatures fluctuate above acceptable ranges.
