Emirates unveils new White Cover

EMIRATES SkyCargo has teamed up with a leading US research institute to develop a ground breaking new product for the shipment of temperature-sensitive cargo, as part of its commitment to provide shippers with the highest standard of service.

It is a low-cost, lightweight, breathable and reusable protective ‘White Cover’ designed to shield these shipments from heat during door-to-door transport.

With its hub in the hot climes of the Middle East, Emirates SkyCargo has always had to pay special attention to its temperature-sensitive traffic.

This is the first time this unique type of protection, which completely encloses the shipment, has been used for the airfreight of temperature-sensitive goods,” said Therese Puetz, manager cargo business development & projects.

“It works on the principle of solar radiation and offers significant thermal protection. It also allows cooling of the shipment during transport and cold storage operations,” said Puetz.
