DAYTON, Ohio, June 16 CSafe, LLC, www.csafellc.com, manufacturer of the AcuTemp® RKN active temperature controlled cargo container, and Cathay Pacific, www.cathaypacific.com, one of the world's top ten international providers of air cargo services, have signed a master lease agreement for CSafe's active temperature controlled containers.
The agreement enhances the product offerings provided by Cathay Pacific's PHARMA LIFT service in meeting the needs of healthcare and pharmaceutical customers that require strict temperature control of their products during transport. The FAA and EASA approved AcuTemp RKN offers the superior performance needed for shipping products with temperature requirements between +4 degrees Celsius to + 25 degrees Celsius.
"We have had much success with the use of the AcuTemp RKN and with it, have been able to offer our customers satisfied performance benefits of the unit," said Jack Lo, Cargo Product and Marketing Manager of Cathay Pacific. "The heating and cooling capability of this unit, plus its ability to operate in extreme ambient conditions without the use of dry ice has been a welcome addition to our worldwide PHARMA LIFT product offering," he said.
"Cathay Pacific offers their customers a strong global network of wide body aircraft and shipping lanes, and we are extremely pleased to have them as a CSafe airline partner," stated Brian Kohr, General Manager of CSafe. "Their success with our unit has shown that they are very qualified to handle the most important temperature controlled products," he added.
The superior performance of the CSafe AcuTemp RKN can be attributed to the thermal capabilities of ThermoCor® insulation which provides extended operating efficiencies as well as the unit's proprietary air movement, heating, and cooling systems that allow the AcuTemp RKN to maintain a consistent user-selected payload set-point across ambient temperatures as extreme as -30 degrees C up to +49 degrees C. The operating efficiency of the unit allows for a full load of product inside the container without the need for secondary packaging. This makes the AcuTemp RKN a cost effective solution compared to dry ice and other passive solutions.
