The Turkish freight carrier and DoKaSch Temperature Solutions have inked a Master Rental Agreement, guaranteeing the constant supply of DoKaSch managed Opticooler containers whenever and wherever needed by TK Cargo. This way, the Istanbul-based carrier has constant access to a ULD fleet built for safeguarding the air transport of temperature-critical items of +3 to +30 degrees centigrade – depending on the product.
Commencing immediately, DoKaSch will supply its Opticooler containers for freight carrier Turkish Cargo, adding another well-known name in aviation to its customers. Enthuses Andreas Seitz,
Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions: “Turkish Airlines operates an extremely large global network which means that our Opticoolers are now available to many more clients that need
the supply of reliable temperature-controlled air freight.”
Only the best is good enough, TK Cargo
The Frankfurt-based ULD provider’s Opticooler boxes are regarded being one of the safest and reliable containers for transporting temperature-sensitive products such as vaccines and other pharmaceuticals by air. Regular users of the specialist’s transport units offered to the market are Air France-KLM, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Lufthansa Cargo, Qatar Cargo, and Portuguese carrier TAP.
Now, TK Cargo decided to join the growing club of Opticooler users, benefitting from the electric air-conditioned box, that keeps pharmaceuticals exactly within their temperature range during transports.
“As one of the leading airlines of the world, we provide our cargo clients with the best quality services to transport high-value pharma products. So the Opticooler is one of the natural choices and the Master Rental Agreement confirms that we have all the necessary procedures in place,” said Fatih Cigal, Turkish Cargo's Senior Vice President for Marketing.
Customers will benefit
With Turkish Cargo soon moving from Ataturk Airport to the new airport near the Black Sea “our clients will benefit from spacious and state-of-the-art cargo facilities and will provide a safe hub for the transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals all over the world,” Mr Cigal emphasizes.
TK Cargo operates 23 freighters and utilizes the lower decks of the carrier’s 333 passenger aircraft. Thanks to its fast-growing network and fleet the freight unit of Turkish Airlines aims to be among the top five global cargo carriers by 2023.
