Since 2020, Delta Cargo has been effectively utilising DoKaSch´s RAP container. Adding the Opticooler RKN provides an additional innovative solution for more compact freight. It enhances Delta Cargo’s ability to provide reliable, advanced packaging options for temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products.

Delta Cargo’s global pharma network now spans 46 pharma-approved stations, with recent expansions including Chicago (ORD), Philadelphia (PHL) and Raleigh (RDU). Delta Cargo was the first U.S. passenger airline to receive IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma Logistics Certification, and all Delta Cargo Pharma stations adhere to strict Good Distribution Practice (GDP) standards, ensuring the highest level of quality and compliance in pharmaceutical transportation.

“The integration of the Opticooler RKN into our fleet represents our ongoing commitment to serving the complex needs of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries,” said Alison Ricker, Managing Director of Global Sales and Product Development at Delta Cargo.

“We continue to invest in our facilities, operations and staff, steadfastly upholding the most rigorous industry standards. Our commitment ensures customers have ample choices and world-class reliability for their pharmaceutical shipments.”

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, commented on the significance of the partnership: “Our collaboration with Delta Cargo, a key player in the US market, highlights the reliability and quality of our Opticooler RKN. This partnership expands our presence in the USA and strengthens our global network.”

This partnership with Delta Cargo is particularly significant given the dynamics of the U.S. pharmaceutical market, which is a major component of the global industry. The sector is witnessing substantial growth, especially in biosimilars, and is marked by continuous research and development of new pharmaceutical products. These trends indicate the escalating need for specialised, temperature-controlled logistics solutions, a demand that the Opticooler RKN is well-equipped to meet.

The Opticooler, available in RKN and RAP versions, offers versatile solutions for pharmaceutical logistics. These electrically powered, fully air-conditioned units can maintain precise temperatures without relying on dry ice and are equipped with batteries for continuous operation. This makes them ideal for safely transporting and temporarily storing valuable and temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals, addressing a critical need in the pharmaceutical logistics industry.
