DoKaSch @ IQPC in Philadelphia Managing Director Andreas Seitz and US-CEO Douglas Wettergren available for interviews

Philadelphia (USA) / Frankfurt (Germany), 24 September 2018 – DoKaSch Temperature Solutions is showcasing its world-class active container solutions at the Cold Chain Global Forum in the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia this week.

Its Opticoolers are widely regarded as the most reliable climate-controlled air cargo containers. Since 2018, senior industry expert Douglas Wettergren is CEO of DoKaSch America. A fleet of Opticooler containers is available at more than 25 international US airports to serve the needs of the pharmaceutical industry in the United States. Wettergren and Managing Director Andreas Seitz will be available for interviews and background information on industry trends, upcoming technologies and best practices.

The master agreement will allow Etihad Cargo to expand its TempCheck cool chain service offering for temperature controlled pharmaceuticals, as its customers will be able to lease the Opticooler, the “flying warehouse”, from Etihad Cargo.

The Opticooler, a German made, electric airconditioned container, can keep pharmaceuticals exactly within their temperature range, regardless of a tropical summer or arctic winter. Due to redundant components, the Opticooler has a very high fail-safety and is considered to be the most reliable among other products. Just like in a normal warehouse, a constant temperature can be maintained if the Opticooler is occasionally connected to the power grid.

“Our focus in 2018 is “closer customer engagement” and, by adding additional solutions for the most critical, time- and temperature-sensitive shipments, we are moving in the right direction to cater to our customers’ needs, hand in hand with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions,” said Justin Carr, Vice President Etihad Cargo.

Due to the master agreement with DoKaSch, Etihad Cargo is making sure that the pharmaceuticals it carries are handled and remain in the stringent condition and temperature range set by the manufacturers.

“We offer a specially designed product using the latest equipment, processes and SOPs to keep the cargo’s integrity and make sure it arrives in the quickest possible time adhering to the highest compliance guidelines,” Carr added.

Apart from its cargo hub in Abu Dhabi, the agreement between DoKaSch Temperature Solutions and Etihad Cargo makes the Opticooler being available at Etihad Cargo´s whole network across more than 90 destinations in over 50 countries. Etihad Cargo has been awarded the title “Cargo Airline of the Year” at World Air Cargo 2017.
