DoKaSch provides Opticooler for Turkish Airlines

Frankfurt (Germany) / Istanbul (Turkey) - Offering service to 124 countries and being one of the fastest-growing air cargo brands around the world, Turkish Airlines has signed a Master Rental Agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, the provider of climate-controlled solutions for air cargo based in Frankfurt, Germany.

Starting in February 2019, DoKaSch supplies its Opticooler for Turkish Cargo, the largest carrier in the world by number of passenger destinations and a member of the Star Alliance network. “Turkish Airlines serves more destinations than any other airline. This means that our Opticoolers are now available to many more clients that need reliable temperature-controlled air freight,” said Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions. Its Opticoolers are regarded as one of the safest containers for transporting temperature-sensitive products such as vaccines and other pharmaceuticals by air.

With Turkish Airlines joining the ranks of cooperating partners, DoKaSch is now able to expand its global network even further, especially in the Middle East and Israel in particular with many wide body frequencies. All of the region’s leading airlines are now partner of DoKaSch and provide their clients Opticooler airline leases. Opticoolers can now be transported not only as belly-freight in passenger planes of Turkish Airlines, but also on its growing network of all-cargo freighters.

“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.

With the move of Turkish Cargo to the new Istanbul Airport in 2019, Turkish Cargo’s 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

The Opticooler, a German-made, electric air-conditioned container, can keep pharmaceuticals exactly within their temperature range, regardless of a tropical summer or arctic winter. The Opticooler has a very high fail-safety and is considered to be the most reliable solution for pharmaceutical transportation. Just like in a normal warehouse, a constant temperature can be maintained if the Opticooler is occasionally connected to the power grid.
