American Airlines Cargo has expanded its temperature-controlled operations so they can be used across the entire mainline fleet.
A combination of using of CSafe Global’s specially designed packaging and temperature loggers provided by CargoSense allows American to be sure it meets any strict requirements.
Following the successful trials, American has nearly doubled its capacity for handling ExpediteTC solutions while it now has 30 new stations in its cold-chain solution network including in in-demand cities like Cincinnati, Memphis and Pittsburgh.
American Airlines Cargo vice president of commercial Roger Samways said: “When it comes to cold chain shipments, reliability is crucial for our customers.
“By expanding our offering of temperature-critical shipping on all mainline flights, we are able to provide our customers with access to more than 180 markets, marking the largest cold-chain network in our history.”
CSafe Global COO Tom Weir added: “It was a privilege to work with American to conduct these trials and leverage our innovative thermal shipping solution technologies to ensure even more temperature-critical shipments can travel effectively.
“Many sensitive, often life-saving goods travel the world thanks to effective cold-chain networks, and we are proud to play a part in that alongside American Airlines.”
Samways added the increased capacity for handling temperature-controlled goods comes as the vaccines, which require refrigeration, are rolled out across the world in the fight against Covid-19.
