Emirates SkyCargo launches Emirates SkyFresh
Emirates SkyCargo has launched Emirates SkyFresh - a suite of solutions that help maintain the freshness of perishables and fresh consumables during transportation.
Emirates SkyFresh will feature three levels - Emirates SkyFresh, Emirates SkyFresh Breathe and Emirates SkyFresh Active - offering varied levels of cool chain protection for different kinds of perishables. The basic solution, Emirates SkyFresh, is geared towards temperature tolerant fruits and vegetables and will offer quick ramp transportation and thermal protection through Emirates SkyCargo’s White Cover blanket. Emirates SkyFresh Breathe provides protection for temperature sensitive perishables such as fresh cut flowers, ready to sell cut fruits and vegetables and fresh fish. Features will include prioritised ground handling as well as the use of the Emirates SkyFresh Ventilated Cool Dolly. Emirates SkyFresh Active will offer the highest protection for perishables that cannot withstand any temperature deviation using specialised temperature controlled containers during transportation.
In 2016, Emirate SkyCargo has transported close to 400,000 tonnes of perishables across its global network of over 150 destinations. This included products as diverse as salmon from Norway, strawberries from California, flowers from Ecuador, meat from Australia, mangoes from the Indian subcontinent, wine and cheese from France. Emirates SkyCargo is an important facilitator of global trade in perishables and helps make an important contribution to local exports.
