Emirates SkyCargo launches protection solution for temperature-sensitive cargo

Posted 19 April 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo, the cargo division of Emirates Airline, has launched a next-generation version of its innovative protection product for valuable temperature-sensitive cargo, such as pharmaceutical products.

Called White Cover Advanced, it utilises DuPont’s patented Tyvek material made of high density polyethylene to form a tough protective barrier against varying external temperatures and direct sunlight. The special material is water resistant to prevent moisture damage while at the same time breathable, thereby reducing condensation and dryness. It is also environmentally friendly and is 100% recyclable.

While the White Cover is used in the carrier’s cool chain solutions for perishables, such as vegetables and fresh fruits, the White Cover Advanced offers additional protection for packaged pharmaceutical shipments in Controlled Room Temperature (CRT) range and in insulated packaging. 

Weighing no more than three kilograms for Emirates’ largest passenger aircraft pallet, the special sheet completely encloses the shipment and allows for cooling during transportation and cold storage. Application is also very efficient, taking two people no more than eight minutes to wrap a pallet. 

“The pharmaceutical industry moves products worth over US$ 1 trillion annually. Temperature changes during transportation can pose a serious threat to the integrity of these sensitive products. They must be kept within different control room temperature (CRT) bands in accordance with the revised EU Good Distribution Practice.  The White Cover Advanced, with its silver-coating technology, provides a reliable and affordable means of protecting these products from temperature spikes during air transportation,” said Henrik Ambak, senior vice president, Emirates’ Cargo Operations Worldwide.
