Emirates SkyCargo introduces new temperature protection solution

Temperature sensitive cargo like even pharmaceuticals which are more susceptible to increase in heat now can have a very safe transit with the while cover solution  White Cover Xtreme developed by Emirates SkyCargo in collaboration with DuPont.

 The two companies worked extensively on ground trials for White Cover Xtreme and roll out for customers will begin in late August 2017.

White Cover Xtreme is the third level development following the earlier solutions White Cover and White Cover Advanced.

The collaboration between Emirates SkyCargo and DuPont on the new White Cover Xtreme is part of an existing agreement between the two companies to develop new temperature protection solutions, in particular thermal covers, for the air cargo industry. The agreement was renewed for a further period of two years until 2019 during the Air Cargo Europe event in Munich in May this year. The agreement allows the players to continue developing cost-effective innovative end to end protection solutions for temperature sensitive cargo keeping in mind the needs of the end customers.

From June to August 2017, Emirates SkyCargo has also been offering complimentary White Covers to all customers who have temperature sensitive perishables consignments transiting through Dubai to better protect cargo from spoilage during summer. On an average over 30,000 tonnes of perishables from different parts of the world transit through Dubai every month on Emirates SkyCargo.

Emirates SkyCargo operates a modern fleet of 259 wide-bodied aircraft including 14 freighters- 13 Boeing 777-Fs and one B747-400ERF. The carrier boasts state of the art cool chain facilities at its Emirates SkyCentral cargo hubs at Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central including over 25,000 square metres of dedicated temperature controlled storage space and dedicated reefer trucks operating 24/7 between Dubai World Central and Dubai International airport.
