www.ses.ieDoKaSch Temperature Solutions achieved technical approvals for its “Opticooler” active containers with Japan Airlines (JAL) and All Nippon Airways (ANA). In addition to a dedicated Japanese subsidiary and a new service station in Tokyo-Narita, the approval of both Japanese major carriers strengthens DoKaSch Temperature Solutions’ network in the Asia-Pacific region.

The technical approvals allow the Opticooler to be used in the cargo holds of the two airlines’ fleets. Forwarders and pharmaceutical manufacturers in Japan and worldwide will have increasing leasing options for temperature-controlled packaging solutions and can utilise the international route networks of both carriers. JAL’s and ANA’s schedules connect Japan with Europe, North America, Southeast Asia as well as Australia. The option of using Opticoolers on these routes is opening important accesses to the Japanese and worldwide pharma sector. At Narita International Airport for example, both carriers operate a hub where half of Japan’s total pharmaceutical trade is being handled. Freight forwarders also profit from the efficient and capable range of wide body aircrafts of both carriers, which allows the Opticoolers to always be deployed with optimal and reliable flying platforms.

The technical approval follows the opening of a new service station of DoKaSch in 2021 at Tokyo-Narita Airport. The new depot is ready to meet any demand for RKN and RAP Opticooler at any time and immediately. The German company has also established the dedicated Japanese subsidiary DoKaSch Temperature Solutions K.K. with an office in Tokyo in 2021. In addition to its high availability, the Opticooler is an extremely reliable, temperature-controlled packaging-solution. Without depending on dry ice or other refrigerants, the active container can both cool and heat thanks to a self-supporting electrical power generator and full climate control. They maintain the desired temperature level at all times and regardless of external climatic and infrastructural conditions. This makes them the ideal solution for the safe transport of highly sensitive and valuable pharmaceutical products that must always be protected from temperature fluctuations.

“The demand for temperature-sensitive goods is increasing in Japan as well as in whole Asia.  In addition to reliability and safety, fast availability at any quantity is also crucial, to step up with this trend. Combined with our new Japanese service station directly at the gateway of our new partners Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways, we can excellently provide these key capabilities to our customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Kazuyoshi Kakizawa, Head of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions K.K.
