Increasing cold chain capabilities in USA
American Airlines Cargo has expanded its solution for transporting temperature-controlled shipments to its entire mainline fleet. This expansion follows a number of tests and trials conducted in partnership with two experienced services providers.
Through the use of CSafe Global’s packaging and temperature loggers provided by Cargosense, the airline proved that all of its aircraft offer suitable environments for passive temperature-sensitive shipments.
The successful trials allow American to nearly double its capacity for handling "ExpediteTC" active and passive solutions and extend the carrier’s cold-chain solution network to 30 new stations, including in-demand cities like Cincinnati, Memphis and Pittsburgh. (ah)
