Turkish Cargo’s cold chain logistics are prepared specifically in order to protect the contents and prevent them from deterioration. At Turkish Cargo, all transportation of medical supplies are executed in accordance with IATA regulations. We offer our customers various services including temperature-controlled active and passive systems. With our active cooling system containers, we can have cold-chain transportation in airplanes, including loading and unloading areas.
To prevent our cargoes from being exposed to often changing temperatures during flights, we use Envirotainer active temperature-controlled containers. In containers, which contain highly sensitive cargoes such as medical supplies, vaccine, insülin and cancer drugs, we manage to maintain the desired temperatures even during long-distance flights. With our data entry log, we also report to our customers about the changes in temperature of their shipments during the whole transportation process. Thanks to our agreements we’ve made with international container suppliers, we can realize shipments between -20°C and +25°C at the demanded circumstance and capacity.
Active container demands of our customers are assessed by our expert teams. On request, our containers are installed with a temperature setting by our certified experts and delivered to our clients ready to be loaded to the plane. After the acceptance of the container, it is carried into the active container storage area at our facility. The temperature and battery charge is monitored in designated periods according to instructions given in Active Container Regulations. The temperature and battery charge of the container is constantly monitored until its delivery to the recipient. To this end, we’ll continue to carry out related training and certification programs to equip our employees and business partners with the knowledge and competence on this project. Simultaneously, we’re trying to eliminate our technical and infrastructure shortcomings, thus reaching a level where we can offer services complying with our quality standards, and medicine and active container transport regulations.
As Turkish Cargo, we’ll continue to provide technology-driven logistics solutions to individual customers and major corporations. We’ll work to make Istanbul one of the biggest players in the air cargo trade between East and West, benefitting from its strategic location at the center of world trade routes.
