DoKaSch and Japan Airlines sign Master Rental Agreement


DoKaSch Temperature Solutions and Japan Airlines (JAL) have signed a new Master Rental Agreement (MRA) to use the temperature-controlled Opticooler as part of the cool service of the major Japanese carrier. The MRA opens up new possibilities to use the active Opticooler as a reliable and capable supply chain solution for pharmaceutical shipments to and from Asia. Therefore, DoKaSch and JAL meet the country’s growing needs for vaccine and pharmaceutical transportation in a safe and reliable way.

At Narita International Airport, Japan Airlines operates a hub at an airport that handles about 60% of Japan’s total pharmaceutical import trade. Furthermore, JAL’s intercontinental networks connect Japan with major hubs in Europe, North America, China, Southeast Asia as well as Australia. Furthermore, the new Master Rental Agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions enables Japan Airlines to strengthen its cool chain capacities for its safe and fast pharma service, providing forwarders and pharma producers with highly reliable packaging solutions. This makes Japan Airlines an important partner for the global supply of pharmaceutical products.

The Opticooler is a temperature-controlled packaging solution and comes in two sizes: the RAP container holds up to five euro-pallets, while the smaller RKN version provides space for one euro-pallet. Both active containers are battery-powered, can easily be adapted to any transport scenario, and enable customers to always keep the desired temperature level, for example, between two and eight degrees at any given time. Furthermore, since the Opticoolers only require a power socket to be charged, they can easily be used as temporary storage when the necessary cool infrastructure is lacking. This makes them the ideal solution for safely transporting highly sensitive pharmaceutical products, which must be protected from temperature deviations at all times.

Kiyoaki Yasui, Team leader of the Cold Chain Logistics Team of Japan Airlines, stresses the importance of the agreement: “We have always focused on a strong cool chain within our network because the supply of lifesaving medicines is absolutely crucial. Thanks to direct connections to some of the most important hubs in Narita and Haneda, we can provide highly reliable and quick transport to a wide variety of destinations. The Opticoolers provided by DoKaSch Temperature Solutions are fulfilling our high standards and will support our extensive cool chain network in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.”

Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, adds: “The new Master Rental Agreement with Japan Airlines is an important addition to our partner network and significantly increases the availability of our Opticoolers in the Asia-Pacific region. Since especially Japan is an important producer of pharmaceutical products, reliable cool chain capacities in the greater region are of great importance. By providing our Opticoolers for these routes, we can support the supply with lifesaving medicines in the region as well as worldwide.”
