The airline now benefits from the reliable active cooling container for its pharmaceutical shipments to and from Israel.

The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in Israel's internationally networked economy and some of the world’s largest manufacturers are based in the country. As the Israel relies primarily on sea and air freight solutions, Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport is the central hub for international trade. Thanks to the highly reliable and temperature-controlled Opticooler solution, El Al is able to safely transport temperature-sensitive products to and from its headquarters at Ben Gurion Airport in the belly of its passenger fleet as well as a dedicated cargo aircraft. El Al serves 42 destinations; these include New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Bangkok, Johannesburg, and the most important European cities. In addition, El Al has agreements with leading airlines as well as freight forwarding companies on various continents.

Moshe Popovich, Pharma Manager at EL AL Cargo Division, said: “Pharmaceuticals are the fastest growing market segment in the air cargo industry. However, temperature fluctuations during transport can pose a serious threat to the integrity of these sensitive products. As Israel's national airline with an extensive global network, an efficient and reliable cold chain service is therefore crucial for us. The Master Rental Agreement with DoKaSch Temperature Solutions supports our high standards in this area and enables us to offer our customers stable and high-quality transportation for their pharmaceutical shipments."
