Emirates SkyCargo and DuPont Safety & Construction (DuPont) have marked the tenth anniversary of their partnership for cold chain solutions in the air cargo industry on January 30, 2019.
The celebration of the partnership took place at Emirates Towers in Dubai.
Emirates SkyCargo and DuPont began their partnership a decade earlier when they released the ‘Emirates SkyCargo White Cover’ – the first pallet cover made with Tyvek® that revolutionized cold chain protection of temperature-sensitive products in air transit.
The Emirates SkyCargo White Cover provided a cost-effective solution for issues in the cold chain industry relating to thermal protection, gas permeability, ease-of-use and installation, and recyclability.
This made Emirates SkyCargo an industry pioneer in the use of specialized and lightweight cargo covers for protection against external heat and weather fluctuations
In 2016, Emirates SkyCargo introduced ‘White Cover Advanced’ for protecting temperature-sensitive shipments – in particular, pharmaceuticals – during transport. This was followed up with the launch of ‘White Cover Xtreme’ in August 2017.
“DuPont is extremely proud of our partnership with Emirates,” said Rose Lee, President, DuPont Safety & Construction. “We have been on our partnership journey for 10 years together, creating innovative solutions that are leading the cold chain space.”
