American Airlines expands chilled services

DFW Airport, TX, US: American Airlines Cargo has launched a new temperature controlled service. ExpediteTC Passive uses cool rooms, expedited handling processes and high-visibility monitoring to ensure cargo is handled within desired temperature ranges says the company.

The service augments American’s ExpediteTC Active service, which uses dry ice and battery-powered containers to regulate temperature levels, regardless of ambient conditions.

Dave Brooks, president of American Airlines Cargo, said: “Our new ExpediteTC Passive cold-chain service provides our customers with another important option for moving time- and temperature-sensitive cargo.”
