DuPont™ Tyvek® Air Cargo Covers Now Available for Air Canada Cargo Shipments

Air Canada Cargo is pleased to introduce DuPont™ Tyvek® Air Cargo Covers, now offered as an optional value-added feature for AC Fresh and AC Pharmacair shipments.

“Over the last couple of years we have been testing the DuPont™ Tyvek® Air Cargo Covers on perishable and pharmaceutical shipments. Given its success and acceptance in the market place, we are pleased to provide our customers with this value added offering”, said Vito Cerone, Director, Marketing and Cargo Sales, Americas

DuPont™ Tyvek® Air Cargo Covers are specifically engineered to address the threat of cold chain breaks during air transit - when your temperature sensitive products are at the greatest risk for temperature excursions. Validated in a wide variety of applications worldwide, Tyvek® air cargo covers provide:

  • Proven protection against temperature excursions caused by extreme solar radiation.
  • Breathable barrier allowing excess moisture to escape
  • Protection from  physical hazards such as rain, dust, and insects
  • Easy installation

“We are proud of our long-standing collaboration with Air Canada Cargo to protect perishable and temperature sensitive products through cold chain.  Air Canada Cargo is deeply committed to offer the best cold chain solutions to their customers and was one of the earliest adopters of Tyvek® Air Cargo Covers.  We are pleased that Air Canada Cargo is extending this service broadly across their network and look forward to collaborating on future cold chain protection innovations for customers shipping perishable and pharmaceutical products,” said Diego Boeri, DuPont™ Tyvek® Global Business Director
