Comprising a steel trailer and an aluminium insulated container, the Cool Dolly acts as a mobile storage unit from Air Cargo Terminal to the Aircraft. They provide an unbroken cold chain to all the perishable shipments of temperatures of +2⁰C to +8⁰C and +15⁰C to +25⁰C and can handle around 7-tons of cargo in a single trip.

Cool Dolly is a crucial value addition to the unbroken cold chain at Hyderabad International Airport for life saving and temperature sensitive cargo.
