Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transportation of pharmaceuticals, announced that the first commercial shipment using the new Releye® RAP container has been completed. The consignment was handled by Swiss WorldCargo, one of the leading carriers of intensive care pharmaceuticals.
he shipment started in Basel, Switzerland, landing at JFK in the US and comprised of three Releye® RAP units and two RAP e2 units. The shipper was a global acting Swiss pharmaceutical company, and the transportation was successful and went according to plan.
Thanks to the integrated live monitoring, the shipment was checked in every detail through the whole journey. Furthermore, with Envirotainer’s new Control Tower service, a global team of operators stood ready to respond within minutes to any critical event, if one should have occurred. The Envirotainer Control Tower service is included in all Releye® leases.
And, since the Releye® RAP is based on exactly the same platform and technology as the Releye® RLP together with the comprehensive data made available, the qualification for the pharmaceutical company customer required marginal effort and went exceptionally fast.
The Releye® RAP sets a new benchmark for temperature-controlled, five-pallet solutions. The largest of the new generation of Releye® containers, the RAP is the only one of its type in the world, combining big, optimized capacity with superior features.
Designed to meet the strictest requirements in pharmaceutical air freight, the integrated live monitoring enables a unique insight into product condition, location, and progress of the shipment.
The Releye® RAP is the second in a family of advanced temperature-controlled air freight containers Envirotainer is developing. It joins the three-pallet Releye® RLP launched in 2021. The foundation of the Releye® platform are the five pillars: Control, Monitoring, Autonomy, Value, and Sustainability.
