Envirotainer presents RAP for the future – part of the Releye series
Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for the air transport of pharmaceuticals, today launched its latest innovation, the Releye RAP. This is complemented by the new Control Tower managed service.
The Releye RAP sets a new benchmark for temperature controlled 5-paddle solutions. The largest of the new generation Releye containers, the RAP is the only one of its kind in the world, combining high capacity with superior features.
Designed to meet the most stringent pharmaceutical airfreight requirements, integrated live monitoring provides unique insight into product status, location and shipment progress.
With its increased efficiency and capacity, it achieves exceptional CO2 reductions per shipment and is the future solution for safe cold chain shipments. All monitored and maintained with the new Control Tower service.
The Releye RAP is the second in a family of advanced temperature controlled air cargo containers that Envirotainer is developing. It joins the 3-pallet Releye RLP launched in 2021. The foundations of the Releye platform are the five pillars: Control, Monitoring, Autonomy, Value and Sustainability.
More value, more durability
Because the Releye RAP offers the greatest internal volume for temperature-controlled airfreight shipments, it makes more efficient use of available airfreight capacity. This offers the best total landed cost and achieves the lowest CO2 footprint in the air cargo industry.
Quite simply, it offers the most cargo space per unit of fuel and has the smallest carbon footprint of any solution on the market. This is thanks to its low weight, large cargo space and outstanding reliability.
The beauty of the Releye RAP is that it is based on the exact same platform and technology as the Releye RLP. With this and the comprehensive data made available, the further qualification of a Releye unit is the easiest in the cold chain industry and requires marginal effort from our customers and partners.
The Envirotainer Control Tower service offers a global team of operators to track every movement of a shipment, ready to respond within minutes to any critical event. The Envirotainer Control Tower service is included with all Releye leases.
Swiss WorldCargo, the leading carrier of critical care pharmaceuticals, is the first European carrier to approve the Releye® RAP container for its operations and add it to its portfolio.
“We truly appreciate our close partnership with Envirotainer and are proud to be the first European carrier to approve the new Envirotainer Releye RAP and welcome it into our product portfolio,” said Lorenzo Stoll, Head of Cargo at Swiss International Air. Lines. “The Releye RAP sets a new benchmark for temperature-controlled 5-pallet solutions, it combines the latest technologies and achieves exceptional CO2 reductions per shipment. This is fully aligned with our own focus on sustainable operations and the continuous reduction of our carbon footprint.”
“When we launched the new Releye RLP in May 2021, we raised the bar for cold chain transport to new heights of control, monitoring and autonomy. Now, with the launch of Releye RAP, we are raising raises the bar another notch in terms of value and durability,” says Peter Gisel-Ekdahl, CEO of Envirotainer.
“The Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing. Airfreight capacity is limited and there is a huge demand for intercontinental shipments. In this context, organizations that qualify the Releye RAP will secure access to the most cost-effective and most sustainable for temperature-controlled air cargo,” says Fredrik Linnér, Business Development Manager at Envirotainer.
“The Releye series offers unique visibility, and with the Control Tower service, we take visibility to another level. Based on the most sophisticated live monitoring technology in the market and our 24/7/365 customer service , we monitor all Releye shipments, offering our customers a helping hand within 15 minutes of any potential event, to ensure the safe delivery of pharmaceuticals,” says Linus Wollentz, Head of Digital Services at Envirotainer.
