Qatar Airways Cargo announces the approval of Envirotainer’s latest Releye RLP container and the airline now offers 16 temperature-controlled container leasing options for life science and health care products to maintain a secure and seamless cool chain.
It has been already offering customers Envirotainer’s RAP and RKN active pharma containers since 2014.
In June itself, Emirates SkyCargo and Cathay Pacific Cargo also approved the new container for moving pharmaceutical goods.
Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways said, “Releye RLP offers live monitoring and intelligent cargo protection to transport our customer’s critical life science and health care shipments at the required temperature across our global network. Such an innovation is the need of the hour, especially in these uncertain times of the pandemic.”
Fredrik Linnér, chief business development officer at Envirotainer said, “With the new Releye RLP, Qatar Airways Cargo can offer their customers the latest active fully connected solution to protect the integrity and quality of air freight medicine products throughout the supply chain.”
The Releye RLP sets a new standard for secure cold chain solutions – maintaining the customers’ pharma cargo longer, without the need of recharging and is enough to cover transit times and delays, if any. With live monitoring, the airline’s customers will be able to track and monitor the product condition, location, temperature, humidity, battery levels, door openings, if their cargo is loaded or not and the progress of their shipments. Customised alert notifications can also be set up, offering full visibility to customers for proactive and reactive measures.
Its unique airflow technology provides maximum temperature stability in the cargo bay. These containers also deliver up to a 90 percent reduction in CO2 emissions, in perfect alignment with the airline’s sustainability goals.
