Latest addition to its unit load devices for pharma transport aligns with carrier's sustainability goals, company says
Qatar Airways Cargo has approved Envirotainer’s Releye RLP container for its fleet of aircraft. With the newest addition to its range of temperature-controlled containers, the airline now offers 16 temperature-controlled container leasing options for life science and healthcare products to help maintain the cold chain.
The Releye RLP features air flow technology that offers temperature stability in the cargo bay, and can reportedly deliver up to a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions, a statistic that is up to par with what the airline is looking for in terms of sustainability. The container reportedly preserves the customers’ pharma cargo for longer time frames, without the need to recharge.
“We are committed to provide our customers the best solutions," says Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways' chief officer cargo. "A seamless cool chain is paramount to maintain the efficacy of pharmaceuticals, and we are pleased to offer our customers a technologically advanced container: Releye RLP with live monitoring and intelligent cargo protection to transport their 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.”
