Stockholm, June 30th, 2021 - Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transportation of pharmaceuticals, today announced that China Airlines has approved the Envirotainer Releye® RLP for usage on their aircrafts. With this approval, China Airlines can now transport the Releye® RLP on their full network reaching over 115 airports across the world, increasing the capacity to meet demand for temperature-controlled and fully connected ULD solutions.

The Envirotainer Releye® RLP is a LD11-sized unit with a unique air flow technology for maximum temperature stability in the cargo bay. The RLP-size fits 3-euro pallets (or 2-US pallets) and fills a strategic gap between the larger RAP-size and the smaller RKN-size allowing for increase efficiency by mixing and matching sizes based on shipment volume. The Releye® RLP uses rechargeable batteries to power its electric heating and compressor cooling system and can power its system for over 170 hours on a single charge.

With its unique feature set, the Releye® RLP sets a new standard for secure cold chain solutions bringing a temperature-controlled air freight container to market with a new footprint, industry-leading autonomy and fully integrated live monitoring.

“I’m happy to welcome China Airlines as carrier of our latest innovation, the new Envirotainer Releye® RLP container,” says Don Harrison, Head of Global Key Accounts, Airlines at Envirotainer. He continued, “The Releye® RLP is a great addition to China Airlines’ “Pharma 1” service offering, their premium offering for pharmaceutical products requiring the strictest temperature control active containers.”
