Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transportation of pharmaceuticals, today 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.
The 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.
