June 23, 2021: Qatar Airways Cargo announces the approval of Envirotainer’s latest innovation – The Releye® RLP container. 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 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.
Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways said, “We are committed to provide our customers the best solutions. 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.”
Fredrik Linnér, Chief Business Development Officer at Envirotainer said, “We are happy to welcome Qatar Airways Cargo as a carrier of our latest innovation, the Envirotainer Releye® RLP container. 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 air flow 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.
With considerable investments in quality handling, infrastructure, reefer trucks and facilities like the airside Climate Control Centre at the Doha hub, people and procedures at each of its 85+ pharma stations, the cargo carrier provides high operating standards for the transportation of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products globally. The airline is committed to ensuring the enhancement of service quality and constant innovation of the QR Pharma service for the benefit of its customers.
