United Cargo the first North American carrier to approve Releye pharma container

By Damian Brett

United Cargo has become the first North American carrier to approve the use of Envirotainer’s recently launched Releye RLP temperature-controlled container.

Following the approval, United Cargo’s portfolio now includes more than 15 leasable container options designed to keep cargo cool or at a controlled room temperature.

Customers can lease the container directly from United.

“This gives our TempControl customers another option to ship critical life-saving pharmaceuticals to any corner of the globe at the desired temperature,” said Manu Jacobs, United Cargo’s director of specialty products.

TheReleye was launched in May and is the first actively controlled container to accommodate three Euro pallets, as well as offering live data monitoring for location, temperature, battery level, and humidity of the cargo inside.
