IAG Cargo has become the latest airline to approve the use of Envirotainer’s Releye RLP and RAP ULDs to transport pharma products on flights.

The cargo division said that the recently launched containers would be utilised on its Constant Climate cold chain service.

John Cheetham, chief commercial officer, IAG Cargo said: “Temperature-controlled air cargo is crucial for getting life-saving medicines from one corner of the world to another. IAG Cargo’s dedicated teams are always looking at ways to enhance our Constant Climate service and so we are delighted to be able to offer our customers Envirotainer’s Releye containers.

“Envirotainer, is one of our long-term partners whose solution offers our customers a more effective mechanism to transport pharmaceuticals as well as complete visibility from start to finish.”

The containers are monitored through a control tower service as standard.

The units use rechargeable batteries, with a single battery charge able to power the system for over 170 hours.

They also offer live monitoring for product condition, location, temperature, humidity, battery levels, door openings, if cargo is loaded or not, and the progress of shipments.

Envirotainer launched the RAP version of its Releye temperature-controlled container earlier this year.
