By capitalising on both organisations’ extensive network capabilities, along with Envirotainer’s Releye container, CO2 shipment emissions can be reduced by up to 90% compared to other solutions, the partners claimed.

The Releye RLP and RLP solutions also ensure precise temperature control throughout the entire transportation process.
