Cathay Pacific Cargo
The new container offers greater load flexibility and the latest cool-chain technology and is available in India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka
INDIA: Cathay Pacific Cargo has added to its extensive cool-chain options for customers by being the first Asian air-cargo carrier to offer the Envirotainer Releye® RLP for carriage on its aircraft fleet. The Envirotainer Releye® RLP is available across four ports in South Asia, including Mumbai, Hyderabad, Dhaka, and Colombo.
The Envirotainer Releye® RLP is an LD11-sized unit with a unique air flow technology for maximum temperature stability, and has been designed to meet shippers’ requests for greater load flexibility. The RLP-size container fits three Euro pallets (or two-US pallets) and fills a strategic gap between the larger RAP and smaller RKN-size containers to enable mixing and matching of pallet sizes based on shipment volume.
The unit uses rechargeable batteries to power its electric heating and compressor cooling system, which can be controlled from an external panel. A single battery charge will power the system for more than 170 hours. The Releye® RLP also offers fully integrated live monitoring.
“Cathay Pacific Cargo is elated to be the first Asian carrier to approve and offer the new Envirotainer Releye® RLP container unit to our customers,” said Rajesh Menon, Regional Cargo Head, South Asia, Middle East and Africa (SAMEA). “Continuing to fulfill our core values, the introduction of this unique container unit in the key markets, especially in the SAMEA region is a step in the right direction, to provide our customers with an array of specialized offerings. With the latest developments, at both Cathay Pacific and Envirotainer ends, not only will be able to provide our customers with the latest innovations but also help our industry move forward.”
Don Harrison, Head of Global Key Accounts, Airlines at Envirotainer added: “Cathay Pacific Cargo is a long-term partner to Envirotainer, and I’m thrilled that it is the quickest airline in Asia-Pacific to qualify our latest innovation, the new Releye® RLP container. Cathay Pacific Cargo’s extensive network and Pharma LIFT product will continue to be an asset to pharma shippers globally; now with the inclusion of the Releye® RLP its impact will be even greater.”
