Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transportation of pharmaceuticals, today announced that China Southern Airlines has approved the Envirotainer Releye® RLP for usage on their fleet of aircrafts. With this approval, China Southern can now transport the Releye® RLP on their extensive network, increasing the capacity to meet ever growing need for temperature-controlled, high-quality and connected ULD solutions.

The Envirotainer Releye® RLP is a LD11-sized unit with a unique air flow technology for maximum temperature stability in the cargo bay. The RLP-size fits 3-euro pallets (or 2-US pallets) and fills a strategic gap between the larger RAP-size and the smaller RKN-size allowing for increase efficiency by mixing and matching sizes based on shipment volume. The Releye® RLP uses rechargeable batteries to power its electric heating and compressor cooling system and can power its system for over 170 hours on a single charge. 

With its unique feature set, the Releye® RLP sets a new standard for secure cold chain solutions bringing a temperature-controlled air freight container to market with a new footprint, industry-leading autonomy and fully integrated live monitoring. 

"We are happy to welcome China Southern Airlines as the latest carrier of our newest innovation, the Envirotainer Releye® RLP container," says Don Harrison, Head of Global Key Accounts, Airlines at Envirotainer. He continued, "We will provide China Southern Airlines with the Releye® RLP container so that they can further broaden their portfolio of high-quality temperature-controlled solutions."

"We are excited to be the first mainland China carrier to approve the Releye® RLP container." Says Charlotte Huang, Deputy Director of Sales Department, China Southern Air Logistics, "The Releye® container sets a new standard for secure cold chain transport at a time when Covid-19 vaccine and other temperature-controlled medicines are being shipped around the world. With its advanced technology in long battery life, track and trace device and environmentally-friendly designs, this groundbreaking container will undeniably promote mutual cooperation between Envirotainer and China Southern Airlines in every shipment of temperature-sensitive pharma."
