Envirotainer opened up a logistics network and more than doubled the number of available one-way (network) lease options for its e-technology solutions, the RKN e1 and the RAP e2, on March 31.
The cold chain solutions provider’s customers now can choose from twice as many one-way trade lanes, utilising Envirotainer’s full network of more than 50 stations globally, to help deliver medicines for the people in need.
In addition to alleviating some of the logistical challenges of finding space for the return of the units, doubling the number of one-way lease options also has a positive impact on CO2 emissions.
“Envirotainer currently offers the world’s largest fleet of temperature-controlled containers capable of shipping more than 140,000 pallets of temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals every year. During the recent COVID-19 pandemic we’ve stepped up to help our customers when other solution providers have failed them”, explains Michael Berg, CEO, Envirotainer. He continues, “Looking ahead, we believe that the challenges for air freight will persist for months to come. We have worked hard to find this logistical solution that allows us to expand our one-way offering to allow for more cold-chain stakeholders to be able to lease a safe and efficient solution without having to worry about getting the container back after the pharmaceuticals have been delivered.”
