Delta Cargo gains approval to use Envirotainer RAP e2 containers

Delta Cargo has been given approval to use Envirotainer RAP e2 containers on domestic and international widebody aircraft services.

The airlines says the container is ideal for shipments requiring strict temperature control between +0C and +20C, and follows the news that Delta Cargo has been awarded International Air Transport Association Center of Excellence for Independent Validators Pharma logistics certification.

The approval of the e2s enhances Delta’s pharma product offering, which is available in Pharma 1 locations around the world, and the active container expands flight options beyond those using the Envirotainer RAP t2, as it does not require dry ice as a coolant, while also offering significantly more capacity for goods than the Envirotainer RKN e1.

Delta Cargo aircraft can also carry CSafe, the entire Envirotainer active container line including the e1 and e2, and va-q-tec passive containers.
