Envirotainer has increased its RAP e2 network in the US to eight destinations by adding Atlanta to the network.
The RAP e2 is designed to maintain temperatures between 0 and 25C in nearly any ambient condition along shipping routes globally, and the batteries can last for up to 100 hours.
Key features of the RAP e2 include fully redundant electric heating and compressor cooling systems, rechargeable batteries that can be charged at standard AC power connection points, and enhanced air circulation inside the container to ensure a low temperature gradient within the cargo space.
Atlanta is the 8th RAP e2 station in the USA after New York, Chicago, Indianapolis, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, San Juan and Los Angeles.
Envirotainer head of operations – Americas, Ernest Murphy says: “We have added four RAP e2 stations in the region in one year, in essence doubling our capacity. The new station in Atlanta also serves as our regional competence centre for RAP e2’s which is great for our US-based customers and partners.”
Envirotainer has also reached an important milestone with the RAP e2, with the 1,000th coming off the production line in Stockholm, Sweden.
Head of sales – Americas, Brian Cooper says: “The demand for a secure and cost-efficient solution is continuously high. In addition to opening the new station in Atlanta, yesterday we celebrated building our 1,000th RAP e2.
We have conducted more than 22,000 real life pharmaceutical shipments with our RAP e2. It is a truly proven and robust solution for any shipment that requires temperature control.”
