Emirates SkyCargo uses new-generation Envirotainer

Emirates SkyCargo has transported a new generation of containers across its network for the first time.

The two new "RAP e2" Envirotainers, which can heat and cool temperature-sensitive cargo, carried pharmaceutical products on a commercial flight from Hamburg, Germany via Emirates‘ hub in Dubai to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

The Envirotainer RAP e2 is a heating and cooling container with active temperature control, which enables the door-to-door transport of mainly temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals. Temperatures can be regulated between 0°C and 25°C.

This brand new container concept only uses light composite materials, serving to reduce the weight and emissions during transport.

Around 25% of the 1.8 million tonnes of cargo carried by Emirates SkyCargo in the 2010-2011 financial year was temperature sensitive.
