In 2021, the Envirotainer fleet moved 600m doses. The following year this grew to 744m doses (272 000 pallets).
The reported increase in business follows the cold chain solutions specialist’s expansion of its production site in Rosersberg, just north of Stockholm, in November 2022. The investment will allow Envirotainer to grow its current fleet of 7,500 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certified containers by another 1,300 in 2023.
The Envirotainer fleet covers more than 2,000 pharmaceutical trade lanes in over 100 countries and 300 airports.
With its Releye range, which Envirotainer said includes the biggest thermally-controlled container available, the company aims to ensure minimal or zero temperature deviations on the shipments and virtually zero product loss. Releye also offers integrated live monitoring, which enables a unique insight into product condition, location and progress of the shipment.
The company also supports cryogenic -70°C dry ice shipping for products such as clinical trials, vaccines, diagnostics biospecimen with its CryoSure product line.
