Envirotainer RKN e1 Container

Designed for the Pharmaceutical Industry

The RKN e1 is a one pallet size container, based on the second-generation active temperature control system and utilizes compressor cooling and electric heating technology, to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry for smaller shipments. The RKN e1 container maintains product temperatures in the +2 to +8 °C range, controlled room temperature (+15 to +25 °C) range or at any chosen set temperature between ±0 to +25 °C. 

Ensuring Seamless Handling Throughout your Supply Chain  

The RKN e1 is a certified air cargo ULD (Unit Load Device). A ULD can be carried on board the most common types of wide body aircrafts. Moreover, ULD's often get prioritized cargo status, are tracked in airlines fleet management and have a quick transfer process. These factors improve the fleet management, traceability and priority onboard of ULD's, compared to non-ULD, reducing the risk of shipment delays. 

Open Platform 

Envirotainer is an open platform service provider – our products are made available worldwide through a range of partners in the airline and forwarding industry. Contact Envirotainer to test the RKN e1 container.
