    DELTA CARGO APPROVED TO CARRY ENVIROTAINER RAP E2 Alert

    08/01/2017

    Delta Cargo is pleased to announce its approval for the carriage of the Envirotainer RAP e2 on our mainline aircraft effective August 1, 2017.  This container is ideal for shipments requiring strict temperature control between +0°C and +20°C.

    The approval of the Envirotainer RAP e2 enhances Delta’s Pharma product offering, which is available in nearly 49 locations around the world. The active container expands flight options beyond those using the Envirotainer RAP t2, as it does not require dry ice as a coolant. It also provides significantly more capacity for goods than the Envirotainer RKN e1.

    Please visit the Variation Pharma page or contact your account manager to learn more about leasing this container and the enhancements we’ve implemented to our Variation Pharma program, including CEIV Certification.

    Thank you for choosing Delta Cargo for your Pharma shipping needs.
