Can We Releye On New Envirotainer?
Releye Container

  Everybody loves something new. Out comes a product with all the bells and whistles as the the flaks and p/r types open up their thesaurus looking for new superlatives.
  So here we separate the wheat from the chaff for an unbiased view from a guy that knows more about cans and where to kick them than anybody else.
  Bob Rogers at ULD Care, simply put, is the go to guy here as he leans in about that new Envirotainer Releye.
  “The ‘type’ of unit . . . eg an RLP which is essentially the base dimension ( 60.4” by 125”) of typical LD6 container, or 2 LD3 containers . . . the equivalent ‘dry’ unit (ALF or LD6) are very popular with a great number of airlines, as they provide a significant cargo capacity while not requiring the use of a pallet space . . . this base size unit also assists with weight and balance as it enables the positioning of a heavier cargo unit at the rear of the aft hold which is typically not set up for pallets.
  “As far as the temperature control capabilities, I can only be impressed at the continuing innovation in this area.
  “It’s not so many years ago that a typical such unit relied on some blocks of dry ice to keep things cool—now the tech is amazing.
  “The only point I would make is that the folks on the ground handling these increasingly sophisticated pieces of equipment need to raise their game when it comes to understanding the need for proper handling practices, both on and off airport.”
