Envirotainer opens RAP e2 station in Toronto

Envirotainer is increasing its RAP e2 network in the Americas after adding a ninth station in Toronto, Canada to meet rising demand.

The move is part of the company’s strategy to enhance its heating/cooling capabilities to meet the increasing demand for secure shipments of pharmaceuticals requiring temperature control.

Head of sales Americas, Brian Cooper said: “The Canadian market is growing for us. Adding Toronto to the growing list of RAP e2 stations boosts our ability to support our Partners with a secure and cost-efficient solution.”

He added: “We have conducted more than 22,000 real life pharmaceutical shipments with our RAP e2 so it is a truly proven and robust solution, especially well-suited for markets like Canada where there are great differences in temperature during the year.”

Recognising the need for secure temperature controlled airfreight solutions, Envirotainer has been expanding its sales offering in the Americas over the past decade, investing in both service capabilities and an agile network model.

Envirotainer strategic account manager,Karen Harbour said: “This is an exciting time and a much thought out plan in supporting our customers who ship to and from Canada. It made logical sense to open an RAP e2 station in Canada to support this much needed capacity for our customers shipping temperature controlled pharmaceuticals.”

The Toronto station is the fifth RAP e2 station Envirotainer has opened in the Americas in the last 15 months. The other  stations are located in New York, Chicago, Indianapolis, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, San Juan, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
