Envirotainer has launched a new service that records crucial shipment data for customers transporting temperature- sensitive healthcare and life science products.

RAPID (Rapid Access to Product Integrity Data) is available to users of Envirotainer’s RKN e1 compressor cooling and electrical heating air cargo container, and is compatible with the most frequently used data logger software from Elpro and Sensitech.

While Elpro is already live with its latest "RAPID-able" software release of ElproLog, Sensitech’s new software release, which will be fully compatible with RAPID, is scheduled to be available in summer 2007.

The system monitors ambient temperature as well as air temperature inside the container. Furthermore, the system logs battery level as well as opening and closing of container doors.

The shipper activates and deactivates the system at origin and destination. Shipment data is logged during transportation and downloaded on arrival via an IR reader to a user-friendly format for further analysis.

The RAPID system is designed to comply with high security standards. Customer-specific codes and data encryption allows full confidentiality and integrity.
