Envirotainer has announced that the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved its RKN e1 air cargo container.

The company has already secured approvals from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and other country specific regulatory bodies.

With the latest approval, airlines can now conduct their own engineering assessment for the RKN e1 container on-board their aircraft.

"In order to ensure availability for our partners following this FAA approval, we are investing heavily in our fleet expansion."

Envirotainer CEO Simon Angeldorff said: "With this FAA approval, the availability of the RKN e1 container will be further enhanced.

"This marks an important step in Envirotainer’s strive to provide the same offering and logistics model on a global basis."

Mandatory placards will be installed on the containers before being released into the market and this process is expected to be finalised in the next few months.

Envirotainer expects all acceptance processes to be in place within two to six months.

Angeldorff added: "In order to ensure availability for our partners following this FAA approval, we are investing heavily in our fleet expansion.

"Our brand new, state-of-the-art R&D and production facility outside Stockholm, Sweden, is enabling us to further support this expansion with the production of RKN e1 containers currently running at a doubled speed in comparison to that of previous years."

Envirotainer is a provider of active temperature-controlled containers for air cargo on a rent-it-when-you-need-it-basis, in an open-platform global network.
