Ushering in a new era of sustainable, smart and cost effective temperature-controlled pharma airfreight solutions 

Presenting the industry's most innovative active ULD

The RKN ULD is certified by EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority)

State-of-the-art temperature-controlled ULD

Secure and Traceable
  • Ensure full traceability and data integrity

  • Real-time connectivity

  • Preventive management

  • Built-in intelligence

Light and Reliable
  • Tare weight of 388 kg makes our ULDs 40% lighter than the counterparts

  • Redundant temperature control system

  • Solar panels for unlimited power autonomy

  • Saves 45% CO2 emissions

  • Emits 70 % less ozone-depleting substances

  • Real-time IoT and solar panels induce a more efficient cold chain


Our Mission

Reinventing the RKN from scratch, our team has created an innovative cold chain solution that is customer-centric, reliable, sustainable, and cost-effective,

Ease of operation and less required maintenance were the two major criteria we imposed upon ourselves during the development of this solution.  Four years of R&D resulted in the Osprey (RKN ULD) - a highly innovative solution designed to simplify the cold chain.
