If you transport by air temperature-sensitive cargo like food and pharmaceuticals, you know how important it is to guarantee an unbroken cold supply chain. Our certified temperature-controlled containers also known as air cargo refrigerated containers do just that. What’s more, they come in two sizes to meet all your logistical needs: RKN and RAP.
Exceptional insulation materials and optimised airflow that keeps your cargo at the desired temperature for the entire trip, even under extreme conditions.
Why lease when owning your equipment is a much better way to invest your capital? Spend the money you save on other cold chain opportunities.
Avoid the risk of unstable or inaccurate temperature ranges during transport. Each one of our containers is tested extensively to guarantee its performance.

Our cool containers use a combination of dry ice and a TCU to keep your cargo within the desired temperature range until it reaches its final destination.
Next to cooling method and capacity, there are many other things to take into consideration when buying your next cool container. Two elements that are fast becoming an urgent priority in the air cargo world are sustainability and reliability. With this free checklist we'll help you set your priorities and take the right things into consideration.
Take a closer look at our certified cool containers and discover how you can meet industry regulations and your unique logistical needs at the same time.
When Yamato Transport was in need of a new supplier of RKN containers, they quickly reached out to VRR and asked if we could customise the RKN to their explicit requirements. Read how our collaboration led to a future-ready refrigerated delivery service for Yamato and the creation of the removable, rechargeable battery pack for all our customers.
To be honest, we’re not surprised. Our cool containers are worth a closer look.

The RKN cool container (LD3 size) is perhaps the most versatile temperature-controlled ULD on the market.
Vulnerable cargo such as perishable food, flowers, pharmaceuticals and blood plasma need to be maintained at a certain temperature so they’re not compromised as they’re transported around the globe. Ordinary aluminium containers cannot properly protect this type of cargo. Certified temperature-controlled containers can guarantee an unbroken cold supply chain.
VRR supplies only active cool containers.
An active cool container has a system that monitors and controls a cooling system to maintain automatically the container’s content at a certain temperature level. The system comprises sensors, a control unit, ventilators and an air duct. VRR sells two different kinds of active cool containers: RKN and RAP.
A passive cool container prevents fluctuations in content’s temperature, but it does not actively control the temperature. VRR does not sell passive cool containers.
When using a Dry Ice Container, you will need to use the right amount of dry ice to make sure your products are kept cool at all times. You can easily calculate the amount of dry ice you'll need for a perfectly cooled transport with out Dry Ice Calculator.
PCM stands for Phase Change Materials. PCMs are substances that absorb and release thermal energy during the process of melting and freezing, so they’re ideal for maintaining a regulated temperature. PCM applications include cool containers, energy-efficient fridges and freezers, high-performance sports and outdoor gear, thermal energy storage systems for a building’s cooling and heating system.
