China Airlines to launch temperature-controlled airfreight
China Airlines and Envirotainer announced Tuesday that they will together launch temperature-controlled airfreight services primarily for the health care industry.
In order to move into the cool chain market, China Airlines will introduce airfreight services for high-value pharmaceutical products that need constant and monitored temperature control. With a strong presence in China and Taiwan, China Airlines can offer cargo transfer services across many Asian air transport hubs and connect Asia with Europe and the U.S.
In the initial phase, China Airlines will target eight airports for its temperature-controlled airfreight business: Taipei, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Tokyo, Osaka and Singapore.
China Airlines and Envirotainer have signed a global partner MLA, which includes co-marketing and joint business collaboration. Under the agreement, the airline will participate in Envirotainer's training program on handling all types of temperature-controlled containers.
