Qatar Airways Cargo receives Envirotainer quality accreditation

Qatar Airways Cargo has received the Qualified Envirotainer Provider Training and Quality Programme (QEP) accreditation at five of its destinations: Amsterdam, Basel, Paris, Chicago, and at its Doha hub.
The QEP programme recognises air cargo carriers that operate Envirotainer containers in compliance with Good Distribution Practice (GDP) for pharmaceutical products.
Qatar Airways’ acting chief officer cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said: “Qatar Airways Cargo has been managing Envirotainers since 2015 to transport pharmaceuticals. We are proud to receive the QEP accreditation that acknowledges our high standards in handling active pharma containers throughout our network, thereby maintaining the efficacy of pharmaceutical products.”
Bourji Mourad, global head of partner management at Envirotainer, said: “Our longstanding relationship with Qatar Airways Cargo continues to evolve and grow. This much-deserved QEP Accreditation is another positive step forward, ensuring that key industry standards are met regarding the correct and safe handling of all types of containers and technologies offered by Envirotainer.”
Qatar Airways Cargo’s pharma network spans 75 destinations around the world and more stations throughout the carrier’s network will be included in the QEP accreditation programme in the coming year, the Middle East airline confirmed.
The airline’s customers can now choose from a range of active containers such as Envirotainer, CSafe, DoKaSch and va-Q-tec to transport pharma products across its global network.
In early 2017, Qatar Airways Cargo opened its airside Climate Control Centre for in-transit temperature-sensitive cargo.
