DHL teams up with Envirotainer

DHL has partnered up with Envirotainer, to outsource its temperature controlled air cargo container needs. Envirotainer will provide specialised temperature-sensitive ULDs for all DHL Global Forwarding facilities.

DHL wants to expand its capability to transport chilled and temperature-sensitive products, such as pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, for the life science and healthcare industry.

As part of the agreement DHL Global Forwarding will be incorporating Envirotainer’s comprehensive training and audit program across its network, to reach ‘Qualified Envirotainer Provider’ (QEP) status – an industry-wide recognised standard.

Robert Krautheim, President of Life Science and Healthcare at DHL Global Forwarding, commented: “This global relationship with Envirotainer supports our initiative to establish dedicated competency centers and regional hubs in the cold chain market which support our customers’ requirements. Aligning our DHL programs with Envirotainer’s ‘Qualified Envirotainer Provider’ program means that we can offer the highest levels of quality to our customers, worldwide.”

Thomas Persson, CEO of Envirotainer added: “As a major player in the life science and healthcare industry, DHL Global Forwarding is an ideal partner for Envirotainer. DHL’s commitment to, and investment in, developing new customized solutions matches our approach to the life science industry. We are dedicated to improving the quality of products and services that we offer our customers. Strengthening our relationship with DHL is an important milestone for us.”
