Envirotainer to provide cold-chain containers for Continental Cargo
Continental Airlines Cargo said Tuesday it has signed a new global contract with Envirotainer to expand its temperature-controlled product line.
The new agreement will see the increased use of Envirotainer's active temperature-controlled air cargo containers for customers using Continental Airlines Cargo's ClimateSecure service. The airline said the containers provide an 'alternative to traditional cooling means such as foam, gel packs or insulating blankets, which add expense to shipments and waste space.'
'Our new agreement with Envirotainer demonstrates Continental Cargo's commitment to expand our position as the only U.S. airline with a comprehensive temperature-controlled shipping program,' said Mark Mohr, Continental Cargo manager of product development and specialty sales, in a statement.
ClimateSecure provides an unbroken door-to-door cool chain for up to 72 hours or longer when dry ice and batteries are replenished in transit. The service is designed for customers shipping high-value and sensitive goods including pharmaceuticals, electronics, cosmetics, fine art and perishables.
