Continental expands climate service

Continental Airlines Cargo is planning to develop its temperature-controlled services in partnership with Envirotainer.

Continental Airlines Cargo is planning to develop its temperature-controlled services in partnership with Envirotainer.

The two companies recently signed an agreement to increase the usage of Envirotainer's temperature-controlled airfreight containers as part of Continental Airline Cargo's Climate Secure service.

"Our new agreement with Envirotainer perfectly demonstrates Continental Cargo's commitment to expand as the only US airline with a comprehensive temperature-controlled shipping program," said Mark Mohr, manager of product development, Continental Airlines Cargo. "As a direct result of our enhanced relationship with Envirotainer, we will soon be seeing even greater advances in the areas of quality and new product development."

As part of its new agreement, the airline will also participate in Envirotainer's training program and aims to become a QEP-CEP accredited airline.

"The implementation of the training sessions is planned to start in the next few months," said Mohr.

"The program was developed in consultation with the pharmaceutical industry to define those service providers that were capable of using the Envirotainer solution to ensure the integrity of their temperature sensitive shipments. Continental will commence with the program in Newark and Houston followed by locations in Western Europe."
