As part of its continued network expansion, Envirotainer has opened a new Service Station in Duesseldorf to ensure the quality and availability of its temperature-controlled air cargo containers for customers shipping pharmaceutical and healthcare products from the region.

The Duesseldorf operation joins a network of more than 50 Envirotainer service stations at major airports around the world. The station services will be provided by ComPass Transport Systeme GmbH.

Niklas Lönnkvist, Head of Healthcare Sales, EMEA at Envirotainer, said: “The Nordrhein-Westfalen region is a strong exporter of high value temperature sensitive pharmaceutical product and devices and with Duesseldorf Airport undergoing expansion, we are very excited about establishing our 23rd European station in this important region to deliver world class cold chain solutions to our customers. Our customers can as from Monday 20th January 2014 pick up our containers at Duesseldorf Airport and chose to uplift from DUS or any nearby airport in order to reach final destination in the shortest time possible.”

By investing in this new facility in Duesseldorf, Envirotainer will be able to provide greater and quicker access to the Active Cold Chain. Envirotainer is constantly evaluating its service network to ensure it meets the needs of its customers and the strict regulatory standards for the transportation of life science products.
