Panalpina has signed a global Master Lease Agreement with Envirotainer, a leader in the active temperature-controlled air cargo container market, to provide temperature-controlled air cargo containers for its new cold chain management solutions for the healthcare industry.

The two companies have worked together for more than six years in various markets around the world but this is the first time Panalpina and Envirotainer have agreed to a global cooperation. Besides jointly serving the pharmaceutical industry, Panalpina has also agreed to take part in Envirotainer's quality and training programme - Qualified Envirotainer Provider.

Speaking about the new partnership with Envirotainer, Peter Claessens, global head of Industry Vertical Healthcare, said: "Through this closer working relationship, we can offer pharmaceutical customers an integrated door-to-door cold chain in the air and on the ground with our own dedicated capacity and with all the parties involved in the chain under our direct control. Panalpina is managing this process by ensuring customised standard operating procedures that are implemented by all parties in the entire cold chain. Managing our own capacity is thereby an important element."

Martin Peter, vice president of sales of Envirotainer, said: 'Strengthening the partnership with Panalpina is an important step for Envirotainer giving access to new clients and new markets."
