Duesseldorf operation joins a network of more than 50 service stations around the world

As part of its continued network expansion, cold chain services provider Envirotainer has opened a new service station in Duesseldorf, Germany. The aim is to provide greater and quicker access to its temperature-controlled air cargo containers for shipping pharmaceutical and healthcare products from the region.

The Duesseldorf operation joins a network of more than 50 Envirotainer service stations, where customers can pick up and drop off their containers at major airports around the world. The station services will be provided by ComPass Transport Systeme, a member of the Dutch VCK group, which operates a logistics centre close to Duesseldorf Airport. The new facility offers 11,500m2 of logistics and handling capabilities with high security standards including a bonded warehouse of 4,000m2.

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.'
