Envirotainer and CHEP Aerospace Solutions strengthen their partnership
Envirotainer, the world leader in secure cold chain solutions, and CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the leading global provider of Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair services, have extended their successful partnership for a further three years.
CHEP provides repair, handling, transportation and storage services for Envirotainer’s fleet of containers across 21 global service centres, just part of the world’s largest repair network. These service centres are approved to issue certificates of release to service both under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It is a dual certification that has been made possible by the strong working partnership between CHEP and Envirotainer, which will be further expanded in the future to support Envirotainer’s growing fleet, and enable them to serve even more customers at key airports.
Envirotainer CEO, Simon Angeldorff, said: “Envirotainer’s partnership with CHEP helps us meet the needs of our customers in terms of reliability and availability, which are key factors to success in the pharmaceutical supply chain. CHEP’s repair excellence, IT capabilities and global network play an important part in enabling us to strengthen our leading position in the market. Our companies also share the same business values and invest in developing and offering innovative solutions, such as container tracking devices, to our respective customers. We look forward to continuing our partnership with CHEP.”
CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Dr. Ludwig Bertsch, said: “Envirotainer’s containers belong to the high-end part of the ULD sector and require specific repair expertise at consistent high quality which CHEP ensures by investing in continuous training and process development at all our repair centres. Our partnership with Envirotainer provides benefits for both companies and goes beyond the scope of a typical cooperation, for which the significant support given by Envirotainer to achieve the dual FAA and EASA certification of our repair stations is a great example. We are pleased to have extended our agreement with Envirotainer and look forward to a successful future together.”
