How China Southern Airlines improved its capabilities of temperature-controlled shipping to Europe


China Southern Airlines has quickly become a strong player for shipments of pharmaceuticals in Europe. To improve its capabilities and product offerings, the company was looking for a partner that could help them develop a premium solution for temperature-controlled shipments. China Southern Airlines has now entered into a partnership with Envirotainer that has provided both extensive training and knowledge. According to Mr Peng SUN, Regional General Manager at China Southern Airlines Europe, the company is now confident to approach pharmaceutical companies on the European market.

China Southern Airlines is one of the largest airlines, with a fleet of over 850 aircraft, servicing 224 cities in over 40 countries globally. The company has the largest cargo capacity in Asia, including all its passenger aircraft belly and cargo fleet with 14 B77F and 2 B747F, serving major cargo markets such as America, Europe, Australia, Japan, and south-east Asia.

Pharmaceutical shipping is relatively new to the company but has evolved very rapidly over the years. China Southern Airlines is CEIV Pharma Certified for both airline operations and operations in Guangzhou, where the company has two cold warehouses to provide high-quality services for its customers.

Improved offerings with active temperature-controlled shipping

Previously, China Southern Airlines has offered temperature-controlled shipping using passive packaging solutions. The company wanted however to expand its offerings to be able to meet the requirements for stricter temperature control and the demands of the growing market of sensitive pharmaceuticals and biologics.

It did not take long for the company to find Envirotainer and conclude that it was a good player to partner with. With active containers from Envirotainer, China Southern Airlines could offer a premium and cost-efficient solution for temperature-controlled shipments. The representatives at Envirotainer were professional, helped develop the new premium service offerings, and could provide extensive training and other services necessary. For Envirotainer, the partnership is an excellent opportunity to extend its network of partners across the globe.
