Temperature-controlled pre- and on-carriage

Due to our own fleet of temperature-regulated trucks as well as support from our carefully selected and qualified subcontractors, Kuehne + Nagel is able to organize also the pre-and on-carriage of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and healthcare products to the major international airports in Europe.

Temperature-controlled airfreight

In close cooperation with our partner airlines we have developed a range of solutions for temperature-controlled transports. Worldwide, Kuehne + Nagel is the first qualified Envirotainer partner (QEP) for active, temperature-controlled airfreight transports and disposes of the largest number of QEP certified locations among all forwarding companies.
