“AC Absolute° is a premium, quality-driven service that the healthcare industry can rely on when shipping healthcare products,” said Chris Fore, Compliance Manager at Envirotainer. “I am especially pleased to recognize Air Canada Cargo as a Qualified Envirotainer Provider.”
Air Canada Cargo has handled the Envirotainer container since 2011, when it launched its AC Absolute° solution.  An AC Cool Chain solution, AC Absolute° is offered at over 40 certified locations throughout Air Canada Cargo’s international network.
Air Canada Cargo will pursue QEP accreditation at all AC Absolute° locations in its continued commitment to the quality handling of temperature-controlled shipments.
