China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest carrier, said Wednesday that it will launch temperature-controlled air freight services later this year to meet logistical needs, primarily in the healthcare industry.

Through a joint campaign with Envirotainer, CAL said it could elevate its international competitiveness by offering more diverse air cargo services.

CAL said it will participate in an Envirotainer training program on handling of all types of temperature-controlled containers and further integrate resources from SkyTeam Cargo, the world’s only international air cargo alliance, which the airline joined in 2012.

The company said it will target eight airports — Taiwan Taoyuan, Amsterdam Schipol, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Tokyo Narita, Osaka, Los Angeles and Singapore — for its temperature-controlled air freight business in the initial phase.
