Envirotainer tackles the billionth vaccine – Logistics Business® مجلة

December 24, 2021

Envirotainer, the global leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transport of pharmaceuticals, calls for continued collaboration between pharmaceutical companies and the logistics industry.

The call to action comes as Envirotainer is at a major milestone in shipping COVID-19 vaccines. One billion transported in the company’s fleet of more than 6,500 temperature-controlled air freight containers. They are designed to maintain a constant internal temperature, some for more than a week, ensuring treatments arrive in perfect condition.

With much of Europe imposing new restrictions on liberties to reduce cases, the entire sector must be ready to meet the growing demand for vaccines and boosters.

Globally, only 56.9% of the world’s population has received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This shows the remaining mountain to climb. In doing so, pharmaceutical manufacturers, rehabilitation companies, airlines, and cold chain solution providers have to work seamlessly as an extension of each other.

This calls for full transparency about which shipments are critical and need to be prioritized. It also requires more advance planning. Not only in terms of keeping COVID-19 treatments going, but also in terms of other life-saving medicines that are required daily around the world.

Niclas Adamson, chief operating officer of Envirotainer, said: “We are very proud to be handling 1 billion vaccines at a time when air freight has been restricted and demand was so high. This is thanks to the amazing collaboration we’ve been a part of across the industry.

“We have worked closely with our partners and customers, and now we want to work even more closely with those efforts against Omicron. It is critical that we continue to work together across the cold chain to get the next doses to patients, where they need them. It is our responsibility as part of the fight against coronavirus, and we are prepared. To do everything we can.”
