Supporting the fight against Covid-19, Germany-based temperature-controlled container company va-Q-tec has provided international pharmaceutical distributors with several thousand of its va-Q-med boxes for the shipment of drugs, diagnostic kits and other temperature-sensitive products.
The company offers boxes and containers for long-distance international use, as well as solutions for short-distance transportation to end customers.
According to va-Q-tec, more than half of all coronavirus test kits are transported worldwide, from countries such as South Korea, using its boxes and containers.
Commenting on the importance of va-Q-tec transport solutions during the coronavirus crisis, Joachim Kuhn, chief executive of va-Q-tec, said: “As experts in the temperature-controlled supply chains area, we are proving that we can ensure fast and safe global logistics for vital life science products, also in times of crisis.
“The current Covid-19 pandemic is once again demonstrating the crucial importance of globally and locally functioning temperature-controlled logistics chains.
“Since the start of the pandemic, we have ensured the reliable transport of temperature-sensitive test kits both on the last transport mile to the end customer and internationally. We are also ready to transport a vaccine or drug with our products securely and on a temperature-stable basis worldwide.”
