(PresseBox) ( Weinheim, )
Scherübl Transport, the Austrian provider of logistic services with a focus on the actively temperature-controlled transportation of sensible pharmaceuticals, finishes its integration into the trans-o-flex Group with a new and modern appearance and a new name. Since 28th February 2012, the company has been operating under the name of trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria GmbH. "It was our intention to underline our affiliation with a strong group of companies, which provides its special services for the pharmaceutical industry not only in Austria but also in Germany, the Benelux countries as well as, since recently, France and Denmark", says Franz Scherübl, Sr. Already in 2008, the company's founder had sold the majority of shares. He, nevertheless, still holds some of them and, in his capacity as member of the Management Board of trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria, will continue to be responsible for driving the company's growth. "As a part of the trans-o-flex logistic group, we can not only offer our services outside Austria but also benefit from the innovations and process improvements of our German colleagues and have the financial power of trans-o-flex's holding company Österreichische Post, which is especially important as regards further investments in our network."

The new appearance is implemented step by step. "We start where we have the most contacts with our customers - our drivers and vehicles", explains Scherübl. The vehicles will come in the design of the noble charcoal grey and dynamic orange on a white underground, which has already been introduced for trans-o-flex ThermoMed in Germany and the Benelux countries. "When doing all this, we do, of course, not forget that we are a medium-sized company, thus keeping the costs incurred due to this change at a low level." Therefore, the vehicles' design and inscription will be changed gradually within the scope of the procurement of new or replacement vehicles.

In order to match the drivers' appearance as well, all of the specialists for the last mile were given the ThermoMed service uniforms. The pharmaceutical specialist's business equipment as well as the Internet presence will be adjusted accordingly. Scherübl: "We believe that this will help us achieve a high level of brand recognition, thus being able to highlight the quality and value of our wide range of logistic services for Austria's pharmaceutical companies."
