- The logistics service provider specialising in the transport of pharmaceuticals attributes demands for worldwide storage and transport temperatures of minus 80 degrees to a lack of expert knowledge
- trans-o-flex's ThermoMed special network is available for the local distribution of vaccines in Germany and Austria
- Active temperature control at 2 to 8 degrees, i.e. monitoring, control and documentation of compliance with the temperature range, is suitable for ruling out a possible reduction in the efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines during transport
From all this, trans-o-flex concludes that Covid-19 vaccines are also most likely to be classified as cold chain products that can be safely transported at so-called refrigerator temperature. "Thanks to our actively temperature-controlled networks, we are therefore optimally prepared for a nationwide distribution of Covid-19 vaccines," says Wolfgang P. Albeck. "The subsidiary trans-o-flex ThermoMed, which specialises in distribution in the temperature range between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius, can deliver Covid-19 vaccines, just like the influenza vaccines of recent years, to all doctors, pharmacies, hospitals and pharmaceutical wholesalers in Germany and Austria in a safe and transparently documented manner.
