TNT Express offers new transport service for temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals

PBR Staff Writer Published 01 February 2012

TNT Express has introduced PharmaSafe, a specialized temperature-controlled service for the transport of large quantities of pharmaceutical products, such as vaccines and insulin.

PharmaSafe is designed to tackle the lack of control and visibility inherent in the involvement of too many parties.

TNT controls the full supply chain, from packaging procurement to delivery.

PharmaSafe also comes with the va-Q-tainer, a high performance, cost-efficient and re-usable passive container.

Va-Q-tainers are capable of maintaining the required inside temperature (frozen, refrigerated or controlled room temperature) for more than 120 hours without electrical power supply or dry ice.

TNT global industry healthcare director Roland Schuetze said PharmaSafe comes with cutting edge packaging and real time temperature and location tracking to further secure the transport of temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products.
