Keeping critical medical shipments moving globally
United Cargo has partnered with DSV Air and Sea to transport important pharma materials to places all over the world. One of the items most critical during the current crisis is blood plasma, a fragile product that requires very careful handling.
Along with developed operational procedures and oversight, temperature-controlled shipping containers from partners like Vaqtec can help protect these sensitive blood plasma shipments from temperature changes.
A single "TWINx" shipping container from Vaqtec can accommodate nearly 800 kg of such cargo. Every week, DSV delivers 20 of these containers, each one filled to capacity with human blood plasma, for loading onto a B787-9 for transport, and, "thanks to this close partnership" (Vaqtec global head of sales Christopher J. Storch), a B777 to Australia. (ah)
