To support global COVID-19 vaccine distribution
Envirotainer, provider of cold chain solutions for air transport of pharmaceuticals, has broadened its partnership with Unilode Aviation Solutions to meet the upcoming worldwide demand for the COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
Envirotainer has increased its active temperature-controlled container capacity at several key locations around the world for its customers in the pharmaceutical supply chain to ensure the fast, safe and reliable delivery of vaccines.
Envirotainer has been working with Unilode since 2013 for the repair, maintenance, handling, transportation and storage of temperature-controlled active air freight containers at 24 strategic locations.
The latest joint service innovation is the development of pop-up ground handling and repair shops.
These will be implemented, at short notice, for large volume COVID-19 vaccine distributions, closer to key pharmaceutical production hubs, to ensure the fast and safe delivery of the much needed vaccines across the world.
Niklas Adamsson, COO Envirotainer, said: ”Unilode is increasing its MRO capacity at key locations and will support Envirotainer with maintenance and repair services at our recently started ground operations in Beijing, China.
"Unilode’s expertise in the maintenance and repair of Envirotainer’s active containers will ensure the optimal performance of our containers when time is of the essence and availability of the units is crucial to ensure the success of global vaccine distribution.”
Don Jacobs, Managing Director MRO Solutions, Unilode, said: “Unilode’s global ULD MRO solutions make it possible to provide additional repair capability to meet its partners’ requirements.
"We are pleased that Unilode can help support the global distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine by saving time and increasing the availability of active containers for Envirotainer’s pharmaceutical customers.”
