With temperature-sensitive Covid-19 vaccines having to be transported both nationally and internationally, the importance of temperature-control solutions is becoming fully realised.

Thermo King is a global leader in intelligent end-to-end temperature-controlled cold chain solutions. Its parent-brand, Trane Technologies, along with its dealer network help UNITAX-Pharmalogistik GmbH distribute efficiently and safely Covid-19 vaccines all over Germany.

UNITAX has been awarded with an exclusive contract to supply all vaccination centres in the Brandenburg federal state with Covid-19 vaccines.

The delivery fleet is equipped with state-of-the-art Thermo King V-Series refrigeration units and telematics technologies, which allow real time tracking and monitoring.

Speaking about the safe and efficient delivery methods, Francesco Incalcza, President of Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “The most important thing is to support safe – and fast – delivery of the vaccine to people.”

“At Thermo King, we are helping to ensure the vaccine is quickly and efficiently distributed to the vaccination points, and that means working closely with distribution companies like UNITAX.”

René Gutke, transport manager at UNITAX, stated, “UNITAX now supplies about 200 GP practices, around 75 hospitals and 11 vaccination centres.”

The UNITAX fleet itself comprises of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certified Mercedes Sprinter vans fitted with Thermo King V-500 refrigeration units.

Utilising the Thermo King TracKing technology, all vans are able to be monitored remotely at all times.
