Thermo King GDP Pharma Refrigerated Trailer Units in DB Schenker Fleet
DB Schenker Logistics, the transportation and logistics division of Deutsche Bahn and one of the world’s largest transportation and logistics services provider expanded its refrigerated fleet in Tilburg, Netherlands with new trailers featuring Good Distribution Practices (GDP) qualified Thermo King SLXe Spectrum units.
The GDP compliant PharmaSolutions units from Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, enable the 12 new DB Schenker refrigerated trailers to transport pharmaceutical products and ensure the high level of product quality and integrity determined by good manufacturing practices according to European Union guidelines.
“The reliable delivery of healthcare products can be lifesaving. We take this responsibility seriously and ensure that the sensitive freight of our healthcare sector customers is delivered safely, securely and according to the strict European requirements,” said Hans Cleijsen, head of System Freight Tilburg, at DB Schenker Logistics Netherlands. “With Thermo King PharmaSolutions we have the support that helps us to meet our commitments.”
“As most medical and biological products require a temperature controlled environment at all stages of manufacturing and distribution, the control of storage and transportation temperatures is vital in maintaining the quality and effectiveness of medicine,” said Roland Duquesne, director strategic accounts and vertical markets at Thermo King. “Our PharmaSolutions GDP qualification package provides a comprehensive and dedicated expertise platform that addresses the precise needs of the pharmaceutical industry, covering a broad spectrum of equipment and services to ensure patient safety.”
Thermo King developed a GDP protocol covering the four stages outlined in the European GDP guidelines. As part of it, Thermo King conducts extreme conditions thermal mapping of the refrigerated unit and the ATP certified body to prove that the equipment is able to maintain the temperature within the allowed ranges. This procedure additionally contributes to customers’ time and qualification costs savings.
