VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems –

keeping medicines effective for the last mile

Temperature controlled biomedicines such as Vaccines are actively or passively regulated at a thermal level different from the surrounding ambient environment. Vaccines are transported in refrigerated containers to surgeries and local vaccine storage facilities where they are then stored in special vaccine fridges, ready to be delivered to administration sites including schools, clinics and care homes.

 

Keeping cold chain medicines within the +2°C and +8°C temperature range is a difficult and risky process, having products too cold causes deterioration or too warm can render them inert. Medicines stored and transported correctly reduce any risk of compromising their quality, efficacy and safety, so using a proven validated cool box is essential.

Helapet VaccinePorter® Carriers allow for safe, controlled transit of temperature sensitive products between +2°C and +8°C for up to 8 hours, even with multiple openings for multi-site deliveries. Validation documentation assures the users that the controlled product is safe in transit, maintaining integrity right up to the point of patient administration.

VaccinePorter® Carriers are available in various capacity sizes granting flexibility for a multitude of healthcare applications, from inter-department transportation in hospitals to community immunisation programmes. Various biomedicines included in cold chain transportation include:

  • Vaccinations
  • Insulin
  • Anti-cancer drugs
  • Monoclonal antibodies

 

Simple and quick to prepare, each VaccinePorter® Carrier comes with a lightweight fully replaceable components to cost effectively maintain thermal performance. Each carrier incorporates a secure Velcro® fastening and tamper evident facility to prevent theft and a clear document holder allowing for easy storage of accompanying information.

Supplied in 5 different sizes VaccinePorter® Carriers can accommodate up to 8 litres of product. Pick out your preferred size by requesting your hard copy of our VaccinePorter brochure, simply by emailing info@helapet.co.uk.

Increasing concerns for food safety will spur the demand for refrigerated vehicles

Refrigerated transportation is a critical link in the overall cold chain logistic operations. The localization of perishable commodities, growing population, coupled with rise in freight transportation due to economic development, has fueled the market for refrigerated transportation. Freight operators have also invested in the replacement of the equipment used for refrigerated transportation. In countries such as China and India, the current vehicle fleet is proving to be insufficient, given the high levels of population and rising per capita income. Government is facing a challenge of food wastage and initiatives are being undertaken by various government agencies to preserve the quality of the food during storage and distribution. Quality of food consumed is also a priority for the end users in the wake of increasing income. Initiatives for food security and changing perceptions of the end users are estimated to drive the demand for refrigerated vehicles.

Increase in Demand for Frozen Perishables

Globally, shifts in economic, social, and demographic trends are bound to put pressure on food suppliers. These changes will reshape the consumption pattern and consumer perception of frozen foods. The projected growth of frozen foods is promising, with growth opportunities from emerging markets such as the countries of the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.

As frozen foods have a longer shelf life, they are preferred when climatic conditions affect crop productivity. Food manufacturers include frozen foods in processed and packaged foods to provide consumers with food products at affordable prices. Freezing techniques provide the perfect solution to move food from the farmer’s market to the supermarket by improving affordability, accessibility, and preventing loss of food.

In the frozen food category, there is a huge opportunity in developing countries and developed countries. In developing markets such as India, China, and Latin American countries, the growing incomes are leading to growth in the middle-class population who are eager to try out different ethnic and international cuisine. The growth of service sectors such as fast food chains, quick service restaurants, and hypermarkets are accelerating the growth of frozen foods.

Fast-growing NewCold Advanced Cold Logistics is renewing its fleet of 36 tractors with Volvo FH 6x2s following continued and steady demand for its services.

The 500hp Euro 6 vehicles, supplied by dealer Crossroads Truck & Bus in Birstall, are equipped with Volvo’s innovative I-Shift transmission. They all have Globetrotter cabs and a 4.1m wheelbase to maximise fuel capacity. The vehicles are being supplied on a full three-year contract hire package.

Wakefield-based NewCold is also taking delivery of a further six new Gray & Adams 44-pallet floating deck trailers in January, which will bring the double-deck fleet to 12. This fleet will continue to expand in 2017 to fulfil NewCold’s ambitious environmental goals to minimise food miles and harmful emissions – the company expects to take delivery of around 30 more double-deck trailers by the end of the year.

NewCold’s Country Director, Jon Miles, said: “The FH4 500 is loved by our drivers and the truck also gives good journey times while giving great returns on fuel. With Crossroads Truck & Bus close to our operating centre we get world-class service to maximise up-time.”

Mr Miles said that NewCold would continue to grow as manufacturers see the benefits of the company’s “first-class service being currently delivered from our national distribution hub at Wakefield”.

“The outstanding transport service we provide, together with our world class warehouse automation model and our strategic location, make NewCold the benchmark performer in our industry,” added Mr Miles.
