Unitax uses Thermo King to supply vaccination centres

Brandenburg, Germany: Pharmaceutical logistics provider Unitax is using Thermo King V-Series fridges with tracking and monitoring to supply vaccination centres in the Brandenburg federal state with Covid-19 vaccines.

“Unitax now supplies about 200 GP practices, around 75 hospitals and eleven vaccination centres. Vaccinations in retirement and nursing homes are carried out by vaccination teams who receive the Covid 19 vaccine from the vaccination centres. Unitax is currently on the road with ten special vehicles, each of which supplies 15 to 20 delivery addresses daily”, said René Gutke, transport manager at Unitax.

The Unitax fleet, used for the last-mile transport of the vaccines, consists of GDP-certified Mercedes Sprinter vans with Thermo King V-500 fridges. The temperature in the load compartment is monitored via telematics and can be viewed in real time in the Thermo King TracKing portal.

All the data from Thermo King TracKing is also seamlessly transferred and integrated into the system of UNITAX’s third party monitoring service provider. It allows Unitax to have a clear view of all the relevant data, including temperature and door contact sensors, at all times.

“We have been relying on Thermo King refrigeration systems since we started in the pharmaceutical logistics business over 30 years ago,” said René Gutke. “We’ve also been using real-time telematics monitoring ever since it became possible. Knowing we have the Thermo King team on standby – even for mobile service missions in case an urgent repair is needed – gives us the peace of mind.”
