May 10, 2019: Medpak VI°C, solution for safe and reliable transportation of sensitive healthcare products, will now be available to the global healthcare marketplace, announce FedEx Express and TNT.
The service initially launched in Europe in 2016, will now roll out internationally, starting with Asia-Pacific and North America.
Medpak VI°C is the innovative network solution that allows companies in the clinical trials sector to ship test medications in temperature-controlled, reuseable packaging. Medpak VI°C is also now serving customers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in addition to the clinical trials sector.
“The international launch of Medpak VI°C to various healthcare sectors marks an important and exciting step forward for the FedEx Express and TNT healthcare portfolio, as well as for integration of the two businesses,” said Roland Schutze, Healthcare lead at FedEx Express and TNT.
“More than anything, our customers need reliability in terms of the technology itself, highly accurate delivery performance, time-sensitive shipment and having a partner that can deliver a full end-to-end service without multiple carriers and supported by a dedicated customer service team.”
FedEx Express and TNT began integrating in 2016 to offer customers a broader service portfolio and the benefits of access to the world’s largest air express network and an unparalleled road network.
Medpak VI°C, originally a TNT service, was made available to FedEx customers in Europe in 2018.
