Kuehne + Nagel takes a step further to keep pharma cool
Mar 16, 2017: Logistics giant Kuehne + Nagel has expanded its specialty trailer network in Belgium and Luxembourg by investing in 50 temperature-controlled pharma trailers to offer its customers state-of-the-art equipment that ensures the quality of their pharmaceutical products from pick-up to delivery.
The specialty trailers are manufactured with aggregates that guarantee temperature control at all times through new built-in DAC (Discharge Air Control) and PTC (Precision Temperature Control) technology.
Moreover, it protects the cargo from any temperature deviation which is a key industry requirement. With temperature accuracy improvement, the set point bandwidth has been reduced by 80 percent and the temperature sensitivity control has been improved in the remote zone of the trailer. It reduces the risk of pharmaceutical products being damaged by frost.
Kuehne + Nagel is one of the first logistics providers equipped with such a large number of temperature-controlled trailers for serving the pharmaceutical industry – in the meantime grown to a number of more than 100 in Europe.
“We are committed to investing in best-in-class equipment to ensure our customers’ products arrive at their destination safe and completely intact through shipping fully compliant according to temperature guidelines,” said Kevin Nash, managing director, Kuehne + Nagel Belgium & Luxembourg.
