Transporting Insulin from Denmark to Democratic Republic of Congo
Missionpharma was requesting delivery of Insulin to their warehouse in Goma, DRC. Due to airport size and services to Goma, it was decided that the shipment would go to Kigali, Rwanda by air and trucked to Goma.
This required Missionpharma to source a packaging solution that would keep the products at temperature range between 2-8 degrees Celsius throughout the transit time without any excursions.
Shippers from Pelican BioThermal are used regularly to transport vital temperature sensitive products by air to their clients. As the end-users are often situated in remote areas, it was vital for the client to find a supplier of passive temperature packaging with the ability of hibernation during transport. The transit time during transport are often longer than 120 hours, which means that temperature controlled trucks are often used in the multimodal transport to ensure products arrive without breach of the cold chain.
The decision was made to use CoolPall™ Flex from Pelican BioThermal, as the ability to hibernate would provide sufficient security of temperature as the transit time was 7 days.
