September 03, 2021: va-Q-tec has expanded to Europe, Africa, India, Asia. In addition to the TempChain Service Centre in Johannesburg in South Africa, these special services have also been offered in Port Elizabeth since June 2021. The two South African network stations are equally important strategic locations to support pharmaceutical logistics on the African continent with va-Q-tec’s high-performance product portfolio.
The German company is continuously optimizing the global availability of its innovative thermal containers and boxes making worldwide temperature-controlled supply chains safer, more cost-efficient and more sustainable.
In April 2021, it opened a TempChain Service Center in Brussels. Since then boxes and containers have been preconditioned there, i.e. prepared individually for the temperature range required in each case with the help of innovative temperature storage elements phase change materials (PCMs). The thermal container is then sent immediately to the customer, who then places the temperature-sensitive goods inside. This ensures a closed temperature chain.
In India, there will be two TempChain Service Centers soon to be operating in Hyderabad that are very centrally located in India and thus optimal for international as well as national shipments.
In addition to these new openings and expansions, va-Q-tec will continue to expand its global TempChain service network. It now includes nearly 40 stations on six continents, ensuring the smooth operation of temperature-controlled supply chains worldwide.
