AirBridgeCargo Airlines and DHL Global Forwarding have completed a trial using an Envirotainer RKN active container to transport a multimodal shipment of healthcare products from Moscow to Miami in accordance with Good Distribution Practice cool chain standards.
According to ABC, the trial replaced real vaccines with service water in order to test the delivery process at each step of the transportation and to monitor the condition of the water, which replicates the state of vaccines under similar circumstances.
Together with DHL Global Forwarding Russia, ABC’s pharma experts brought the RKN unit to the customer’s warehouse and accepted the cargo as a fully built-up unit ready for carriage at its airport warehouse premises.
