BITO and the startup Tec4med Lifescience GmbH are developing digital high-performance transport boxes for sending corona vaccines
The company BITO-Lagertechnik Bittmann GmbH from Meisenheim and the startup Tec4med Lifescience GmbH from Darmstadt are developing digital high-performance transport boxes for sending corona vaccines and other temperature-sensitive drugs.
By jointly developing a GDP-compliant transport system for vaccines and drugs in a wide variety of temperature ranges, the traditional company from the logistics industry and the young startup from Darmstadt have merged the two competencies from logistics, pharmaceuticals and the Internet of Things (IoT for short) and created a digital transport solution for the steadily increasing demands on the transport of medical goods.
Even before the pandemic, both companies had given extensive thought to the process optimization of their customers in the pharmaceutical industry. The currently very specific requirements of corona vaccine logistics confirm that this development path is being taken in good time, with both companies presenting their joint solution right on time for the global vaccination start: “The many years of expertise in logistics paired with our fresh, digital ideas from the pharmaceutical industry leave some Products are created ”, says Nico Höler CEO of Tec4med. The founder continues: “With our thermal high-performance solution for the ranges -80 ° C, 2–8 ° C and 15–25 ° C and running times of over 100 hours, we are pleased with a transport container that is not only thermally superior, but also to have developed an environmentally friendly and resource-saving reusable system. The seamless integration of the Internet of Things, which not only provides complete traceability of the supply chain in real time, but also a digital, theft-proof seal, sets us apart from all existing solutions on the market in terms of both thermal and security superiority. “
Christian Mohr, Product Manager of the Plastics Business Unit at BITO, confirms this common idea: “Due to the increasing demands of our customers when transporting vaccines or medicines around the world, many guidelines have to be adhered to in order to guarantee the perfect condition of the products at all times. With a clear focus on the customer and our users, we have created a holistic product that not only simplifies our customers’ processes, but also completely digitalises them in the era of Industry 4.0. “
