One Box Fits All – the Vaccine Cooling Box that can adapt

THE CHALLENGE: a highly dynamic situation

Billions of vaccine shots have to be distributed all over the globe within only a short period of time. Additionally, you have a variety of manufacturers, vaccines, temperature corridors and transport volumes in various production cycles to deal with. And at the same you want to follow the maxim:

  • As safely as possible – no dose of Covid-19 vaccine should be lost.
  • As efficiently as possible – no space on a plane or truck should be wasted.

The more heterogenous a situation is, the more important homogenous processes are. And for vaccine logistics that means: a modular vaccine insulated box that can easily adapt to all parameters, maximize the efficient transport and minimize risks and process mistakes. Only eutecma, your specialist for pharmaceutical cold-chain packaging, can offer this solution.

THE SOLUTION: One Box Fits All

Modularity is in the DNA of our PROTECT Insulated Box family. Be it 4, 95, 495 or 1,500 liters of payload – the modular PROTECT Vaccine Insulated Boxes always fit. This is ensured by a stacking system which is unique in the market and allows you to build up the PROTECT palletshiper (1/2 Euro, Euro and XL) of the PROTECT family exactly to the height you need. The shipper simply selects the number of side panels needed at any given moment.

This building block system, however, is also scalable as regards to temperatures. Because the modular PROTECT Vaccine Insulated Boxes are filled with universally usable ICECATCH©Cooling Elements. They make sure that the precious vaccine cargo always stays within the specified temperature range (Deep Frozen, Frozen, Cold or Ambient).

THE FORMULA FOR SUCCESS: PROTECT + ICECATCH = a perfect landing

Simply combine our modular PROTECT Vaccine Insulated Boxes with the right ICECATCH©-Cooling Elements. This gives you a highly innovative system for the shipment of any vaccine in any temperature range for any volume. This formula for success offers you a strategic approach that takes into consideration the various phases of the global, national, regional and local distribution process. In a nutshell: a three-point landing that is always successful.

Example: If, in the first delivery phase, only small volumes of produced vaccine need to be shipped on, the customer chooses for example, the PROTECT 1/2-Euro-pallet shipper. If, however, large volumes need shipping, the customer opts for the PROTECT XL Palette shipper whose payload can be expanded to more than 1,500 liters. Should only half of the advised vaccine volumes arrive, it takes only a moment to manually reduce the size of the box. Even mobile vaccination teams, whose vaccine volumes vary daily can always be sent on their way with the insulated box that has exactly the right size.
