Cold chain linehaul

Active cooled transport by linehaul

Temperature-managed transport is essential for many medicines and medicinal products. In the meantime, there are a number of suitably specialized carriers in Europe, which are already in use for Arvato today. Since there is no Pan-European, cross-border network for actively cooled transportation, the only solution is to use insulated boxes or the use of non-tempered vehicles.

Arvato provides an advantageous alternative: Using a direct connection, the Harsewinkel headquarters feeds daily cold-chain shipments into the network of a local refrigerated carrier, where they are forwarded with active cooling. This so-called "local injection" allows us to offer actively cooled logistics across national boundaries. In addition, there are savings of more than 20 percent  compared to the use of insulated boxes.
