In an outstanding collaborative effort, Malenstein Global Logistics, EHS Africa Logistics and Envirotainer recently successfully transported temperature-sensitive frozen serum samples from Durham, USA, to Freetown, Sierra Leone, via a connecting flight in Brussels using the CryoSure® solution.

This critical shipment, intended for research and study purposes, required seamless transportation to ensure the strict product temperature of -20/-80°C was maintained for 17 days with only 5.5kg of Dry Ice and no-replenishment needed.

Envirotainer's cutting-edge CryoSure® solution played a pivotal role in safeguarding the integrity of the frozen serum samples, allowing for precise temperature control and monitoring.

"We are thrilled to have played a crucial role in ensuring the safe delivery of these frozen serum samples. The CryoSure® solution was instrumental in maintaining the required temperature and providing a reliable and robust environment for the samples during transit" said Adrien Carretero, Global Key Account Manager CryoSure® from Envirotainer.

The logistics behind the successful shipment were orchestrated by EHS Africa Logistics and Malenstein Global Logistics. Their expertise in handling temperature-sensitive cargo, combined with strategic planning, was essential in navigating the complexities of the shipment.

Tony Coker, CEO of EHS Africa Logistics commented: "Ensuring the safe transportation of the shipment required a comprehensive approach that addressed every aspect of the logistics process. We are proud to have been part of this tri-party collaboration and to demonstrate our commitment to delivering excellence across our network."
