Global logistics company, Kuehne + Nagel, has expanded its pharmaceutical trailer fleet in Belgium and Luxembourg by investing in 50 temperature-controlled semis.
According to the Swiss company, the new trailers are manufactured with aggregates that “guarantee temperature control at all times” through new built-in Discharge Air Control (DAC) and Precision Temperature Control (PTC) technology.
“[The new technology] protects the cargo from any temperature deviation, which is a key industry requirement,” Kuehne + Nagel said in a media statement, albeit without mentioning the respective supplier.
“With temperature accuracy improvement, the set point bandwidth has been reduced by 80 per cent and the temperature sensitivity control has been improved in the remote zone of the trailer.
“It reduces the risk of pharmaceutical products being damaged by frost.”
Across Europe, Kuehne + Nagel has a 100-unit strong fleet of temperature-controlled trailers dedicated to serving the pharmaceutical industry, explained Kevin Nash, Managing Directorar Kuehne + Nagel Belgium & Luxembourg.
“We are committed to investing in best-in-class equipment to ensure our customers’ products arrive at their destination safe and completely intact through shipping fully compliant according to temperature guidelines.”
