We have had presence in Asia for 10 years but our focus was on perishables items. Now, our focus in on the healthcare industry. We are very new in the biopharmaceuticals market of Asia but the team was deployed in advance to understand the market and create background information. We want to make our customers understand what all we can deliver and how we can deliver. If a person is taking a vaccine, it has to be ensured that the vaccine has the same efficacy as it had when it was manufactured and packaged.
What is the network of transportation?
At the moment our services are shipped in 250 destinations worldwide. We have a network of operations with a center in Sydney and stations at Singapore, Tokyo and Osaka in Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Incheon in South Korea. In India, we are developing our ground handling management system. We are going to build more infrastructure that will support our service. This will be done in a phase-wise manner, hence it will take some time.
What kind of infrastructure is needed at airports to handle such services? Are Asian countries equipped with such facilities and qualified manpower to handle it?
More than half of the total flight time is actually spent on the ground. And that's where the most common risks occur due to wide variations in ambient temperature. Envirotainer's solutions are designed to handle these uncertainties. Active sensors monitor the temperature in order to maintain the required conditions inside the container. And data monitoring and documentation ensure to follow up the exact status of your shipment.
