  • Two million euros for 34 new two-chamber delivery vehicles
  • Lower emissions and doubly certified safety: Trucks meet GDP and ATP standards for the delivery of pharmaceuticals and food
  • Company combines chassis from Mercedes-Benz with special body from Spier for the first time
trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria, which specialises in actively temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceuticals in the temperature ranges 'refrigerated' (2 to 8 degrees) and 'ambient' (15 to 25 degrees), is investing around two million euros in a new generation of delivery vehicles. With the procurement of 34 vehicles, the company is renewing almost half of its transport fleet and intends to set a new quality standard. "In Austria, we have decided to use for the first time a combination of a Mercedes-Benz chassis with a box body from the body specialist Spier," says Wolfgang P. Albeck, CEO of trans-o-flex. "The Euro 6 diesel engines operate more quietly and cleanly than their predecessors and the design gives our customers even more security with regard to the compliance with the respective temperature range prescribed for the transport of medicines in Austria."

The two-chamber vehicles, which transport goods at a temperature of 2 to 8 degrees Celsius in one part of the loading space and at 15 to 25 degrees Celsius in the other, are certified in accordance with the GDP standard for the transport of pharmaceutical products. At the same time, trans-o-flex ThermoMed has attached importance to ATP certification. "The ATP certificate confirms the suitability for food transport," explains Albeck. "Although we do not transport foodstuffs, this sign of quality certifies how well different temperatures can be maintained in the loading space. The performance of the multi-chamber refrigerator and the insulation of the box body are so high that we could also use it to transport frozen goods."
