This allows trans-o-flex to deliver shipments at a constant temperature of 2 to 8 degrees and from 15 to 25 degrees. By doing this the company meets growing demand from pharmaceutical customers. With the new trucks, trans-o-flex can also meet the transport and documentation requirements arising from the stricter European regulations regarding the Good Distribution Practice (GDP).
Trans-o-flex acquired 46 MAN trucks of the chassis type with conditioned cargo space. Seven of these trucks are also suitable to pull a trailer, doubling the capacity while maintaining the agility of the combination. The company also acquired five semi-trailer trucks. These are trucks that can pull a trailer and are ideally suited for the delivery of large orders. Trans-o-flex also acquired seven trailers and semi-trailers with conditioned cargo space.
GDP is new European legislation and sets strict quality requirements for among others the transport of medicines. Temperature control and registration plays a very important role. With the new fleet, trans-o-flex is able to meet the demands the pharmaceutical industry sets.
