Temperature & Service Expansion:
-196°C with Dry Shipper

Frankfurt, 3rd April 2024 – Logistics4Pharma, a GDP-compliant specialist in pharmaceutical cold-chain warehousing and logistics, is expanding its portfolio of  services at its facility in Kelsterbach to include dry shippers, further strengthening its logistics offering for the pharmaceutical industry at Frankfurt Airport.

A dry shipper (or cryoshipper) is a thermal container with an inlay that absorbs liquid nitrogen (LIN) to cool its contents to temperatures as low as -196°C. Julius von Pfeil, Head of Supply Chain & Finance, explains, “By expanding our shipment capabilities to -196°C, we can now meet bio-pharma customer needs, enhancing Frankfurt Airport’s status as a major logistics hub for highly-sensitive complex pharmaceutical compounds”.

Staff training and equipment validation began immediately upon the arrival of the equipment in late March at Logistics4Pharma, with the first commercial shipments scheduled for mid-April. Kees Schmidt, Head of Operations & Customer Service, notes, “After about six months of development, we’re now able to meet growing market demands and customer needs.” He adds, “With the inclusion of dry shippers alongside our extensive logistics cold chain solutions, we now cover all temperature ranges from +25°C to now -196°C in addition to our customs and bonded services. Logistics4Pharma now offers unique capabilities for and at Frankfurt Airport.”

This expansion comes just in time for the team to exhibit at Logipharma 2024 in Lyon, France, from the 16th to the 18th of April, at Booth 59. To learn about their full range of services or schedule a meeting, please reach out to infofra@logistics4pharma.de.
