Mediplus Selects Thermo King to Provide Stable and Secure Temperature-Controlled Environment for Transportation Fleet


Mediplus, a leading distributor of pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical products in Romania, collaborates with Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, to equip its new fleet of 145 refrigerated vans with sustainable cooling solutions for stable and secure temperature-controlled transport.

Pharmaceutical companies like Mediplus rely heavily on controlled and uncompromised transport of pharmaceutical products to ensure compliance with the European Union guidelines on good distribution practice (GDP). As part of this effort, Mediplus decided to upgrade its refrigeration fleet and replace the vans currently in operation.

After careful assessment including extensive winter and summer time testing, fuel consumption calculations and homologation process, Mediplus leaders decided that its new refrigeration fleet will be equipped with Thermo King B-100 refrigeration units. The units will come with a factory built-in feature to control auxiliary heating. Additionally Mediplus will receive six Thermo King T-600 series truck temperature control units. Both B-100 and T-600 systems are ATP Certified.

“At Mediplus we strive to comply with the highest international standards. Our goal is to constantly increase the quality and diversity of the offered services, and continue to raise quality standards and performance on the Romanian pharmaceutical market,” said Sorin David, logistics director at Mediplus. “In 2003, Mediplus received their first International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification for quality management and is currently certified by TÜV Rheinland according to ISO 9001: 2008 standards.”

“Termoport and Thermo King have always worked together with their customers and partners to implement best practices and adopt quality standards across their transportation network,” said Decebal Stefanescu, general manager at Termoport, the Thermo King dealer in Romania. “We are glad to collaborate with Mediplus and meet their sustainability, compliance and environmental care expectations by developing this all-electric temperature control system, with very low fuel consumption and minimal maintenance parts.”

The Thermo King B-100 refrigeration systems are designed for applications on small trucks and vans. The system provides reliable all-electric temperature control fully powered by the vehicle’s battery and controlled by the Thermo King Direct Smart Reefer controller.

In addition, the system is designed so that customers like Mediplus will experience low maintenance costs, low fuel consumption and ease of operation. This system also features an ultra-thin, ceiling-mounted evaporator for increased payload space.

Thermo King T-600 truck temperature control systems feature quiet operation, low fuel consumption and low maintenance requirements for time and operating cost savings. The units are equipped with theTSR-2 symbolic controller interface microprocessor control system for temperature precision through quick and easy settings of correct parameters for every load.

Additionally, Termoport will provide Mediplus with a five-year, full service maintenance program covered through its extensive national service network as well as training for the drivers.
