When 14,000+ employees in remote parts of the Middle East need critical vaccines, Remote Medical International® delivers.
Did you know that hepatitis B, polio, tetanus, and meningitis vaccines are only effective if kept at a steady temperature of 2°-8° C (35°-46° F) during transit, which can last over 100 hours?
When a US Government contractor came to us with the challenge of safely shipping millions of dollars’ worth of refrigerated vaccines to Afghanistan on their behalf, we completed a thorough assessment of their unique requirements; this project was going to be no simple task.
In the face of such a challenging environment with extreme temperatures, we utilized our extensive expertise in cold chain shipping and customs compliance and leveraged our global vendor network to secure both competitive pricing and other resources required to ensure the integrity and potency of the vaccines.
Within one week of the order being finalized, we were ready to ship. We had procured a vaccine refrigerator and a backup generator to properly store and assemble the cold chain shipment, completed all of the necessary customs paperwork, and received pre-clearance from customs for the shipment to avoid any delays.
Eighty-three hours later, the vaccines were safely delivered to Afghanistan at the proper temperature, which was constantly monitored and maintained throughout the long and complicated journey.
Because of our capabilities and efficiency, the US Government contractor was successfully able to vaccinate its employees on-time and with US-standard medications to ensure the safety, stability, and integrity of the medications received. Beyond successfully achieving the scope of the project requirements, it is gratifying completing a task which positively impacts the health and safety of 14,000+ people.
