This Swedish company is the leading solutions provider for shipping temperaturesensitive cargo for the life science industry, ensuring safe transportation of medications such as insulin, vaccines and other biologically sensitive products. Each container holds precious cargo for a value of around one million dollars, however its value extends far beyond the price and technology. There are patients depending on the safe delivery of medication, and the transportation process must be carefully qualitycontrolled to ensure the products are not damaged or spoiled. Therefore, Envirotainer has labelled its containers with a photo of a child named Dora, alongside the message, “Dora is 8 and has diabetes. Please handle this container with extra care. It contains the insulin that she needs.” Impressive awards Envirotainer has been recognised for its global solutions and recently awarded the

The prize is a recognition for all employees that their help creates value for customers each and every day. The company also received the Export Hermes Award, presented by Crown Princess Victoria, for remarkable initiatives within Swedish export. The Posten Logistics Award, too, has been given to Envirotainer to acknowledge and reward its strong logistics solutions. “Envirotainer is not the type of company that normally gets a great deal of attention, so we are deeply honoured to have received these three prestigious awards,” says Angeldorff.

currently implementing SENTRY FlightSafe devices for its active containers.
