Envirotainer recently helped ship the first Russian COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V for clinical trials to Abu Dhabi. During the entire length of the transport, the temperature inside the container was maintained at the desired -20°C by Envirotainer’s shipping solutions.
The vaccine Sputnik V is designed, developed and produced in Russia by Gamaleya Institute for Epidemiology and Microbiology and Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF). The vaccines were safely loaded into an Envirotainer RKNt2 container and then shipped by Emirates SkyCargo from Moscow to Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Shortly after arrival in the heat of Dubai, with its challenging conditions, the critical cargo shipment was loaded onto a truck for its final-mile transport from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.
Envirotainer, which is currently actively looking to help distribute the vaccines, carried out the entire operation with the help of their partner DHL Global Forwarding. In a Linkedin post, the company stated that it is happy to be part of the historic transport and that the feat was possible because of the trust put in them by the Gamaleya Institute and RDIF.
