Bolloré Logistics India team on Tuesday shipped a highly critical shipment of cryoprecipitate all the way from London to Mumbai. The shipment of the cryoprecipitate, a frozen blood product prepared from plasma has been shipped for the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
To successfully ship the temperature-sensitive cargo, the company had to maintain a temperature of -20°C with dry ice. Bolloré Logistics India worked in partnership with an international carrier to ship the RAPt2 Envirotainer unit loaded with cargo and dry ice.
According to the company, the pre-cooled unit was handed over to the airline to ship under constant climatic conditions. However, due to last-minute changes in aircraft, dry ice permissible limit was reduced to 250 kg, because of which the container was offloaded and had to be kept on hold until dry ice dissipates from 450 kg to 250 kg. Later, due to technical glitch, the unit also had to be replaced.
The company informed that the complete process from arranging a new unit to offloading to transfer of cargo and freight was managed under strict temperature regulations and high compliance standards.
The new RAPt2 unit was loaded on the next immediate direct flight to Mumbai. Post arrival, to maintain the cold chain, dry ice was refilled before arranging delivery to the final consignee.
