va-Q-tec supports pharmaceutical industry in Asia with worldwide logistics of COVID-19 diagnostic kits
Made in Germany, va-Q-tech’s high-tech thermal
containers and boxes are vital for the international logistics of temperature-sensitive COVID19 diagnostic kits, drugs
and vaccines.


  • Leading pharmaceutical companies in Asia
    use va-Q-tec’s temperature-controlled box-and container-solutions for
    international distribution.
  • va-Q-tec’s
    high-performance thermal boxes and containers supports temperature-controlled supply
    chains despite logistical challenges and unforeseen delays due to the current
    pandemic.
  • Currently,
    more than half of the COVID-19 diagnostic kits worldwide are shipped
    internationally using va-Q-tec’s thermal boxes and container.

WÜRZBURG,
GERMANY – Media OutReach – 29 May 2020 – va-Q-tec, pioneer of highly efficient products and solutions in the field
of thermal insulation and TempChain logistics, is boosting its activities in Asia
to support global efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic. Based in Germany, home
to the leading producers of COVID-19 diagnostic kits, va-Q-tec’s
temperature-controlled pharmaceutical shipping solutions are currently
supporting more than half of the international distribution of COVID-19
diagnostic kits.  Asian
manufacturers of the diagnostic kits, such as Seegene, Osang
Healthcare
and MiREXES, currently handle the international logistics
of their products using va-Q-tec’s thermal boxes and containers.

Temperature-controlled
pharmaceutical logistics are faced with an increasingly set of challenges
amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. For instance, handling by air freight often takes longer and is
difficult to calculate due to reduced airfreight capacities which are the
result of limited or even shut-down operations of airlines. Also, availability
of personnel for customs or logistics processing is limited. Nevertheless, the
functionality of the diagnostic kits must be secured by the safe temperature
stability in any region of the world.

 

va-Q-tec’s
high-performance thermal boxes and containers meet these requirements reliably
as ideal transport solutions for pharmaceutical products. Thanks to their special properties, they protect the valuable contents
for a period of five to ten days without the use of an external energy supply
or dry ice, a hazardous material.

Dr. Joachim Kuhn, CEO of va-Q-tec AG, shares
As experts in the field of temperature-controlled packaging and
logistics, we are very proud to extend our support to the Asian manufacturers
of diagnostic kits in their international distribution. They make an important
contribution to the health of all global citizens in the current state of pandemic.
At va-Q-tec, we feel especially connected to Asian companies because a part of
the founder’s family is from Korea. We are doing everything we can to stand
alongside and support our partners.”

For optimal support of international pharmaceutical
long-distance transports as well as last-mile logistics, va-Q-tec is enhancing
the availability of its high-tech transport boxes and containers worldwide,
particularly in Asia. Due to the pandemic, the company is offering its
customers the possibility of handling transports cost-effectively and reliably
from pick-up to delivery to the end‑customer.

The company also developed a specially
designed pallet-sized transport solution for pharmaceutical logistics from Asia
to the world within a very short time frame. This enables a large number of
diagnostic kits or drugs to be delivered to hot regions or to remote destinations
with no option to return the container. Despite its light weight and compact
design, the high-performance pallet shipper achieves a performance comparable
to the well-known va-Q-tainer: It can maintain -20 °C for 124 hours, but it is
also very convincing in other temperature ranges.

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - AECO Energy, a new entrant to Singapore's electricity sector, has today announced the launch of its operations. AECO Energy will be the first-of-its kind energy technology and services company aimed at innovating customer-centric offerings in electricity and renewable energy markets.

With over 12 years of experience in delivering open market electricity services and solutions to businesses in Australia under the Power Choice brand, AECO Energy is bringing its second generation of services and technology to Singapore for the first time. AECO's second generation delivers on two major offerings.

Firstly, AECO delivers the 'last mile' of value in Singapore Open Electricity Market (OEM) value chain by providing innovative services to assist businesses to manage, plan and make better buying decisions.

AECO is all about enabling increased profits for businesses. AECO has a customer-centric mission to use its low-cost proven technology and expert-led services to enable better business decisions within a complex electricity market with multiple providers and opaque medium- to long-term pricing information. This comes against the backdrop of Singapore's maturing OEM, which gives businesses and consumers the autonomy to buy and choose their electricity providers - the freedom to choose.

AECO Energy's technology platform, MarketPro™ with its unique, electricity futures market simulator Rate Watch™, delivers business and electricity efficiency and empowers businesses through relevant and timely pricing information, while also helping Singapore businesses make better buying decisions via automated tenders and reverse auctions. Moreover, for businesses who do not have the capability and capacity to manage and purchase its own electricity, AECO Energy Portfolio™ delivers scalable buying power with a fully-managed contract management and purchasing aggregation service for small, medium and large businesses.

Alan Jones, CEO, Chairman & Founder, AECO Energy, said: "We are incredibly excited and humbled to be joining Singapore's dynamic energy scene with our low-cost, high-value products and services. Our mission is clear: just like Amazon is revolutionising the 'last mile' of product supply chains with its same day delivery, we are also delivering the 'last mile' of the value chain in Singapore's OEM that enables more businesses better purchasing decisions, more business profitability and growing all of Singapore's economy."

Secondly, with SGX-listed entities, enterprises and multinational corporations (MNCs)' increasing emphasis on sustainability, AECO (through its SustainPro™ offering) will bring for the first-time in Singapore the benefit of AECO's direct relationship with generators of International Renewable Certificates (I-REC). This enables Southeast Asian markets the benefit of medium- to long-term low-cost and structured REC solutions to meet renewable energy targets and sustainability goals. This translates to more profits by providing more predictable costs for businesses in meeting their sustainability and renewable energy goals.

"As a specialised company, unburdened with corporate overheads and distractions from Singapore's local market participants, we can offer companies who are based anywhere in Southeast Asia, sustainability and renewable energy solutions that span markets and countries at a lower and more predictable price. We are honoured to play our part to bring sustainability and increased renewable energy throughout the world and to do so while benefiting our customers' cost structures," continued Mr. Jones.

AECO Energy is introducing three offerings as part of its electricity management solutions:

  • MarketPro™: Businesses can optimise costs and seize market opportunities with exclusive access to customised market price information through AECO Energy's integrated online procurement and management platform equipped with Rate Watch™, a market simulation and automated procurement technology from as low as SGD $149 per month.
  • Portfolio™: Businesses get exclusive access to economies of scale with better buying power through professional and expert-managed energy procurement portfolios overseen by AECO Energy experts. This allows enterprises to focus on their core business while AECO Energy experts will fully-manage their electricity contracts and make better buying decisions on their behalf from as low as an additional SGD $74 per month.
  • SustainPro™: SustainPro focuses on helping businesses meet their sustainability goals at the lowest cost. AECO Energy offers lower costs on the procurement of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and tailored REC supply solutions designed to meet transition needs towards a more sustainable business.

"With the understanding that business needs are unique for every organisation, our energy experts will work closely with customers here in Singapore to help them reduce costs, drive efficiency and make better buying decisions. By providing technology-enabled, insights-driven energy technology solutions, we want to create a profound impact on our customers' businesses to better position them for sustainable growth in the long-term," concluded Alan.
