Schoeller Allibert has partnered with German chemical manufacturer and distributor, CG Chemikalien GmbH & Co. KG (‘CG Chemikalien’), to support the transportation of raw materials used to produce the Covid-19 vaccine.
The European market leader in the production of recyclable, reusable and returnable plastic packaging solutions has supplied its ComboLife® 65 intermediate bulk container (IBC) to CG Chemikalien, which is responsible for transporting liquid raw materials to pharmaceutical companies globally.
Schoeller Allibert understands the challenge of manufacturing vaccines on a large scale and supplying at a global level. As a result, the company has taken steps to make sure that CG Chemikalien has the tools to securely transport its liquid raw materials to pharmaceutical companies so that production of the COVID-19 vaccine will not be delayed due to lack of raw materials.
When transporting liquid raw materials of such a high value, it is important to make sure the option of tamper evidence and strapping is available to ensure safety. Schoeller Allibert’s foldable IBCs are safe, hygienic, and efficient for pharmaceutical industries and, in addition after use, the container can be returned and reused.
The ComboLife 65 is a lightweight, compact, foldable IBC designed to handle a variety of fluid products. Practical and cost-effective, it ensures safe, secure, sustainable and efficient logistics operations.
It comes with a level indicator and optional features include a drain hole in the base and lid with a tamper-evident locking device. Its novel design means it can be set up by one operator, making handling fast and easy.
Suitable for road, rail and sea freight, ComboLife 65 is durable and robust. The double-wall structure enables up to 7500 kg stacking load or 4-on-1 piles minimising storage space. Meanwhile, the 60% folding ration of ComboLife 65 allows five stacked columns of folded IBC per truck, ensuring more can be transported at the same time and significantly reducing reverse logistics costs.
In addition, multiple identification and tracking options are available; barcode labels and RFID and IoT pockets enable efficient and secure fleet management. Finally, a Bisphenol-A-free material butterfly valve is available with 250 and 1000L liners, while a disposable liner and valve prevents contamination and supports safe re-use.
Schoeller Allibert produces a range of IBC solutions to enable fast, efficient and hygienic logistics for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. To find out more about ComboLife 65 and other innovations from Schoeller Allibert, please visit www.schoellerallibert.com.
