Specialised transport solutions for temperature-sensitive, fragile and high-value goods in Austria*


When it comes to temperature-sensitive, fragile and high-value products, it is essential that you can rely on the experience and expertise of professionals. No matter what services you need to transport your temperature-sensitive goods safely and quickly, trans-o-flex is the right partner for you.

With our actively temperature-controlled network, we facilitate the temperature-controlled distribution of pharmaceuticals in the range 2 °C to 8 °C and/or 15 °C to 25 °C not only in Austria, but also in Germany via our Eurotemp network with partners in four other European countries: Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Shipments are transported and documented in accordance with EU regulations for the transport of pharmaceuticals. These EU GDPs require the highest standards of safety and security, cleanliness, reliability and transparency.

Unlike parcel services and groupage carriers, trans-o-flex delivers consolidated parcels and pallets. trans-o-flex offers express delivery before 12 noon, special services such as deliveries to home patients, shipment consolidation or CO2 offsetting for the transport of your shipments with its co2de green service.

*These services are provided by trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria GmbH.

The constant temperature maintained during active shipping is independent of the outside temperature and, unlike passive shipping, is also independent of additional aids. This means that transport with active temperature control is cost effective, sustainable and environmentally friendly as no special packaging is required.
