Sanofi Pasteur awards supply chain partner

Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of sanofi-aventis Group, recently presented a special award to Envirotainer for achieving 48 consecutive months without a product loss.

The presentation ceremony in Toronto, Canada, was organized and hosted by Sherman Cheung, supply chain director, and Franck Leroux, vice president industrial operations at Sanofi Pasteur.

“We shipped millions of vaccines around the world through this partnership and while we encountered various issues along the way, we did not lose a single dose during the past 48 consecutive months. This accomplishment can only be achieved through an effective partnership and through the dedicated efforts from everyone on both sides. Innovation, communication, and continuous improvement efforts make this unique partnership work,” said Cheung.

Envirotainer, maker of 'active' temperature-controlled air cargo containers, was recognized along with other Sanofi Pasteur partners, including Air France and Atlas/Logfret, for outstanding contributions and dedication towards cold chain management. The award is for the Toronto based tradelanes to various cities where all three partners have been working together.
