Conqueror Barcelona saves a life by moving an urgent shipment of bone marrow

They shipped the bone marrow required for a transplant by air from Spain to Germany

Airtransa SA, Conqueror member in Barcelona, Spain, has recently moved a lifesaving shipment consisting of human bone marrow. They transported the delicate shipment via air freight from Barcelona to Frankfurt, Germany. The sensitive cargo was sent from the United States to Valencia, Spain, for additional treatment. Afterward, it was sent from Valencia to Madrid by an exclusive truck. Finally, from Madrid, Airtransa exported it to Frankfurt via Barcelona by air.

The shipment required a lot of effort on the part of CQR Barcelona who had to coordinate with different parties like the carrier, terminal, airline, etc. Additionally, they had to confirm with the terminal to not x-ray the cargo because of its delicate nature. For this, they had to obtain a letter from the clinic declaring the sensitivity of the cargo before requesting exemption from an x-ray.

As stated by Dimos Economeas, the Business Development Manager of Airtransa, “It was a complicated operation in terms of timing as there were too many things to consider. Nevertheless, we made it happen! We are delighted to have successfully executed a shipment that could potentially save a life.”

Perishable shipment by Domax Logistics


As explained by Mr. Bruce Li, General Manager of Domax Logistics, “Although the concept of transporting perishables seems simple enough, it involves many complications. This is because the slightest loophole in the transportation process could spoil the food products. We believe time is the key factor in these kinds of shipments. For this reason, we made all the preparations round the clock to ensure the delivery professionally and safely. To make sure that the cargo stays fresh and intact, we had to take several things into account like packaging, temperature, humidity, and other factors.”

Additionally, Domax had to provide some specific documentation like Phytosanitary Certificate to the customs authorities. Phytosanitary certificates are issued to indicate that consignments of some regulated articles meet the specified phytosanitary import requirements. It also certifies that the goods conform with the certifying statement of the appropriate model certificate. These include commodities such as plants, bulbs, tubers, or seeds for propagation, fruits and vegetables, cut flowers and branches, grain, and growing medium.

“We are a young enterprise with an experienced team. Most of our staff have more than 10 years experience in the logistics industry. This combined with our precise and exclusive services allows us to efficiently handle delicate and complex shipments like this one,” adds Mr. Li.

Congratulations to Domax Logistics and all the best for their future endeavours!
