"Movianto has supported us very successfully in our entry into the German market since 2021. They have taken care of the entire warehouse logistics for us, from storage with quality control to pick and pack of shipping orders and returns management, as well as organising delivery to veterinarians in Germany and Austria," says Paul Thiou, Managing Director of Berlin-based TVM GmbH. "We are now entering the second stage of our development and will continue to expand our portfolio and volumes." Thiou plans to double the shipping volume, which currently comprises up to 14,000 packs per month, over the next few years. To date, TVM has mainly sold products in the ambient range (15 to 25 degrees Celsius) in Germany. Now, other products requiring a cold chain are being added. Thiou: "This also includes stem cell products, which not only require correct cooling at 2 to 8 degrees, but are also time-critical." TVM has been active in the UK since 2016.
For Dennis Spamer, Managing Director of Movianto for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH), the development of TVM confirms a clear trend in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry: "The demand for temperature-controlled logistics, especially in the refrigeration sector, is growing strongly. In order to be able to offer sufficient capacity for this, we have expanded our cold storage capacity at the German sites alone to more than 8,000 pallet spaces in recent years. And the next expansion stage is already planned." For smaller consignments, Movianto also utilises the option of storing them in validated refrigerators. This is also the case in Ginsheim-Gustavsburg, where all TVM products are stored in both ambient and refrigerated areas.

Less plastic: new filling material chosen for parcels at the request of recipients

According to Spamer, there have been numerous special features in the collaboration with TVM. For example, the Movianto Managing Director reports that the filling material for the parcels was changed at the request of TVM recipients. "Many vets had reported back to TVM that they would prefer recycled paper instead of bubble wrap as the filling material for their orders because it is easier to dispose of and more environmentally friendly. We then made suggestions to TVM and finally converted a packing line accordingly."
Last year, a special order stood out from the normal deliveries: "TVM donated products for Ukraine and we organised the logistics for this delivery." Last but not least, the regular review meetings with the customer were very pleasing. "We have agreed certain quality indicators with the client. And over the last 20 months, we have consistently exceeded these KPIs."
