Chennai, India / Stuttgart, Germany, January 25, 2021 — Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) has unveiled the BharatBenz’ BSafe Express’, a specialized reefer truck designed for the safe transportation of COVID-19 vaccines. Equipped with state-of-the-art connectivity, the BSafe Express uses newly developed refrigeration units to ensure the vaccines’ temperature and stability are accurately monitored and maintained at all delivery stages. The reefer is mounted on the BharatBenz 2823R heavy-duty chassis.

Mr. Satyakam Arya, Managing Director, and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, was present at the truck’s premiere in the Indian capital Delhi. According to him, “The combination of a strong, reliable chassis with a lightweight, insulated reefer and state-of-the-art connectivity device makes BharatBenz’s ‘BSafe Express’ the perfect solution to India’s cold-chain infrastructure challenge. With this truck, we can deliver vaccines in perfect condition to even the most remote destinations, bringing the hope of a return to normalcy to over 1.3 billion people.”

India has recently started its corona vaccination campaign to vaccinate 300 million people by July 2021. The BharatBenz BSafe Express offers a solution to Indian logistics companies to contribute to the nation’s goal of bringing COVID under control as quickly as possible. A daunting challenge in the second-most populous country in the world.

• Refrigerated container and digital solutions enable quick and safe transportation of vaccines across India.

Automotive system solutions provider Motherson Group supplies the refrigerated container. It is made from Glass Reinforced Plastic, XPS Foam, and other carefully-chosen materials that ensure the product is strong, water-resistant, and non-corrosive, yet lightweight and highly insulated. The container can be assembled locally in as little as 96 hours, making it a much more practical solution than conventional products, which can take three or more weeks to deliver.

With purpose-built IoT sensors integrated inside the container, fleet managers can monitor temperature, humidity, shock, tilt, and tamper. They can also adjust the temperature as required and sound the alarm if a problem occurs. It further integrates with QR Code tracking of all stock on board so that users can check the location, status, and history of each package. Paired with BharatBenz’s ‘Truckonnect’ telematics platform, the BSafe Express offers vaccine distributors absolute peace of mind with real-time tracking of both the vehicle and its precious cargo.
