The Magnum Optimum® has a crucial impact on the internal supply chain of the COVID-19 vaccine

Based on different technological approaches, having a broad portfolio of vaccines maximises the chances of safe and effective vaccines being developed and deployed. Vaccinations save lives. Large-scale vaccination against COVID-19, therefore, a key instrument to control the virus on a global scale.

In the EU to date, 4 safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19 have been authorised for use following approval by the European Medicines Agency. Compared to only 3 vaccines being authorised in the United States.

One of the COVID-19 vaccines is distributed in our Magnum Optimum® 1200 x 1000mm (47.2’’ x 39.42”), a Foldable Large Container (FLC). Using the Magnum Optimum® for internal distribution helps with the efficiency, safety, and costs involved in transporting such high-value, life-saving vaccines.

Our Magnum Optimum® is used to support the internal supply chains and transport the loaded trays of the COVID-19 vials to freezer facilities. The vials are then placed into the freezer, (as seen in the picture above). The FLCs are designed with ergonomic handles, grab points, and collapsible sides, making manual handling easier than ever before.

Our Magnum Optimum® range has a lot of advantages:

Efficient in reverse logistics
It is one of the most efficient reverse logistics solutions: with the lowest folded height, Magnum Optimum® stacks up to 2 erected FLCs and up to 8 folded FLCs in a standard truck, offering a 30% space-saving overall competing FLCs. Saves fuel and reduces carbon footprint. Fully recyclable at the end of its working life.

Optimised storage, handling & distribution
Magnum Optimum® offers outstanding mechanical performance. 750 kg unit load for standard models and up to 1 tonne for reinforced base versions. Stacking load 3200 kg or 4/1.


Hygienic & ease of use
Smooth internal and external wall surfaces avoid water retention and protect products and operators from injury or damage. Non-sequential folding and smooth easy to use locking devices make Magnum Optimum® efficient and easy to handle on the shop floor. Moreover, the Magnum Optimum® is erectable in only 8 seconds.

Available in standardised ISO conform footprints: 1200 x 1000 mm (47.2 x 39.4 inch) and 1200 x 800 mm (47.2 x 31.5 inch). The Magnum Optimum® is going beyond and is also available in different versions (with or without drop doors) and different heights.
