Samples of killer whales from Harstad to San Diego, USA.

MBE Stories

A research institute contacted us to send frozen samples taken from a killer whales in Andøya to a well-known laboratory in San Diego, USA. The samples have a short shelf life and must be frozen all the way to the laboratory. We agree with the customer that we will arrange a box of dry ice that we send to a partner in Harstad, and the customer delivers the samples there to shorten the delivery time. Our partner ensures that it is delivered to EVE airport and forwarded with DHL out of Oslo on the same day. The samples will be delivered in the United States within the time limit.

Mail Boxes Etc can send shipments through DHL Medical Express. This is a solution suitable for transporting time and temperature sensitive shipments of eg biological samples (UN3373). With DHL Medical Express you can send:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine samples
  • Biopsies
  • Or other types of samples that need to be sent very properly

We have packing material for both room-tempered and frozen shipments, and we also provide dry ice (UN1845) for your shipment if needed. We further ensure that the shipment is properly packaged and labelled.

DHL Medical express shipments are part of DHL’s regular express network but have the highest priority. That is, these shipments will always be the first ones to be dispatched upon arrival at the destination, and DHL will follow up if there is any deviation in the delivery plan.
