8 May 2014 - TNT Express is about to celebrate ten years of working for Eurogen, a leading provider of equine semen freezing storage and distribution services. Based in Carentan, in the French Manche district, Eurogen trusts TNT for all deliveries of cooled or frozen semen.

The region of lower Normandy (Basse Normandie) is renowned for its horse industry. The region collects and distributes equine semen throughout France, particularly during the natural breeding season of the horse, between March and August.

To guarantee the cold chain and secure the samples, Eurogen and TNT use cooling packaging. Cooled semen is transported in qualified insulated bags and always delivered the next day. Frozen semen is transported in liquid nitrogen dry shipper containers.

In 2013, TNT Express delivered 3,700 shipments of equine semen in France for Eurogen. The first months of 2014 are showing an increase compared with the same period of last year.
