– On Friday, July 25, TNT was asked by Vet-I-Pharma to urgently deliver a formula milk product to Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg, Germany. The formula milk was needed for a baby walrus  – the first ever born in a German zoo – that didn’t gain enough weight and would have died without the extra milk. A TNT courier delivered the product to the zookeeper before 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the baby walrus is by now doing well.

Vet-I-Pharma BV (Deurne, NL) is a trading company that offers medicines and special food products for animals, among which a broad range of formula milk products. By mixing different formulas it is possible to compose a product that closely resembles the natural milk of the animal’s mother.
