The investment is the second tranche of funding for the South Carolina-based businesses.

Global Transport Solutions, a logistics firm specialising in the healthcare sector, has received investment worth $150,000 from SC Launch, an agency backed by South Carolina’s development agency SCRA.

The business was accepted into SCRA’s Entrepreneurial Program in 2017. “Global Transplant Solutions is proud to partner with SCRA and the SC Launch Program as we build our commercial business and further develop our proprietary hypothermia-inducing organ procurement product PerfeXslush,” said the company’s CEO John Bruens. “We look forward to future collaborations and expanding our footprint in South Carolina.”
