Cold Chain Packaging Logistics & Solutions

Articles cover trends and processes related to Cold Chain packaging Systems. Cold Chain logistics refer to the storage and distribution of products that pass through a temperature-controlled supply chain. Key topics include shipping, packaging materials, distribution monitoring, temperature-controlled healthcare products.

The PharmaPort™ 360 from Cool Containers is an active hybrid container. What that means is that it’s designed to hold one pallet of product, and is set to maintain a temperature range for temperature-sensitive products. A client would lease the containers from UPS, and we would deliver them to the client pre-cooled. They would put their pallet load in there, close it, seal it, and make sure the temperature is set correctly. Then it is transported from origin to destination.
