10 reasons to add reusability to your thermal shipping container

• Consistent temperature stability: All panels contain the same material, allowing for proper and consistent temperature distribution throughout. Insulators containing high R-value allow for additional protection against BTUs.

• Increase durability and eliminate the use of ice, dry ice and gel packs: Phase-change materials have the ability to maintain extreme temperatures, eliminating the use of hazardous dry ice, wet ice and gel packs. Durable component construction allows for extra temperature and shipping protection.

• Reduce number of shipping containers: Increased payload space results in fewer shipping containers needed. Interchangeable components allow for multiple temperature ranges and extended duration to be met, utilizing one shipping container. Provides the ability to reuse containers multiple times.

• Standard pack out = reduce labor costs: Consistent preconditioning and container pack out reduces training, pack out time, overall labor costs.

• Recyclable: More than 90% of the components used in reusable shipping containers are recyclable: Containers can be used multiple times, minimizing waste and recycling fees.

• Enhance performance: Superior component parts = comprehensive solution--the use of phase-change materials allow for tighter temperature control and extended shipping durations, enhancing the overall performance of the shipping container.

• Customization: Shipping container can be customized to meet special temperature ranges. Permits universal co-branding options for branding and marketing.

• Inventory management: Utilize reverse logistics with a closed-loop system, resulting in simple inventory management.

• Reduce freight costs: Reduced dimensional weight, no hazardous material charges, and the elimination of overnight or specialty shipments.

• Reduce excursions: Consistent, reliable temperature throughout the entire container and duration of shipment. Shipping container can be placed in refrigerated hold without depleting performance.
