Peli BioThermal, a global leader providing the broadest and most innovative range of temperature-controlled packaging solutions serving the life sciences industry, now offers Credo™ on Demand for pallet shippers.
The rental service, which uses passive Credo Xtreme™ pallet shippers, provides options such as pre-conditioning and end of rental drop-off at an expanding number of worldwide service centres, including Europe, North America and Asia.
The program offers 12-day standard rentals, including qualification reports and clean, freshly refurbished Credo Xtreme shippers, with dedicated stock available at each location. Customers can pick up and drop off a shipper at Peli BioThermal's service centres or may return it to a regional consolidation centre for an additional fee.
"With a strong focus on cost-reduction, pharmaceutical manufactures, and their logistics providers, are looking for alternatives to active containers," explained Kevin Lawler, Vice President of Sales at Pelican BioThermal.
"By offering a range of services, including preconditioning, at a number of global service centres, we are able to simplify the process of transporting temperature-sensitive payloads, effectively reducing costs. We offer a generous rental period and have a ready supply of containers for both customers and partners."
With outer dimensions of 1219x1016x1320mm and payload dimensions of 1046x843x1008mm (Volume - 806 Litres), combined with duration of 120+ hours (ISTA 7), the Credo Xtreme™ offers a viable solution for a variety of shipping environments. Use of passive Credo Xtreme pallet shippers also offers a less costly and more manageable alternative to active shipper systems.
"As the leading supply chain logistics provider in the industry, Marken added the Credo Xtreme bulk shipper to the packaging solutions we offer to clients," explained Dan Bell, Vice President, Regulatory Compliance and Technical Affairs at Marken. "Reusable, passive temperature control solutions are often preferable over the active shipper equivalent, especially for simplified implementation and to help clients reduce overall costs for specific projects."
