Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco and a global provider of temperature-assurance packaging, expands the Certis® brand of one-way shipping solutions to include a 2-day platform for the express distribution of pharmaceutical and biological products.
Similar to the award-winning Certis® 3-Day & 5-Day Platform, the Certis® 2-Day Platform uses the same packout for 2-8°C, 15-25°C and frozen shipments. Using just three types of refrigerants and four shippers to create 12 solutions, the Certis® 2-Day Platform maximizes the number of solutions while minimizing the number of components.
The new platform is sized to accommodate 7, 13, 27 and 56 L of product. Each of the new options features a year-round pack-out designed for use in both hot and cold seasons.
When designing the Certis® 2-Day platform, the company focused on minimizing overall cost of ownership. They are cost-effective and aim to deliver additional savings through operational efficiencies. With the use of the company’s ZERO Bench-Time® technology, customers can immediately pack out each solution and reduce their assembly time and space requirements.
In combination with the Certis® 3-Day and 5-Day platform of solutions, the Certis® product line now offers a complete portfolio of temperature ranges, durations and payload sizes.
The Certis 2-Day Platform is designed to Sonoco ThermoSafe’s ISC Regional™ ambient temperature profile for short-term shipments and is available in both U.S. and European facilities.
