Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco and global provider of temperature-assurance packaging, announced its Certis Platform of Universal Parcel Shippers was awarded First Place as “Most Innovative New Cold Chain Technology” at the IQPC Cold Chain Global Forum. The LD7 Quarter PMC Pallet Shipper was honored as a Runner-Up.
The IQPC Cold Chain Global Forum honors and celebrates innovative, thought-leading professionals and organizations that have exceeded industry standards. The Most Innovative New Cold Chain Technology of the Year award is a software, solution or platform that is breaking new ground in the temperature-controlled arena; offering new levels of supply chain visibility, improved product quality and compliance, and/or reduced costs and temperature excursions.
The Certis Platform of Universal Parcel Shippers are ideal for one-way shipments of temperature-sensitive products and utilize the same universal pack-out configuration regardless of season for refrigerated, CRT and frozen solutions for both 72-hr and 120-hr durations. The product offers operational efficiency and ease of personnel training using ZERO Bench-Time® technology and same pack-out configuration across durations.
The shippers optimize inventory and provide lowest total cost of ownership utilizing only three types of bricks and eight shippers to create 24 shipping solutions across temperature ranges and duration.
The LD7 Quarter PMC Pallet Shipper delivers industry performance, driven by new technology, and offers design simplicity. The patent-pending design features "L"-shaped insulation panels that eliminate corner leaks and drastically reduce edge leaks through interlocking design. In addition, ConvecTECH™ dispersion panels promote natural convection and enable simple pack-out procedures. These innovative new technologies have improved the thermal performance capabilities of a passive pallet shipper while simplifying the pack-out procedures. The LD7 Quarter PMC passive pallet shipper optimized the footprint within a wide-body aircraft further reducing costs.
