The burgeoning demand for temperature-controlled products to be moved safely around the globe shows no sign of letting up; the growing needs of the middle classes in many emerging markets and the rapid development of biopharmaceuticals have both been key contributors.
Perishable goods like pharmaceutical and biological products, a whole gamut of chilled and frozen foods, wine, flowers and chemicals, all need shipping reliably. As a consigner, to meet regulatory compliance and maintain products at either frozen, chilled or ambient temperatures, you essentially have the choice between packing your temperature-controlled shipper using dry ice or cold packs.
While cold packs are generally acknowledged to be the primary choice for maintaining temperature-sensitive shipments at refrigerated or ambient levels, dry ice is often deployed where frozen goods are concerned. However, as it gives off CO2 during sublimation, dry ice is viewed as a hazardous substance and is subject to labelling, handling, storage, shipping and disposal complications.
The Tempack range of cold packs offers a host of reliable, safe, high-performance alternatives. Our pre-qualified cooling packs come in flexible and rigid systems, ranging from the inexpensive to the smart. Each can sustain a specified temperature range for an extended period to preserve the integrity of a temperature-sensitive consignment.
