Moving temperature-sensitive goods safely through the cold chain is an important – and sometimes critical – aspect of business for many industry sectors.

The knowledge, management and precision needed to guarantee constant temperature control in transit for pharmaceutical, biological, chemical or agro-food products, for example, cannot be overstated. Given the valuable nature of these goods (many of them are destined for human consumption), extremely rigorous demands are put on the transportation environments they experience through the entire logistics process. Preserving product integrity is an utmost priority, both in terms of distribution and subsequent sales.

To cater for the individual characteristics of different temperature-sensitive goods, Tempack works in close collaboration with customers to develop all manner of customised solutions. We also provide an extensive range of standardised options for use when appropriate. Variations in format and operational temperature ranges ensure transit autonomy and allow industry compliance and customer protocols to be comfortably met. This level of reliability throughout the cold chain offers better product quality control and a significant reduction in associated costs.

Life Sciences

The inherent properties in vaccines, clinical trials, biological samples and infectious or potentially infectious specimens add great complexity to the logistics processes for pharmaceutical, biotechnology and contact research organisations (CROs). The abundant and rigorous nature of national and international regulations (ADR, IATA, OACI, IMDG, RID) only add to the challenges.

This is exactly why so many leading companies in the life sciences sector continue to place their trust in Tempack’s solutions. The renowned quality and depth of our standard and customised packaging systems, as well as our experience in this sector, offer great peace of mind. Not only do we guarantee the efficacy of clinical trials in transit, but we have the capability to continually optimise volume. By reducing the total weight of consignments to their minimum, we help our customers achieve significant savings in their transportation costs.
