Recently Cold Box and the HSV (Huntsville) logistics center of global freight forwarder, Panalpina, are working together to service client’s LTL temperature controlled pharma shipping needs including Cold Box Express’ PFF or Protect From Freeze services which offers precise freight freeze protection for cold sensitive biopharmaceutical payloads ensuring safe delivery in extreme winter environments.
According to SFO Air Export Manager, Tony Mao:
“[Panalipina] is handling pharma products that have a required specific temp range between +15°C to +25°C or +2°C to +8°C that must be maintained during transport. The biggest challenge with LTL pharma shipping is the availability and accessibility of refrigerated trucks to safely handle these type of pharmaceuticals products.”
With the use of Cold Box, not only is there transparency throughout the entire trip with the active pallet shipper’s built-in GPS and GSM allowing access to near real-time communication and monitoring of payload data and shipment location, but Cold Box maintains a network of national depots in major shipping hubs, making pick up and drop off of your temperature controlled active pallet shipper as convenient as possible.
