Having been validated to transport critical high-value cargo for the hazmat and pharmaceutical industry, Cold Box’s active pallet shippers offer a custom approach ideal for LTL biotechnology transport.
As biotechnology primarily utilizes sensitive living organisms or derivatives of to produce or modify specific products, temperature-sensitive transportation logistics can be a challenge. From packaging and maintaining an acceptable temperature set point for the freight to planning for inevitable delays in transport to the cloudy uncertainty of traditional refrigerated or reefer trucking, traditional biotechnology transport can be costly, time-consuming, and result in an overall compromise of the high-value biotech freight. One of the main issues with transporting temperature-sensitive cargo for the biotechnology industry, is the compliance and adherence to the specific product’s temperature set point. With typical refrigerated or reefer trucking, the payload is subjected to variances in temperature caused by how full the trailer is packed, how many times the door is opened, and where the cargo is located within the back of the truck. To address these common concerns, the palletized Cold Box active shipper has revolutionized temperature controlled biotechnology transport.
With precise temperature control (±1⁰C) and custom temperature set points of -20⁰C (-4⁰F) to confident controlled room temperature, the biotech industry can now ship their temperature-sensitive products in a temperature controlled self container shipper alongside other non-refrigerated LTL freight, resulting in huge cost savings. To account for the inevitable delays that occur in transit, the Cold Box active pallet shipper also runs on a rechargeable battery, offering 150 hours+ of autonomous operation and using your smartphone or tablet, the shipper’s built-in GPS and GSM features allow access to real-time communication and monitoring of payload data and shipment location. While traditional refrigerated trucking offers zero to limited tracking of shipments, the Cold Box features specific 24/7 tracking of payload and ambient temperatures, humidity, pressure, light exposure, vibration, and package orientation and offer a concise, summary report at the end of the trip.
In addition, Cold Box also features national depots in major shipping hubs, making pick up and drop off of your active temperature controlled pallet shipper as convenient as possible. In terms of cost, time, environmental impact, and peace of mind, no other temperature controlled trucking service can compete with the Cold Box active pallet shipper, particularly for temperature sensitive custom critical biotechnology transport.
