Temperature controlled supply chain Network

High performance thermal packaging solutions


Ready to load & go


120 h performance upon thermal container arrival

Managing a fleet of thermal shipping containers or boxes and the delivery of single and multi-use passive temperature controlled packaging materials can be a challenge. Storing and assembling the materials takes time and space, both of which are valuable resources. Self-assembly or systems with complicated handling create potential risk for deviations and often require extensive operating training.

In our “load & go” rental service, vacuum insulated shipping containers are delivered preconditioned to your sending destination. When the container arrives, simply open the door and load your goods. The rental period starts when the temperature controlled shipping container is delivered ready to use. All this is in a single rental price.
