White paper address pharma shipping conundrum

[ June 15, 2018   //   ]

Temperature controlled packaging specialist Peli BioThermal has released a white paper on market solutions for protecting  temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals while in transit. Titled Active Shipping Containers vs Passive Shipping Containers, it provides guidance on making the optimum choice to eliminate confusion, reduce risk and save money evaluating the two main classes of containers used to ship temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products.

“When it comes to maintaining the clinical efficacy of pharmaceuticals, one of the most important criteria is often temperature,” said Kevin Lawler, vice president of sales at Peli BioThermal and contributor to the new white paper. “While there are many cold chain container options out there, making the best choice — one that reduces risk and is most cost-effective — involves assessing a variety of factors. And, these factors can vary payload to payload. There’s not a one-size-fits all solution.”
