Peli BioThermal has launched a “reusable and flexible” temperature-controlled shipping solution.
‘Crēdo Go’ is designed to adapt to unique customer programmes, as well as to help pharmaceutical companies reach environmental, social and governance goals, cost reduction targets and operational performance indicators, Peli BioThermal said.
The shipping solution combines customer collaboration and data-driven optimisation in a portfolio of shipper options, the company added. Each shipper is supplied with 2-, 4- or 6-TIC configurations to dial thermal duration up or down and switch between open and tight temperature control to meet typical and complex shipping lane profiles.
New box build automation technology offers increased throughput and capacity potential, Peli BioThermal said, with the aim of reducing lead times for new shipper configurations. A “simple, repeatable and accurate” pack-out process aims to reduce packing time, increase daily throughput and minimise assembly error.
Additionally, Peli BioThermal said ‘TIC BridgeGuard’ technology is utilised to “distribute the phase change material coolant to where it is most needed to reduce the impact of thermal bridging without sacrificing payload space or increasing chargeable shipper weight”.
“The number of commercially approved pharmaceutical products that require strict temperature control is growing rapidly. And we understand that discovery, clinical trials and commercialisation require different solutions,” said Phil Gyori, CEO of Pelican Products, the parent company of Peli BioThermal.
“Crēdo Go brings together Peli BioThermal’s long-trusted technology and modern design innovation to improve payload protection, increase component longevity and minimise a programme’s carbon footprint.”
Users of Crēdo Go work with a dedicated product specialist at Peli BioThermal “to identify opportunities for improvement and cost reduction” by collecting customer-specific data points to input into Peli’s ‘Trufit’ optimisation software. This analysis tool utilises customer data to build an optimal solution portfolio. ‘Crēdo ProEnvision’ software then provides order, shipment and maintenance support to “measure and continually improve” programme performance.
Crēdo Go reusable shippers accommodate payload sizes from 2.5 litres to 83 litres and temperature ranges from frozen to controlled room temperature. Shipping durations span 24 – 120+ hours. All sizes are available through Peli BioThermal’s ‘Crēdo on Reserve’ rental programme.
