Peli BioThermal has launched an online learning platform to help customers and distributors build proficiency in temperature controlled packaging technology.

    The ‘School of Cool’ training programme provides on-demand, self-service training. Peli BioThermal noted that not only is demand increasing for temperature controlled packaging options, in-person training is not currently possible.

    “The events of 2020 require rapid change and innovation for businesses, as does serving a global network,” said Peli BioThermal’s president David Williams.

    “School of Cool shows our continued commitment to ensuring our customers, distributors and new employees have access to information on how to use our high-performance temperature controlled packaging when they need it most.”

    The first four training modules in the School of Cool platform are:

    • What is temperature controlled packaging? – introduces new and potential customers to the temperature controlled packaging industry and the mechanical properties of insulation.
    • Types of temperature controlled packaging – outlines the types of temperature controlled packaging and optimal use case for each, including payload capacities and temperature ranges.
    • Phase change material – highlights the types of phase change materials and how they maintain designated temperature ranges for the duration of product transport.
    • Phase change material conditioning – discusses how to prepare temperature controlled packaging coolants for use prior to pack out.

    Peli BioThermal said it planned to add further modules, addressing product temperature ranges, parcels versus pallets, dry ice shippers and its new ‘NanoCool’ push button cooling technology.
