Dry Ice Replenishment Services

Mercury specializes in temperature-sensitive shipping through all major carriers, proactively tracking and troubleshooting exceptions on our clients behalf. 

When shipping through a specialty cold chain service such as the one Mercury provides, dry ice can be replenished while in transit. These temperature-sensitive shipments go on regular commercial airlines, allowing the package to be easily accessed and dry ice replenished at the airport. Particularly with international shipments, where the risk of customs delay is high, this is critical to maintaining the temperature range of your shipment.

When shipping with the regular express carriers, sometimes they are and sometimes they are not able to replenish the dry ice. If the express carrier can access the box and has dry ice on hand, they are sometimes able to replenish it. This varies based on the facility that your shipment is at and its specific location within that facility. Mercury’s specialty cold chain services make this process much easier.

Our team will continuously monitor your dry ice shipment and resolve any issues that may arise along the way to the final destination.
