Temperature-Controlled Shipping

Temperature-Sensitive Shipping Is a Vital Aspect of Supply Chain Management

The integrity of certain items, like life-saving medications and diagnostic specimen samples, can be compromised without proper temperature control.

Careful planning and coordination are critical to ensure the necessary equipment and processes are in place to maintain the desired temperature throughout the shipment process. This may include special packaging materials such as dry ice and phase change materials or refrigerated trucks and storage containers.

Temperature-sensitive shipping also requires constant monitoring to ensure that any sudden changes in temperature can be addressed immediately, such as when your shipment is held in customs or due to airline flight delays or cancellations. In such situations, we will assist with dry ice delivery and replenishment.
