Seasonal vs. Universal Packouts: Pros and Cons

Before designing or choosing an off-the-shelf temperature-controlled shipping solution, one needs to consider whether to use a seasonal or universal packout. This decision can be easily overlooked, yet can drastically change the direct cost, weight and size of the packout, as well as the freight cost. A seasonal packout is a thermal package that has

Effectively Conditioning Bulk Refrigerants

When using passive temperature-controlled containers, it is necessary to pre-condition the components before packing. Generally, the components must be stabilized at specific temperatures. Typically, the outer containers and dunnage are held at room temperature. However, the refrigerants (such as gel packs or Phase Change Materials) need to be refrigerated (2°C to 8°C) and/or frozen (-20°C).

From Farm to Fork – The Global Food Cold Chain

Globalization is changing the way in which we produce, distribute and consume food. Along with the growing global population and the rising middle class in many countries comes the need for transporting food to densely populated areas over longer distances. Indeed, food security is becoming an increasingly important issue in global supply networks. If not
