How cool chain packaging plays a vital role in saving lives

We all know the vital role pharmaceuticals play in saving lives across the globe. However, just as important is the part cool chain packaging has in the whole process.

Whether it’s vaccines, antibiotics or diagnostics, these life-saving medicines often go through long sea or air journeys to get where they are needed. Proper storage and transport temperatures are essential to maintain the product’s efficacy and patient safety.

Your reputation is on the line every time your product is in transit. That products arrive in perfect condition every time is non-negotiable.

With the potential for delays and disruptions at any point in the supply chain, it is a major headache for pharmaceutical companies.

But not anymore.

Thermogard’s high-performing cool chain packaging solutions protect temperature-sensitive shipments whether it’s ambient or chilled, or a long or short transit. The good news is, Thermogard is continuing to source and create environmentally friendly temperature control packaging, whether its compostable, recyclable, or that can even be reused.

Advantages of Thermogard’s cool chain packaging

Pharmaceutical products mostly need to be kept at a constant temperature between 2-8 degrees. Even a slight temperature variation can result in the drugs becoming unusable or even a health hazard.

The challenge for pharmaceutical companies is finding a solution that not only maintains temperature control but is also cost-effective. With air and sea freight costs largely dependent on size and weight, achieving peak performance while keeping costs down is essential.

Thermogard is a critical supply chain partner for drug manufacturers and distributors worldwide.

Here are just some of the reasons Thermogard is a trusted partner to many.
