Peli BioThermal, the life science industry’s partner from discovery to distribution, has revealed its newest reusable, flexible temperature controlled shipping solution. Crēdo Go is designed to adapt to unique customer programmes, as well as to help pharmaceutical companies reach environmental, social and governance goals, cost reduction targets and operational performance indicators.
“The number of commercially approved pharmaceutical products that require strict temperature control is growing rapidly. And we understand that discovery, clinical trials and commercialisation require different solutions,” said Phil Gyori, CEO of Pelican Products, Inc. parent company of Peli BioThermal. “Crēdo Go brings together Peli BioThermal’s long-trusted technology and modern design innovation to improve payload protection, increase component longevity and minimise a programme’s carbon footprint.”
Peli BioThermal’s newest shipping solution combines customer collaboration and data-driven optimisation to propose a portfolio of shipper options that meet unique business and programme requirements. Each shipper is supplied with 2-, 4- or 6-TIC configurations to dial thermal duration up or down and switch between open and tight temperature control to meet typical and complex shipping lane profiles.
New box build automation technology offers increased throughput and capacity potential with greatly reduced lead times for new shipper configurations while a simple, repeatable and accurate pack-out process reduces packing time, increases daily throughput and minimises assembly error. Additionally, TIC BridgeGuard technology distributes the phase change material coolant to where it is most needed to reduce the impact of thermal bridging without sacrificing payload space or increasing chargeable shipper weight.
Crēdo Go users begin their product journey by working with a dedicated product specialist to identify opportunities for improvement and cost reduction by collecting customer-specific data points to input into Peli BioThermal’s Trufit optimisation software. This analysis tool utilises customer data to build an optimal solution portfolio that meets the needs, goals and performance metrics of any programme. Once a programme is up and running, Crēdo ProEnvision software provides order, shipment and maintenance support to measure and continually improve programme performance.
Crēdo Go reusable shippers accommodate payload sizes from 2.5 litres to 83 litres and temperature ranges from frozen to controlled room temperature. Shipping durations span 24 – 120+ hours. All sizes are available through Peli BioThermal’s Crēdo on Reserve rental programme, which provides an easy-to-follow process for return to the organisation’s high-volume service centres, where the majority of the shipper is reused and the rest is recycled.
