Reusable shippers greatly improve environmental impact and provide cost efficiencies.

Almac’s Clinical Services business unit has announced the addition of refrigerated reusable shippers to its trusted portfolio of solutions for the management and global distribution of temperature controlled clinical supplies.

Available as an option to replace single-use shippers for refrigerated shipments, 2°C to 8°C, the innovative, reusable shippers can significantly reduce shipping and storage costs while maintaining payload capacity.

This latest addition is complementary to an already extensive range of cold chain management solutions which include a global team of Cold Chain Experts, a strategic depot network, over 3,000 pallets of dedicated, refrigerated storage facilities, and a proprietary Shipping Temperature Electronic Monitoring System (STEMS) allowing for same day temperature data.

Features of the reusable shippers include identical product space with a smaller overall volume than single-use shippers, thus reducing shipping and storage costs.

In addition, the environmental impact caused by single-use shippers is virtually eliminated, and clients will benefit from the removal of tedious destruction processes often required with single-use shippers.

The refrigerated shippers have been verified by Almac Quality for temperature accuracy and meet Almac’s rigorous quality standards.

Commenting on the latest enhancement, Leon Supplee, Director of Logistics at Almac’s US headquarters in Souderton, PA stated, “With an increase in biologics and temperature sensitive shipments, Almac strives to offer the best in temperature-controlled distribution. The addition of reusable shippers is one more way that Almac has risen to meet the changing needs of our clients and provide further efficiencies in the supply chain.”

Almac also plans to release reusable options for controlled, ambient shipments, 15°C to 25°C and frozen shipments, -25°C to -15°C in the near future.
