US government plans to counter sophisticated terror threats by tightening screening procedures for all air cargo could force time-sensitive cold chain shippers—including the bioscience and pharmaceutical industries—to move to higher-tech container options.
One proven system is temperature-controlled Kodiak Active shipping containers made by Active CC Boxes LLC, said John Howe, the company’s chief executive officer.
“Active CC Boxes LLC has spent thousands of hours researching, developing, creating prototypes, and testing new methods to improve the quality and lengthen the time allotted in the cold chain shipping process,” said Howe.
The result is a line of temperature-controlled boxes that are durable and lockable with the ability to pass through security scanning and maintain temperatures between 2° and 8° C for up to five days. In addition to adding days to allow for security delay, the container provides a longer shipping timeframe. An optional feature enables the sender to download a report of the internal temperature throughout its voyage to ensure that it has remained in specification.
Active’s containers, which are rugged, reliable, and reusable, allow organizations to be confident their package will arrive undamaged with the chain of custody intact, no matter the external circumstances. Research shows the temperature remains within the specified range throughout the five days.
Kingsville TX-headquartered Active CC Boxes LLC’s production facility integrates both training and quality assurance programs to meet the demands of cold chain shipping container production and its customers’ expectations. For more information, visit www.activeccboxes.com.
