About TempTrust Insulated Shipping Boxes
Insulated shipping boxes are used in a cold supply chain where the product is maintained within the specified temperature range from the first conception to last mile. It is often used in industries where products need to stay within a certain temperature range to maintain or extend their shelf life.
The cold chain is important to industries that deal with pharmaceuticals, specialty drugs, blood/tissue, food, and chemicals. To ensure that the cold chain remains unbroken, it is important to choose the right cooling and insulating solution.
Insulated shipping boxes, more commonly known as coolers or shippers, are similar in some ways to the coolers available in the market for temporary storage of food and drinks. However, insulated shipping boxes are typically qualified and validated to hold temperatures for specific lengths of time. This makes them ideal for shipping temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals.
