Rueil-Malmaison, France: – Temperature-controlled logistics and pharmaceutical cold chain packaging specialist Sofrigam S.A., will use the Temperature Controlled Logistics Europe (TCL 2017) conference in London to present latest thinking on cool chain shipping and storage.

Sofrigam is once again a prominent sponsor of the event, which has become a centerpiece of the cool-chain logistics industry.

The company’s exhibition stand at Booths 39/40 at London ExCel, open on Tuesday January 31 and Wednesday February 1.

End to end logistics

The stand will feature Sofrigam’s recently introduced ‘collections’ of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, including the hi-tech iBox insulated shipping container and its ability to maintain product temperature perfectly at between +2 and +8°C.

“We see two core topics that need to be highlighted at TCL 2017,” said Mr. Gilles Labranque, Sofrigam CEO.

“One is undoubtedly the issue of end-to-end pharmaceutical logistics, or how to guarantee maintaining medicines at constant temperatures across the whole supply chain, especially when the logistical circuits are increasingly complex, with multiples pharmaceutical hubs and people involved in logistics,” he explained.

Focus on usage and reuse

“The other key topic for 2017 is reusing insulated packaging solutions, with growing environmental concerns forcing manufacturers in the sector to innovate in order to reduce environmental impact across the logistics chain,” said Labranque.

“Packaging solutions are becoming increasingly sophisticated, manufactured from increasingly resistant materials because the packaging solution must no longer only be considered in terms of use but in terms of usage. Reuse is one of the keys but still poses questions today: lack of standards governing the reuse of packaging, constraints on the management of the return circuit, problems with complex logistical circuits, etc. manufacturers of static refrigerated packaging solutions still have issues to address,” he added.

“These themes have always been at the heart of our expertise. We will be happy to discuss them with our visitors and present our innovative solutions with optimized and secure end-to-end logistics,” said Mr. Labranque.
