Press Release | Sofrigam S.A
MARCH 29, 2019
Rueil Malmaison, France: – Temperature-controlled logistics and pharmaceutical cold chain packaging specialist Sofrigam S.A. will exhibit its sophisticated and secure Pallet Shipper and Parcel Shipper ranges at the upcoming LogiPharma forum in Switzerland.
As a LogiPharma sponsor, Sofrigam will be a prominent presence at the forum, using its high profile to promote the increasing need in cool chain shipping for enhanced security over conditions, tampering and data as well as greater traceability covering ever stage of the logistics chain.
Sofrigam will present its insulated shipping and packaging solutions from its exhibition stand at Booth 50 at the Montreux Music & Convention Center. A centerpiece of its display will be the new Pallet Shipper, compliant with US and EU shipping standards and PAG/PMC airfreight platforms.
Available assembled or flat-packed, fitting the Sofrigam Pallet Shipper is designed to optimize logistics by allowing faster preparation and loading as well as increasing sustainability and reducing TCO in cold chain logistics.
Initial and Elite parcel shippers
Sofrigam’s display will also feature its Initial and Elite parcel shippers for high security shipment of thermally sensitive pharma products, allowing optimum configuration to environmental conditions and season. Initial provides an ideal ratio between price and quality for higher bulk shipments, maximizing payload volume while minimizing weight.
The Elite parcel shipper emphasizes total temperature security for ultra-sensitive and long-distance consignments, maintaining controlled temperatures for up to 160 hours.
All Sofrigam pallet shippers and parcel shippers are tested and qualified to international ISTA logistics standards.
Patient centric cooling bags
With increasing priority across the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries for individualized patient-centric approaches, Sofrigam will also be featuring its cooling bags specially designed to meet individual patient needs. Ergonomic, easy to use, easy to transport and with durations from few hours to several days, these bags provide perfect solutions for day-to-day use for patients with chronic conditions.
Maximizing security and traceability
The Sofrigam team in Montreux will be led by Global sales manager Alain Schuerwegen and Project Manager Peter Buchanan, from Sofrigam UK and Ireland.
“The LogiPharma Forum has become one of the most important European events for our industry and as a leading provider of pharmaceutical temperature controlled packaging solutions, we wanted to be here and to support this event,” said Alain Schuerwegen.
“We will be taking advantage of our presence in Montreux to emphasize what we now see as the most urgent issue for this sector – maximizing security in all its forms right across the cool chain,” Mr. Schuerwegen emphasized.
Focusing on fundamentals
Peter Buchanan added: “We will have three main messages for the forum. The first is that the need to ensure temperature and physical security and traceability of shipment are now front and center in cold chain management. The second is that ensuring integrity means embracing GDP compliant solutions and looking for opportunities to leverage from IT and data. And finally, that logistics managers need to focus on fundamentals: maximizing payload volume while minimizing weight and overhead costs of packaging, preparation and handling at every stage.”
“Sustainability is becoming an ever increasing concern and that means paying more attention to reusability and environmentally friendly materials,” Mr. Buchanan noted.
