SEPTEMBER 21, 2018
Rueil Malmaison, France: – Temperature-controlled logistics and pharmaceutical cold chain packaging specialist Sofrigam S.A. will showcase its new range of temperature-controlled Pallet Shippers when it returns to the Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Global Forum (CCGF) in Philadelphia in late September.
Sofrigam has been a leading sponsor of the event for more than seven years and will again be a high profile presence at the 2018 CCGF conference, exhibiting from its stand at Booth 110, which will display will showcase a representative range of the company’s new generation of temperature-controlled shipping and packaging solutions.
New flat form XXL Pallet Shipper
For 2018, the display will focus on the latest generation of Sofrigam Pallet Shippers, which revolutionized pharma cold chain shipping when they were first introduced more than 30 years ago. Ongoing development by Sofrigam has now produced an XXL Pallet Shipper than can be delivered and stored in flat form, able to be very easily erected in minutes by a single person, as the Sofrigam team will demonstrate in Philadelphia.
“Pharma products are completely secured during the assembly because, in contrast to similar solutions, pharma products are only loaded once the temperature-controlled container is assembled and stabilized to avoid any temperature excursion and completely secure temperature sensitive products,” said Sofrigam Commercial Director Alain Schuerwegen, who will lead the team at CCGF 2018.
“As a leading provider of pharmaceutical temperature-controlled packaging solutions in Europe that is also well implanted in the US with its own production site here, Sofrigam could hardly miss CCGF 2018, which is so focused on the life sciences supply chain,” added .Sofrigam’s North America Business Manager Jean Vezina, who will also be on stand throughout the show.
Sofrigam will also be showing an integrated range of cold chain containers that meet every part of the product journey from manufacturer to patient, maintaining temperatures between +2°C and +8°Cthroughout. These include the ‘smart’ iBox semi-active containers with an integrated logger guaranteeing pharma products remain at +5°C for more than 120 hours. The latest iBox is even more secure with a real-time Track and Trace functionality offering total visibility across the whole supply chain.
Total cool chain protection
“Now you can check your product integrity at any time to know in real time where the shipment is, what the external temperature is and what the internal temperature is. If there’s a break in the cold chain or the container is tampered with, an alarm will alert you right away so now you can track your life sciences shipment anywhere, anytime, on any device,” explained Peter Buchanan, Sofrigam’s UK Business Manager.
At CCGF 2018, Sofrigam will also show its largest range of cooling bags specially designed to meet patient needs.
“Ergonomic, easy to use, easy to transport and with durations from few hours to several days, these bags are the perfect solution for a daily use. Patients with chronic diseases now have an efficient and easy solution to follow them in their daily life. These are real patient-centric cooling bags,” Mr. Buchanan commented.
“In summary, we will be able to show the quality, purchase, logistics and cold chain decision makers who attend CCGF that we can meet their four key priorities: cost-effective cold chain packaging that minimize TCO across their logistic operations, secured protection traceability of shipments, full GDP compliance and enhanced patient-centricity,” said Alain Schuerwegen.
