Softbox presents IoT connected cold chain packaging

Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire, UK, 2nd April 2019 – Softbox, a leading global innovator and provider of temperature control packaging for the life science and logistics industries, has announced the introduction of a new concept to bring IoT and connected digital transformation to the pharmaceutical and clinical trial cold chain distribution.

Softbox is leveraging emerging technologies and incorporating them into its temperature control packaging systems for day-to-day cold chain distribution. These technologies can help make better and quicker decisions, reduce waste in the supply chain and ultimately provide pharmaceutical companies and patients with medications on time, and in the best condition possible.

Softbox’s IoT project, developed in collaboration with market-leading companies, focuses on providing transparency on every step of the cold chain distribution process, from dispatch through to dispensing to the patient.

This new project, in combination with the already available Softbox rental program, solves many of the challenges pharmaceutical companies face today, such as sustainability regulations, cost-reductions, excursion management and real-time visibility of temperature, location, shock and light exposure.

Softbox is presenting this connected IoT project at LogiPharma on the 9th -11th April, in Switzerland.

Richard Wood, Director of Connected Digital Technologies at Softbox commented: “IoT technology brings enhanced transparency, accuracy and responsiveness to the whole delivery cycle. Visibility and traceability are top priorities for the cold-chain logistics industry, Softbox’s new IoT products and services aim to deliver the best combination of packaging and technology for our clients.”

SilverQuilt SQ6: Advancing multi layer technology in the cold chain

SilverQuilt SQ6: Advancing multi layer technology in the cold chain

Following on from the success of our market leading SilverQuilt™material, we have continued to develop our range of multi-layered materials to create SQ6.

SQ6 is the latest development in our product portfolio. Its innovative composition is thinner, yet retains high performance. With its unique combination of 6 layers, SQ6 is designed to negate radiation, convection and conduction in a superior way to conventional insulation materials.

Providing more protection due to its insulating and highly reflective layers, SQ6 protects against rapid temperature changes, such when a pallet is exposed to direct sunlight, as well as extending the protection period against extreme ambient conditions.

The product incorporates an outer scrim which reinforces its toughness, dimensional stability and durability to facilitate handling. We have designed SQ6 with operational challanges in mind to help keep products safe during all stages of the supply chain.

Dharmesh Chauhan, Commercial Director at TP3 Global, commented: “We’re extremely delighted to be releasing this innovative product to the market. With its unique composition, the SQ6 can meet and exceed customer demands on all fronts, overcoming cold chain breaks, improving operational challenges and providing market leading performance to ensure the integrity of our clients cargo is kept intact.”

This space saving cover will save you time and money due to its 19mm lightweight, compressible nature. It will eliminate your storage and handling concerns and allows you to increase loads during pallet transportation.

SQ6 is a result of our state of the art TP3 Technical Centre, which allows materials to be tested beyond the identification of an R-value. The data our facility provides will support customer decisions on deciding whether SQ6 is the correct insulation material to match your needs

We understand the importance of optimising the amount and types of packaging our customers use. Our expert, technical team are always at hand to help provide answers to any questions you might have surrounding SQ6 or our range of temperature protective materials. Our team of experts can help you decide which material is best suited to your business requirements and budget. For more information please contact a #TP3GLOBAL expert today.
