Tower Cold Chain launches container for smaller shipments

31-Mar-2022

More than 120 hours thermal insulation are provided requiring neither external power nor human intervention during transit

Tower Cold Chain has launched KTEvolution a reusable cold chain container designed to be carried by 1 or 2 people.

The product is aimed to add an easy, cost-effective and compliant transport of pharmaceutical products between suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and end patients throughout the global supply chain.

With up to 120 hours performance, the container is customisable based on customers’ supply chain needs and will be launched in 26-litre and 57-litre options. It will be available across a range of temperatures and is suitable for the transportation of pharmaceuticals, life-science, and biotech products that require an internal temperature of -70°c, -20°c, +5°c, +20°C.

The product is particularly designed to meet the growing trend for smaller shipments such as direct-to-patient, samples shipment, and last-mile deliveries.

More than 120 hours thermal insulation are provided requiring neither external power nor human intervention during transit.

Built-in datalogging technology enables real-time confirmation of internal temperature and on-delivery sign-off, and the device can be connected with integrated technology to track location, temperature as well as shock and impact monitoring.

“Pharmaceutical manufacturers, 3PL providers, and airlines value the consistency and stability assured when shipping products in Tower containers,” said Martin Hawes, Global Head of Product Development, Tower Cold Chain. “Customer feedback also made it clear that they would welcome a smaller solution, which offers the same robust, reliable and reusable benefits, but at a size ideal for manual handling. Hence the KTEvolution – which brings together the best of both worlds.”
