Sonoco ThermoSafe launches 48-hour prequalified shippers

Certis line of containers offer cost savings for shorter-duration runs


Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Certis line of containers for 2-8°, 15-25°C and frozen shipping of temperature-sensitive life sciences products have been designed for prequalified three- and five-day shipping durations; now, the line includes two-day units that offer cost economies and operational efficiencies. The Certis® 2-Day Platform uses the same pack-out for 2-8°C, 15-25°C and frozen shipments, comprising just three types of refrigerants and four shippers to create 12 solutions, thus maximizing the number of solutions while minimizing the number of components. The new platform is sized to accommodate 7, 13, 27 and 56 liters of product. Each configuration features a year-round pack-out designed for use in both hot and cold seasons.

Certis shipper“When designing the Certis® 2-Day platform, we focused on minimizing overall cost of ownership,” said Ben VanderPlas, global product manager. “Not only are these new solutions cost effective, but users will also see additional savings through operational efficiencies. With the use of our unique ZERO Bench-Time® technology, our customers can immediately pack out each solution and reduce their assembly time and space requirements. In combination with our Certis® 3-Day and 5-Day platform of solutions, the Certis® product line now offers a complete portfolio of temperature ranges, durations and payload sizes.”

The Certis 2-Day Platform is designed to Sonoco ThermoSafe’s ISC Regional™ ambient temperature profile for short-term shipments and is available in both U.S. and European facilities. Learn more at www.thermosafe.com/certisplatform.
