TLX Cargo and EMBALL’ISO agree a partnership that allows pharmaceutical companies and airlines to have a single point of contact for the thermal protection of their shipments31 January 2019
TLX Cargo, part of TLX insulation Ltd, world leading manufacturer of thin reflective insulation for 25 years, offer its Thermal blankets through EMBALL'ISO worldwide commercial network.
This new "PROTECTIVE" range of product marketed as TLX by EMBALL'ISO name is integrated to already existing isothermal solutions developed and produced by EMBALL'ISO: "STANDARD", "PREMIUM" and "PREMIUM +" range.
In practice, pharmaceutical products requiring temperature-controlled shipments (+2°C/+8°C or +15°C/+25°C) are shipped in passive isothermal packaging such as EMBALL'ISO Pallet Shipper (with water gel based briquettes or PCM_Phase Change Material briquettes). They can also be covered by a Thermal Blanket in association with an airway bill +2°C/+8°C or +15°C/25°C. Performance, cost and product data stability are taken into account for the isothermal solution choice.
Having a single contact for all the isothermal solutions available on the market enables EMBALL'ISO to offer a solution that takes into account all factors, such as weather conditions, seasons or airwaybill quality level. For instance, on a same lane, a thermal blanket can be sufficient in summer whereas a Pallet shipper should be advised in winter. With a performing airway bill a thermal cover would be sufficient whereas on another lane, the lack of infrastructure will lead to the use of a higher performance isothermal solution.
EMBALL'ISO sales team on four continents advice their customer on the isothermal solution choice.
This Dynamic Approach suggested by EMBALL'ISO enables customers to adapt the isothermal packaging choice to its facing constraints in order to optimise costs.
Three TLX by EMBALL'ISO Thermal Blankets are available for the time being:
TLX2, recyclable, breathable and light reflectance
TLX4, high infrared radiation reflectance
TLXPCM the first thermal blanket with PCM, available for +2°C/+8°C and +15°C/25°C shipments.
