TLX and Emball'iso announce global partnership

25/01/2019

TLX Cargo and EMBALL’ISO agree a partnership that allows pharmaceutical companies and airlines to have one single point of contact for their temprature controlled shipments.

TLX Cargo Thermal Blankets are now available worldwide in EMBALL’ISO commercial network. Pharmaceutical companies now have one customer consultant for the purchase or rental of passive isothermal packaging and thermal covers.

This new “PROTECTIVE” range of products will be marketed as TLX by EMBALL’ISO and 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 TLX and Emball’iso to offer a solution that takes into account all factors, such as weather, seasons or airway bill quality level. For instance, on the 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 customer to adapt the isothermal packaging choice to its facing constraints in order to optimize costs.
