Our expertise in thermodynamics combined with logistics makes us your go-to source for pallet testing and thermal protection design development for your domestic and international shipments. Temperature sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals, biologics, perishable food, and flowers are susceptible to temperature fluctuations outside the required temperature range during the transportation and distribution process. Correct maintenance of the required temperature range throughout the entire cold chain process is crucial in providing safety and quality. Due to the presence of multiple uncontrolled variables, such as weather fluctuations and shipment delays that exist during the logistics process, a freight thermal protection solution is key throughout truck, air or ocean transportation.
Thermal Testing for Cargo
Curious to know if your freight protection system is performing properly or if some modifications could be made? Utilizing our customized cargo testing temperature chambers, we can replicate any amount of fluctuating environmental temperature profiles to test the thermal performance from one to ten of your pallets to conditions similar to real life. Our custom temperature and humidity logging devices allow us to measure product temperature as well as air temperature, for an accurate representation of the condition of your product. Using our dynamic thermal mapping system, we can show you the three-dimensional temperature distribution of your pallet.
Temperature Protection Designs for Cargo
Whether you are looking for various thermal protection solutions for each season versus a year-round solution, or have various transit durations and locations to manage, we can design a reusable or one-time use pallet protection system to meet your needs. A well-developed system for transporting temperature sensitive products is not only about thermal performance, but it must also be feasible and cost-efficient. Freight protection designs must consider the primary mode of transportation, the secondary mode of transportation, as well as conditions and facilities at transit points.
Real Life Freight Testing & Environmental Assessment
Our approach to conducting real-life freight tests have proven beneficial at the initial testing and design phase, as final verification, and as routine assessments. By testing multiple locations throughout your cargo, we can determine the level of thermal protection your product is experiencing as well as collect actual environmental data from your shipping lanes. The environmental data is a valuable asset to develop or optimize your temperature profiles, especially if your pallet is shipped using various modes of transportation. Real life studies can be used to verify your cold chain process is consistent, which is an important tool to ensure your system provides the necessary thermal protection.
