Active CC Boxes has opened a depot Frankfurt, Germany, to handle its Kodiak™ reusable shipping containers, cutting repositioning costs for shippers and the company.
The air freight boxes — reusable, lockable containers that can pass through security scanning and maintain temperatures of between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius for up to five days — are used to ship temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and biotech products through the cold chain.
Until now, all containers were returned to a depot in North Brunswick, N.J.
The European depot will make containers available for cold chain shipping from Europe to the Middle East, western Russia and Africa. Containers shipped to these locations will be returned to the European depot.
