Healthcare Packaging goes to Washington: Part I of a four-part series

An update on the Parenteral Drug Assn. from President Richard M. Johnson in Bethesda, MD.
The PharmaPort™ 360 from Cool Containers is an active hybrid container. What that means is that it’s designed to hold one pallet of product, and is set to maintain a temperature range for temperature-sensitive products. A client would lease the containers from UPS, and we would deliver them to the client pre-cooled. They would put their pallet load in there, close it, seal it, and make sure the temperature is set correctly. Then it is transported from origin to destination.
