Joint agreement promises to make cold chain packaging solutions lighter and more cost effective
Infitrak recently announced a joint development and distribution agreement with Rapid Aid, the leading manufacturer of hot and cold therapy and temperature controlled transport products.
Through this agreement, Infitrak will have exclusive rights to offer Rapid Aid’s Transportation Freezer Packs to its logistics customers across North America. It also provides Infitrak with technical and engineering support to enhance Infitrak’s current cold chain packaging portfolio. Rapid Aid, in return, receives cold chain services and compliance expertise to build more cost-optimized products, which are compliant, offer longer hold times, and weigh less than current generation products.
Rapid Aid Transportation Freezer Packs are designed for transporting temperature-sensitive goods, including vaccines, serums, pathology samples, environmental testing samples, medical supplies, seafood and other perishable products. When used with the Infitrak qualified packaging system, products can be stored longer, in a lighter package, reducing shipment weight and cost for the end customer.
“Through Infitrak’s expertise in compliance, shipping and storage conditions, in specific temperature regulated markets, we recognized a huge potential opportunity to change the industry for cold chain logistics packaging, said Jeff Whitely, CEO of Rapid Aid. “We plan to utilize both sets of experts to develop products that make medicines safer to store, lighter to transport, and more cost effective for patients.”
“Imagine qualified packaging solutions that are lighter, have longer temperature duration specifications and can sustain much colder or hotter temperatures than current offerings, while keeping temperatures consistent and products safe, said Jean Bédard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Infitrak. “With Rapid Aid’s 40 years of market knowledge and patented technologies, combine with our knowledge of temperature management, shipping and logistics, we hope to help enable that change faster than ever before.”
Infitrak offers a complete line of temperature management, remote monitoring, qualification and compliance solutions. For more information about Infitrak’s cold chain solution, visit us here. For more information about Rapid Aid’s Transportation Freezer Packs, please click here.
