UPS adds cryogenic shipping to temperature-sensitive portfolio in Europe 10 March 2016

Solution uses Cryoport's leading-edge cryogenic containers

UPS has launched UPS Temperature True Cryo in Europe, providing healthcare customers access to end-to-end product protection and capability to ship specimens in a cryogenic environment. The service includes real-time tracking and intervention, which, when combined with UPS’s risk mitigation solutions and global network of control towers, will provide complete visibility for shipments at every stage of the supply chain journey.

When products requiring cryopreservation are on the move, customers want peace of mind that their shipments are safeguarded, so for UPS, bringing this solution to the Europe market was a logical next step.

This solution uses Cryoport's leading-edge cryogenic containers, which allow UPS customers to use liquid nitrogen stored in dry vapour form to keep products frozen at -150C for 10 days while in transit or storage. When meeting minimum volume levels, shipments can also be paired with UPS Proactive Response Secure, a financial protection service that provides coverage for these time- and temperature-sensitive shipments.

The UPS Temperature True portfolio offers broad storage, transportation and packaging services for products ranging from cryogenic to ambient, specifically tailored for companies in the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device industries. These services are complemented by extensive regulatory expertise and a global network of 51 UPS healthcare-dedicated facilities.
