Three Ways Passive Thermal Solutions Can Protect Your Transportation Network

  1. Navigating Tight Capacity


In many cases, implementing a passive thermal solution like a pallet cover or cargo quilt, can reduce or eliminate the need for active temp control. Now more than ever, acquiring active temperature-controlled equipment, whether shipping by air, land, or sea, comes with a huge cost to shippers. The high price of refrigerated service comes along with limited availability, equating to major impacts to supply chain efficiency, customer service, and puts product quality at risk.


  1. Supply Chain Flexibility


Incorporating passive thermal solutions like pallet covers and container liners into your cold chain logistics offers added protection when shipping against increased temperature risk or weather-related delays. Such passive thermal solutions can also reduce transportation costs throughout the year when implemented during “shoulder seasons” between winter or summer extremes, or on low-risk shipping lanes that don’t necessarily demand more expensive active temp solutions.



  1. More Than Just a R.O.I.


Whether you’re a carrier, a broker, a manufacturer, or a forwarder, staying ahead in your industry means shipping smart. Get a leg up on the competition by equipping yourself for when the next transportation challenge reveals itself. Just in time deliveries, next day air, power outages and delays happen, but securing your cold chain with passive thermal protection can be the link that holds it all together.


Getting through airfreight security screenings, protecting high value containers through delays from power outages on intermodal or ocean shipments, and rushed LTL pallets needing next day air service are just a few examples of how passive thermal protection can turn a disadvantage into an opportunity to deliver for your customers.
