Bayer upgrades temperature-controlled packaging and saves money while doing so
According to Kevin Pegels, VP of global supply chain management, Biotech Div., the product is shipped from Berkeley to more than 50 countries around the world. While certain shipping lanes for Bayer make use of active (powered) shipping containers, Kogenate is typically shipped with passive containers, employing insulation panels and gel packs for refrigeration. In a recent upgrade of this packaging, the company was able to triple the payload while lowering the overall weight of the container, which is sized as a Quarter PMC (fitting a European-dimension pallet; payload volume is 51 cu. ft.). The new container, rated for 80 hours of service under typical shipping conditions, is the culmination of a three-year development program. Along the way, Bayer partners with Emball’Iso (Saint Georges de Reneins, France), a vendor of temperature-controlled packaging systems, to finalize the design.
