Cold-chain service providers realign, expand
In the steadily growing field of cold chain services to biopharma, three recent actions are worth noting:
DuPont, owners of the Tyvek brand of nonwoven, polymeric sheeting, are handing off the Tyvek Cargo Covers to Cold Chain Technologies, Inc., under undisclosed terms. After July 15, CCT will be the exclusive global producer, seller, distributor and service provider for the thermal blanketing technology.
Meanwhile, va-Q-tec, a Würzburg, Germany producer of parcel- to pallet-size temperature-controlled containers, has announced the integration of a global network of service centers, communication-enabled dataloggers and a cloud-based, blockchain-structured tracking system, va-Q-nection.
Finally, SkyCell, the Swiss developer of temperature-controlled air cargo containers, has announced a $62-million funding round, drawing investments from several Swiss investment organizations.Source: Pharmaceutical Commerce
