Sonoco ThermoSafe survey finds growing reliance on 3PLs for cold chain
A survey conducted by Sonoco ThermoSafe shows that industry managers place performance above cost as a container-selection qualification, are looking to increase their usage of third-party logistics (3PLs) providers, and are increasingly factoring in environmental concerns with recyclability and reuse of the containers.
Preliminary results are based on 165 respondents both who were both personally interviewed and who filled out an online survey. Pharmaceutical Commerce’s editor in chief, Nick Basta, was part of an industry/analyst panel that worked with Sonoco ThermoSafe (Arlington Heights, IL) to develop the questionnaire. Final results will be presented during a talk at the upcoming IQPC Cold Chain Forum, on Oct. 2. Click here for more information.
