UPS Launches Cryogenic Shipping in Europe
With a growing global cryogenic market, UPS uses cryogenic containers for temperature-sensitive logistics in Europe.
Advances in cryogenic gases, metal technology, and demand in a variety of industries will drive demand for cryogenic equipment. The report says, “Widespread usage of cryogens in the food processing industry and transportation of frozen food is also expected to provide avenues for market growth over the next few years. These equipment are widely used in several medical applications such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and dead cell preservation. In addition, they are also used in blood banks owing to growing need for rare blood storage at very low temperature.”
UPS, a global resource in logistics, is now offering cryogenic shipping to its temperature-sensitive portfolio of products in Europe. Specifically, the company is launching UPS Temperature True® Cryo, providing healthcare customers access to end-to-end product protection and capability to ship parcels in a cryogenic environment. The service includes real-time tracking and intervention, which, when combined with the company’s risk mitigation and global network of control towers, will provide complete visibility for shipments at every stage of the supply chain journey.
