Temperature controlled packaging solutions provider Pelican is set to inaugurate its service centre in Puerto Rico on 24 August 2017.
The new facility will serve as additional depots for the company’s Credo on Demand rental program, which now offers the Credo Cargo, Pelican BioThermal’s newest reusable bulk shipper.
“We expect those looking to transport bulk shipments for the pharmaceutical manufacturing and life sciences industries to find benefits in both our new service center and the addition of Credo Cargo to Credo on Demand,” said David Williams, president of Pelican BioThermal.
“Those facing challenging shipping lanes will now be able to access a reliable and reusable option at a key pharmaceutical manufacturing and transfer hub.”
The new facilities in Puerto Rico will also be part of an expanding number of worldwide service centers providing options for Pelican BioThermal’s Credo on Demand program, including conditioning and end of rental drop-off. The rental service offers daily, monthly and other rental terms, including qualification reports and clean, freshly-refurbished Credo Cargo or Credo Xtreme shippers.
In addition to serving as depots for the company’s Credo on Demand rental program, the new Puerto Rico service center will enable global Pelican BioThermal clients to receive and return reusable temperature controlled packaging systems.
The new location complements the existing and expanding network of depots servicing key hubs for pharmaceutical manufacturing and transfer activities and is available to customers worldwide. This includes the recently announced Pelican BioThermal service center in Belgium.
Pelican BioThermal is a division of Pelican Products, Inc., which is a portfolio company of Behrman Capital, a private equity investment firm based in New York and San Francisco.
