Delivering maximum reliability and value
Cocoon is the industry’s most dependable and cost-effective passive solution for transporting pallet-sized shipments of temperature-sensitive materials. Having recently been recognized for Supply Chain Transformation at the 15th annual Global Forum Excellence Awards, Cocoon is redefining what’s possible in pharmaceutical logistics.Protect your shipments
Transforming packaging perceptions
Cocoon provides secure volume shipping at a variety of temperature ranges, over great distances, and to remote locations where transport and storage infrastructure may be unreliable. As a passive solution, Cocoon delivers extended temperature-controlled performance while minimizing environmental impact. Best of all, Cocoon’s advanced honeycomb construction is 30% lighter than comparable solutions, translating into considerable savings for our customers.
Reducing billable weight
Airlines and other logistics providers determine billable charges based on either container size (a theoretical volumetric ‘weight’), or actual shipment weight, whichever is higher. This means it will cost more to ship an identical payload in a heavier container than in a lighter container of the same size. Cocoon is 30% lighter than similarly-sized containers, and even lighter than its theoretical volumetric weight. That means you can ship more material inside a Cocoon before triggering extra air freight charges, amounting to a considerable savings.
Enhancing performance and value
lighter than comparable products
hours of qualified temperature stability
lower cost than comparable solutions
Expanding global reach
Cocoon shipments have originated from over 110 World Courier offices and agent locations, going to over 100 other offices or agent locations worldwide, making Cocoon a truly global solution. As a passive solution, its 168-hour qualification time helps you access markets with unreliable infrastructure—a remarkable achievement considering the rigors of transport and the wide variety of global climatic conditions, clearance procedure durations, and time spent under uncontrolled ambient conditions.
Temperature readout from a Cocoon traveling from Austria to Iraq
Protected by a Cocoon 1350 (which holds two Euro pallets), this shipment’s internal temperature stayed within the desired range of +15 to +25 degrees C for over 13 days with no replenishment of gel packs and no opening of the unit—despite spending nearly 10 days in a desert warehouse in Baghdad with limited external temperature control.
When a client comes to us with a challenge that current market solutions cannot meet, we innovate. The idea that became Cocoon was sparked when a manufacturing partner needed to transport pallet-sized shipments within a low frozen range, across challenging environmental conditions. Our response was a passive shipping solution that didn't just meet the client's needs, it revolutionized temperature-sensitive transport.
Cocoon was developed by our Climate Optimisation Research and Engineering (CORE) Labs. Using a state-of-the art climate chamber to test and qualify packaging solutions under a host of conditions, the data collected by CORE Labs enables our associates to provide trusted recommendations based on transparent qualification processes to help clients select the right packaging to fit their requirements.
