Supporting decades of expertise

CORE Labs is both a physical laboratory (located in Cologne, Germany), and the amassed knowledge of experts throughout our global network. Researchers in the lab use a state-of-the-art climate chamber to validate the quality and applicability of all our temperature-controlled solutions. Their data, backed by decades of field expertise, allow our associates to tailor recommendations regarding the right packaging for the right transport route based on transparent testing.

On-demand qualification data

At CORE Labs, we provide on-demand, transparent qualification data for any solution you need tested. In addition to supporting regulatory and GxP compliance, the results enable data-driven decision making. That means you can choose the most cost-effective solution for your transport route, without compromising the safety and efficacy of your product.

Developing Cocoon

When a client comes to us with a challenge that current market solutions cannot meet, we innovate. In 2013, a manufacturing partner needed to transport pallet-sized shipments within a low frozen range, across challenging environmental conditions. In response, CORE labs developed Cocoon, a passive shipping solution that has revolutionized temperature-sensitive transport.
