World Courier Custom Packaging Solutions

Powered and protected

Active containers

Active systems use a powered plant to maintain a variety of required temperature ranges. They are available in several payload sizes ranging from one to five EU pallets, the larger of which is represented by our fleet of state-of-the-art refrigerated vehicles. They are a good option when reliable infrastructure is guaranteed over the route. 

Increasing efficiency

Passive containers

Passive packaging solutions provide extended temperature stability against a variety of environmental conditions. Passive solutions leverage various insulators—expanded polystyrene (EPS), expanded polyurethane (PUR) and vacuum-insulated panels (VIPs); and a variety of coolants—water/gel packs, dry ice, or phase change materials (PCMs).

Dry shippers

Cryogenic shipments use a ‘dry shipper’—a strongly engineered cylindrical metal container enclosed in a rigid outer case. With your samples protected in a safe compartment, the container is filled with nitrogen vapor that maintains internal temperatures between -150° and -180°C for extended periods, and is suitable for air transport routes. 

Our first preference is always World Courier. We choose World Courier for their dedicated service and ability to provide better options to handle various critical shipments.
