Pre-qualified shipping containers for the transportation of pharmaceutical goods

Cedarlane Shipping Supplies is partnered with industry-leader Cold Chain Technologies and represents its extensive and reliable product line in Canada. Cedarlane transports goods of all shapes, sizes, and temperature requirements in validated containers designed to keep contents at either controlled room temperature (between 15°C and 25°C), refrigerated (between 2°C and 8°C), or frozen (-20°C).

No matter the size, shipping duration, or temperature requirements of your temperature sensitive product, Cedarlane has a suitable pre-qualified package.
Cedarlane is a Canadian provider of solid-state phase change material (PCM) gels, which are non-toxic, durable, and offer better coverage than previously used liquid PCMs.
For shipments lasting up to 48 hours, Cedarlane's economical Excel line provides a streamlined universal solution that is kept in-stock and ready for delivery.
For shipments lasting up to 120 hours, the company's Extreme line offers maximum protection year-round, while minimising overall size and weight for reduced ship costs.

Cedarlane Shipping Supplies’ products and services meet industry demands and are at the cutting-edge of cold chain technology. The company has recently started using a solid phase change material (PCM) gel in its solutions, meaning they are completely non-toxic and offer high coverage, insulation, and durability.

Thermal packaging design with a custom temperature profile for medical supplies

One of Cedarlane Shipping Supplies’ specialties is designing custom solutions for customers with unique requirements. The company utilises the best resources to ensure that the end result is an optimised and custom thermal packaging system.

Cedarlane works with its clients to analyse their requirements, which include payload size, shipping duration, and temperature range. A detailed cost analysis is then produced to find where savings can be made without compromising the integrity of shipments.

There are many factors involved when determining cost, including the packaging itself, the ease of the pack out, and freight costs. Cedarlane Shipping Supplies understands that a cheap, large, and heavy shipper will most likely cost more in the end than a high-quality, small, and light shipper once inbound and outbound freight are considered.

Part of the design process also includes developing a temperature profile that matches the logistics a product will experience using Cedarlane’s library of historical weather data from Statistics Canada.

Thermal packaging validation

Once a temperature profile has been established, Cedarlane Shipping Supplies will begin to design a custom package, including the right size container for the payload and added gel packs, phase change materials (PCM), and foam to protect it from moving around in transit.

This design will be extensively laboratory tested to create confidence that the thermal packaging system is capable of consistently operating within established limits and tolerances. The packaging will also be tested in climate-controlled chambers, which mimic the temperature profile. Verified documentation will be recorded to ensure performance is effective and reproducible throughout the anticipated operating ranges.

Finally, the solution is tested in the field to verify that it meets all functionality requirements and the qualification documents are completed. No matter the temperature range, shipment duration, or ambient temperature profile, Cedarlane will be able to provide a customised solution.

Emergency deliveries for medical and pharmaceutical products accomodated

Located just outside of the Greater Toronto area in Burlington, Ontario, Cedarlane Shipping Supplies is perfectly equipped to serve Canada’s largest hub for medical and pharmaceutical administration and research.

The company aims to deliver supplies as quickly as possible, which often means clients will recieve the product within 24 hours or less. Cedarlane also has access to a plethora of data on Canadian weather and transport routes for developing robust temperature profiles.

In addition, Cedarlane Shipping Supplies is working with Cold Chain Technologies to develop a series of off-the-shelf solutions that have been vigorously tested and validated for shipping from St. John’s to Vancouver.
