Temperature-Controlled Parcels: Safeguarding Chemicals with our Cold Chain Logistics

What is cold chain logistics?

Cold chain logis­tics involves the man­age­ment and trans­porta­tion of tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive prod­ucts. It ensures that per­ish­able goods, such as food and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, main­tain a con­sis­tent and con­trolled tem­per­a­ture through­out the sup­ply chain. By pre­serv­ing prod­uct qual­i­ty and safe­ty, cold chain logis­tics plays a cru­cial role in indus­tries that rely on main­tain­ing the integri­ty of tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive items.

How we do it?

Caplinq offers inno­v­a­tive and reli­able cold chain solu­tions with their spe­cial­ly designed in-house box­es. These box­es have under­gone rig­or­ous test­ing in var­i­ous weath­er con­di­tions, ensur­ing their reli­a­bil­i­ty and per­for­mance. With the abil­i­ty to main­tain a con­stant tem­per­a­ture for up to 2 to 4 days, Caplin­q’s box­es pro­vide opti­mal tem­per­a­ture con­trol for your prod­ucts. By part­ner­ing with trust­ed logis­tics providers, Caplinq takes care of the entire sup­ply chain process.

Ship­ments are close­ly mon­i­tored to ensure time­ly deliv­ery. Upon arrival, recip­i­ents have two options: they can either drop off the box at the near­est part­ner pick-up point or arrange a pick-up with Caplin­q’s part­ner. This stream­lined process elim­i­nates the need to ship an entire pal­let in a tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled shipment.

With Caplin­q’s solu­tion, there is no need for min­i­mum order quan­ti­ties (MOQ). You can now ship as lit­tle as one prod­uct in any required tem­per­a­ture range. This flex­i­bil­i­ty allows you to meet spe­cif­ic prod­uct demands with­out con­straints. Trust Caplin­q’s exper­tise to pro­vide seam­less cold chain logis­tics, opti­miz­ing your ship­ping process and ensur­ing prod­uct integri­ty at any scale.

Which type of products do we support mostly?

At Caplinq, we have honed our exper­tise in han­dling spe­cial­ty chem­i­cals with pre­ci­sion. Whether it’s receiv­ing, stor­ing, ship­ping, or pack­ing, we excel in meet­ing the unique require­ments of these chem­i­cals. Even for haz­ardous mate­ri­als (DG), we have reli­able part­ners who can han­dle the intri­ca­cies involved. While spe­cial­iz­ing in med­ical equip­ment, we are also mak­ing strides in ‑40°C ship­ments. Our inno­v­a­tive approach elim­i­nates the need for dry ice, pro­vid­ing a more effi­cient and cost-effec­tive solu­tion. With our com­mit­ment to con­tin­u­ous progress, we ensure that your valu­able prod­ucts are han­dled safe­ly and deliv­ered with utmost care. Trust Caplinq to be your trust­ed part­ner in man­ag­ing spe­cial­ty chem­i­cals, pro­vid­ing tai­lored solu­tions that meet your spe­cif­ic needs.

Types of cold chain shipments?

Cold chain ship­ments can be approached through two dis­tinct meth­ods: active cold chain and pas­sive cold chain logistics.

Active cold chain

Active cold chain ship­ping ensures con­tin­u­ous tem­per­a­ture con­trol through­out a jour­ney, main­tain­ing reli­a­bil­i­ty despite ener­gy-inten­sive ther­mal man­age­ment. This approach guar­an­tees sta­ble con­di­tions for sen­si­tive car­go, elim­i­nat­ing car­ri­er-relat­ed delays and exter­nal fac­tors. While excelling in depend­abil­i­ty for extend­ed dis­tances and tran­sit dura­tions, it comes with high­er costs and ener­gy con­sump­tion due to con­stant tem­per­a­ture reg­u­la­tion. These trade-offs neces­si­tate care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion based on the spe­cif­ic needs of goods being trans­port­ed. Active cold chain presents a robust solu­tion for indus­tries pri­or­i­tiz­ing reli­a­bil­i­ty and longer ship­ping capa­bil­i­ties, offer­ing a com­pet­i­tive edge in mit­i­gat­ing poten­tial risks asso­ci­at­ed with tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive logistics.

Passive cold chain

Pas­sive cold chain ship­ping employs an indi­rect approach to tem­per­a­ture con­trol, elim­i­nat­ing the need for exter­nal reg­u­lat­ing mech­a­nisms. Instead, it relies on pre-treat­ed Phase Change Mate­ri­als (PCMs) stored in a cold envi­ron­ment. These PCMs, loaded into ther­mal­ly insu­lat­ed con­tain­ers along­side the ship­ment, absorb and off­set heat released by the car­go, ensur­ing tem­per­a­ture stability.

The ben­e­fits of pas­sive cold chain include cost-effec­tive­ness, suit­abil­i­ty for short­er dis­tances and quick­er tran­sit times, and ener­gy sav­ings due to its com­pact nature. How­ev­er, draw­backs include the neces­si­ty for con­tain­er return, as the spe­cial ther­mal box­es require retrieval, unless sup­port­ed by a well-estab­lished car­ri­er cold chain net­work. This method offers a bal­anced solu­tion for sce­nar­ios where reli­a­bil­i­ty, effi­cient design, and cost con­sid­er­a­tions are vital fac­tors in tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive logistics.

Did you know that Caplinq can han­dle both active and pas­sive cold chains.

How to decide?

Caplinq is well-equipped with both the method­ol­o­gy and resources to facil­i­tate a com­pre­hen­sive analy­sis when delib­er­at­ing between active and pas­sive cold chain ship­ments. Select­ing the appro­pri­ate cold chain approach is con­tin­gent on var­i­ous con­sid­er­a­tions. Fac­tors include the envi­ron­men­tal pref­er­ences of your clien­tele, the extent of cost sen­si­tiv­i­ty exhib­it­ed by cus­tomers, the antic­i­pat­ed tran­sit dura­tion, the vol­ume of car­go to be trans­port­ed, and the via­bil­i­ty of reac­quir­ing pas­sive cold chain containers.

With Caplin­q’s exper­tise, busi­ness­es can make an informed deci­sion by eval­u­at­ing these aspects and align­ing them with their logis­ti­cal needs. This ensures a tai­lored solu­tion that address­es spe­cif­ic require­ments while opti­miz­ing for envi­ron­men­tal impact, cost-effec­tive­ness, tran­sit time, ship­ment size, and logis­ti­cal feasibility.
