Peli BioThermal is to add 13 drop points to its Credo on Demand network across Europe in partnership with Rhenus Logistics.
The new European drop points are among more than 50 planned for 2018 including additional locations planned for the Americas and Asia.
The company is also expanding the number of network stations in 2018, which act as the origin point for new Credo on Demand rental assets, as well as providing services including conditioning and end of rental drop-off.
Network stations are often co-locations of Peli BioThermal service centres, which offer conditioning, refurbishment and repair to their line of Credo Cube temperature controlled packaging.
Peli BioThermal vice president of Credo on Demand, Dominic Hyde says: “We are delighted to unveil our latest locations serving our Crēdo rental programs which are designed to provide our customers with options.
“Adding these drop points in key logistics hubs will allow our EMEA customers in pharmaceutical distribution the flexibility and convenience to choose the best drop-off location for their business.”
Rhenus Logistics has a number of GMP and GDP compliant pharmaceutical and healthcare storage warehousing sites in multiple locations throughout Europe offering Peli BioThermal customers a wider service network.
The drop points provide customers with an additional option for returning Credo on Demand assets at the end of the rental period including Credo Xtreme pallet shippers and Credo Cargo bulk shippers.
Rhenus Logistics international key account manager, Jonathan Parish says: “This initiative with Peli BioThermal is another positive demonstration of how the logistics industry has to strategically and transparently collaborate to create unique values in the ever-changing cold chain industry.”
The new European locations include Prague Airport in the Czech Republic; Denmark’s Copenhagen Airport; Lyon Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in France; the German network covers Frankfurt Airport, Munich Airport and Stuttgart Airport; Ireland’s Dublin Airport; Milan Airport in Italy; Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands; Warsaw Airport in Poland; Zurich Airport in Switzerland; and Spain’s Barcelona Airport.
