Pelican BioThermal is celebrating the fifth anniversary of Credo on Reserve, its long-term rental programme for the cold chain pharmaceutical distribution industry.
Unlike Credo on Demand rental service, which offers daily and monthly rental rates, Credo on Reserve offers customers dedicated inventory for longer rental periods.
Customers pay for a minimum number of trips during the period and a fixed rate on any trips beyond the minimum.
The company says this flexibility gives end users the benefit of passive temperature controlled shippers, combined with replacing large capital costs with more manageable monthly operating costs.
Pelican BioThermal vice president of worldwide sales, Kevin Lawler says: “We’re extremely proud of the five years we’ve offered Credo Cube shippers to meet global customer needs through Credo on Reserve.
“No other provider of temperature controlled packaging offers a similar program that has the fleet of dedicated inventory, years of experience and worldwide infrastructure that Pelican BioThermal provides and has provided for five years.”
Lawler adds: “Medical device manufacturers prefer to focus on their core competencies of maximising patient health, rather than building complex logistics and distribution systems.
“Our Credo on Reserve programme is designed to give manufacturers maximum flexibility without the headache of managing reverse logistics, refurbishment, conditioning and the upfront investment in temperature-controlled shippers.”
Credo on Reserve includes Credo ProEnvision, a web-based asset management and optimisation tool providing real-time tracking and tracing of individual shippers through the entire distribution cycle.
