Sanofi partnered with Sonoco ThermoSafe to design and qualify a passive pallet shipper to lower their total cost of order fulfillment including labor, packaging, and lease costs. Meanwhile they would benefit from better flight availability with onsite ready-to-use pallet shippers.

Certis pallet shipper employs new convection features and simplified preparation steps
Volume shippers of pharmaceutical products have the option of pallet (or multiple-pallet)-sized unit-load devices (ULDs) that go into aircraft, or to have a self-assembled box that contains the shipment, refrigerant packs, insulation and a protective cover. ULDs—many of which also contain a powered refrigeration system—are expensive and are typically leased; the self-assembled shippers are generally single-use (although components, such as the refrigerant packs, can sometimes be reused). Now, Sonoco ThermoSafe (Arlington Heights, IL) has redesigned its assembled shippers, under the Certis brand name, to provide higher efficiencies in materials and operational steps to preparing a shipment.
