EU Pallet Shipper Configurations

Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco (NYSE:SON) and a leading global provider of temperature assurance packaging, has launched the Envoy Euro Pallet Shipper.  Designed for a standard Euro pallet (1200 x 800 mm), temperature control is maintained for a minimum of 96 hours between 2°C and 8°C utilising Sonoco ThermoSafe’s patent pending natural convection design.  Requiring only top and bottom refrigerants, together with an innovative payload pedestal for pre-loading efficiencies, the Envoy Euro Pallet Shipper avoids the complexities and nuances of traditional pallet shipper assembly.

“The Envoy Euro Pallet Shipper complements our growing pallet shipper portfolio while creating additional flexibility for our customers,” said Ben VanderPlas, global product manager, Sonoco ThermoSafe.  “The Euro pallet footprint is an important and integral platform for world-wide logistics.  We have included our most current pallet shipper innovations combined with a new feature allowing the user to pre-pack and pre-condition the entire pallet shipper and payload prior to shipment. Only the refrigerants remain to be loaded which greatly increases productivity during peak shipping periods.”

Russell Grissett, VP of Sonoco ThermoSafe added, “This is the first in a series of passive pallet shippers that we will be launching in the coming months.  Our patent pending convection technology will continue to be incorporated into our future designs. This eliminates the need for side refrigerants, making our pallet shippers incredibly simple to assemble, lightweight, and customs friendly for easy inspection.  The Envoy Euro Pallet Shipper will be manufactured in both European and U.S. facilities.”

The Envoy Euro Pallet Shipper is designed to Sonoco ThermoSafe’s ISCsilver® ambient profiles with a minimum duration of 4 days. A 15°C to 25°C controlled room temperature (CRT) version is coming soon. Visit to learn more.
