January 28 2014 -- Chronos Advance™ is the new innovative shipping system launched by Cool Logistics aimed at setting new standards in the single use shipping industry.

Cool Logistics, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, unveiled its exclusive high performance product at the IQPC event in Luxembourg today.

Utilising advanced insulation and phase changing materials, the Chronos Advance™ is designed to ensure maximum protection for payloads with the standardised components ensuring simple, error free assembly.

The newly launched Chronos Advance™ is pre-qualified to a range of industry recognised ambient profiles and integrates a range of high performance features including:

- High performance insulating foam and vacuum insulation panels with advanced phase changing material (PCM) technology.

- Phase-Lock features simplify the packing process by using a single temperature CoolPhase PCM.

- Hibernation can be achieved at any point during transit by placing the shipper into refrigerated storage, pausing phase change within the shipper, resulting in longer temperature compliant shipments.

- Moisture protecting materials eradicating any potential damage to the product and labelling, from condensation build up on coolants.

The Chronos Advance™ system offers a more compact, size efficient shipper that will perform to 72hrs against ISTA 7D standards and beyond 120hrs in real world environments coupled with easy packing and handling elements.

Paul Terry, Sales and Marketing Director, DS Smith Plastics Cool Logistics said: “We are delighted to reveal our new Chronos Advance™ system here at IQPC. We are confident the Chronos Advance™ will prove to be a real game changer within the industry.

“It is time for change and the Chronos Advance™ does just that – offering superior performance and reduced costs.”

“Initially available to protect 2-8oC shipments in 3 core sizes, extensions to ambient and additional sizes will naturally follow.”

Cool Logistics’ headquarters is based in Bedfordshire, UK and operates globally with an extensive network of partnerships and manufacturing locations.
