Thursday, Oct 01, 2015

Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), a leading global provider of temperature-controlled packaging solutions is set to commercially release the KoolTemp® GTS Evolution 1400L qualified pallet shipping system on Wednesday, October 7th at the 13th annual GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Global Forum in Boston, Massachusetts at booth 517-519.

 Designed specifically for the shipment of high value, palletized pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products, the GTS Evolution 1400L offers 5+ days of extreme temperature protection and is optimized for companies that demand the highest performance and greatest ease of use when making long duration shipments experiencing weather extremes.

“The KoolTemp GTS Evolution 1400L provides shippers with unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, and ease of use,” states Jamie Chasteen, senior product manager at CCT. “As the successor to our flagship KoolTemp GTS 5420, the GTS Evolution 1400L expands on its predecessor’s strengths while improving across every single measurable category. The performance is greatly improved through the use of Koolit® Advanced PCM while simultaneously increasing payload capacity and simplicity. As a result, system weight, complexity, and total cost is greatly reduced.”

Through several patent pending technologies in combination with Koolit Advanced PCM (Phase Change Material) and KoolDesigns® Thermal modeling, the GTS 1400L has resulted in a ground breaking full pallet shipping system with a modular platform that allows the user to configure for various temperature ranges as well as individual applications such as clinical trial versus finished commercial goods shipments.
