ITS executive team to be available for consultation at Booth #23, featuring reusable cold chain containers with extended hold times and green benefits for the pharmaceutical and biologics sectors.

EcoTherm™ containers offer remarkable improvement over typical corrugated boxes, with their extended hold times and green benefits.

Intelligent Thermal Solutions, named Innovator of the Year by the 2011 Greener Package Awards, announces that its leadership team will attend the IQPC’s 9th Annual Cold Chain & Temperature Control Global Forum in Philadelphia, PA Sept. 26-30, 2011.

ITS President and Chief Executive Officer Richard Ellinger will be joined by COO and CIO John Howe. Both Ellinger and Howe will be available for consultation at IQPC Booth #23.

Intelligent Thermal Solutions makes EcoTherm™ containers – reusable cold chain shipping containers that feature five-day temperature-assured duration cold chain containers for safely shipping pharmaceuticals and biologics worldwide. The company leverages depot-style logistics to offer a durable and eco-friendly alternative to typical shipping methods.

EcoTherm™ containers can be reused up to 100 times, versus once for typical one-way corrugated boxes and packaging, dramatically reducing materials headed for landfills and overcoming the cost of return logistics.

“At first glance, our EcoTherm™ containers are obviously different than any temperature-assured containers anywhere,” said Mr. Ellinger. “EcoTherm™ containers offer remarkable improvement over typical corrugated boxes, with their extended hold times and green benefits.    We look forward to advancing cold chain logistics for the pharmaceutical and biologics sector.”

The IQPC conference will examine the modern cold chain – including all temperature range products and their regulatory requirements – as well as evolving sectors such as medical devices and diagnostics, generics, APIs, biologics and cell therapies.
