Intelsius, a DGP company, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, based in York, UK is delighted to announce that international freight forwarding company, Cavalier Logistics, is its first North American Intelsius Qualified Partner (IQP).
Cavalier Logistics is a founding company and part of the Pharmaceutical Logistics Network (PLN) – a professional global association of specialist freight forwarders, whose capability, resource and infrastructure are in place to meet the most demanding needs of the pharmaceutical industry.
With the constant pressure in the temperature-controlled distribution supply chain to improve cost and maintain integrity, while protecting the importance of the product payload, the goal of reducing distribution costs has coincided with stronger regulations to ensure patient safety.
IQP certification enables customers to significantly cut distribution costs through creating a new robust, reliable and cost-effective global delivery solution for the cold chain network. “Utilising gold standards such as IQP accreditation means that we will be able to offer a truly unique bio pharma global delivery solution,” said Steve Winyard, Director of Commercial Operations, Cavalier. “Partnering with a forward-thinking company like Intelsius who shares our vision of providing game-changing solutions to the cold chain sector demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with the best support and service. Intelsius is truly a step ahead of the industry.”
Steve Healy, Global Director of Sales, Intelsius said: “Intelsius continues to be at the forefront of innovation. Cavalier Logistics’ investment in the PLN gives them a unique position in the industry and having them on board as part of our IQP network will help us in our quest to spur change and move the industry forward by creating a single source distribution solution, which maximises output and reduces cost.
“Whilst Intelsius’ ORCA range already delivers significant savings over long haul shipments due to greatly reduced volumetric weight versus payload capacity, reusing it can further reduce spend on packaging as it becomes a logistics asset rather than a consumable item. Furthermore, this also creates a more sustainable solution, allowing customers to reduce their waste output.”
Once IQP accreditation is gained, companies are trained on how to use, condition and refurbish the ORCA in order to maximise performance, packaging and cost. Furthermore, all IQP ORCA products will also undergo an Annual ORCA Maintenance Service. For further information on IQP accreditation visit www.intelsiusqualifiedpartner.com
