Reefer box could help if air screening gets tougher
A Texas firm said a new air container for refrigerated cargo could be useful if tightened terrorist screening means delays in shipping.
Active CC Boxes of Kingsville, said its Kodiak Active Temperature Control Shipping Containers could address concerns about tougher air cargo screening procedures from time-sensitive cold chain shippers, like the bioscience and pharmaceutical industries.
Active “has spent thousands of hours researching, developing, creating prototypes and testing new methods to improve the quality and lengthen the time allotted in the cold chain shipping process,' said John Howe, Active’s chief executive officer.
The company said the result is a line of temperature-controlled boxes that are durable and lockable with the ability to pass through security scanning and maintain temperatures from 2 to 8 degrees Celsius for up to five days.
