Controlant and Envirotainer are working together to offer pharma customers state-of-the-art cryo -70°C dry ice shipping with real-time, automated monitoring. The collaboration focuses on combining Envirotainer’s revolutionary new -70°C dry ice platform, CryoSure®, with Controlant’s IoT solution, to protect sensitive pharmaceuticals during transport, while optimizing processes and reducing waste.  

Real-time visibility 

The CryoSure® solution is especially designed for ultra-cold shipments, using dry ice, and is now revolutionizing the industry. With Controlant’s integrated platform, pharma customers gain real-time visibility and get access to data through the Envirotainer Portal, enabling them to get valuable insights at any point during their shipment. This makes it possible to act on information in real time to ensure quality, mitigate risks, and prevent waste.  

Towards zero waste

Envirotainer and Controlant share the vision of a sustainable supply chain, and this collaboration is one step towards net zero emissions. The CryoSure® dewar is reusable, as are the IoT devices that enable Controlant’s platform, so the business model is circular. Active, cloud-based live monitoring provides visibility over product conditions in real time, allowing for proactive measures to reduce loss and waste of products. A lightweight, reusable shipping solution in combination with reusable real-time IoT devices is an ideal combination for waste reduction and a sustainable product offering. The ease of use and Envirotainer’s superior logistics and station network are additional factors for efficiency and a sustainable supply chain.    

“We’re proud that this collaboration gives us the chance to make a difference for a more resilient pharma supply chain and utilize our strong data platform with Envirotainer’s premium solution,” says Hristo Petkov, VP Partnerships at Controlant.   

“We are very happy to collaborate with Controlant on offering Live Monitoring to our CryoSure® customers. Controlant’s commitment to quality, reliability and sustainability makes Controlant the perfect partner to Envirotainer in delivering this service,” says Linus Wollentz, Head of Digital Services at Envirotainer.
