Here in Atlanta, summer has now given way to early fall, which is bad news for the HVAC industry but a welcome change for Atlantans.
This time of year is also welcome to shippers of temperature-sensitive products. A package containing insulin, which must be protected from excessive temperatures, will remain unspoiled longer on a Minneapolis doorstep at 60 degrees Fahrenheit than on a Phoenix doorstep in 105 degrees.
Optimizing the design of temperature-sensitive packages can help ensure that package contents will arrive in optimal condition by staying within the designated temperature range through the transportation process. Avoiding spoilage is not, however, only about the package itself; it’s also about the ambient temperatures in the environment that the package will pass through.
