Peli adds first Canadian drop point and more to come

Peli BioThermal has added the company’s first Canadian drop point at the ATS Healthcare headquarters in Toronto and more are set to follow.

The temperature-controlled packaging firm said the new drop point serves to further the expansion of Peli BioThermal’s growing Crēdo on Demand rental program by providing an additional point of return for reusable shipping assets.

ATS Healthcare is also a distributor for Peli BioThermal products throughout Canada and the new location provides end-of-rental convenience for customers of Canada largest temperature controlled healthcare transportation provider.

Peli BioThermal vice president of Crēdo on Demand, Dominic Hyde said: “The Canadian pharmaceutical market is already the 10th-largest in the world and is forecasted to grow into a $25 billion industry by 2021.

“Our Crēdo rental programs provide customers with a cost-effective way of quickly expanding container fleets based on demand, without adding to overhead costs. Additional drop points, like that being offered at ATS Healthcare in Toronto, add further flexibility.”

ATS Healthcare offers end-to-end solutions for temperature management, security and other shipping requirements across Canada.

The new Toronto drop point offers both Peli BioThermal and ATS Healthcare customers an additional option for returning Crēdo on Demand assets at the end of the rental period, including Crēdo Xtreme pallet shippers and Crēdo Cargo bulk shippers.

ATS Healthcare chief operating officer, Bob Brogan added: “In our experience, the Crēdo on Demand rental program provides the best range of temperature controlled passive shipper rental and leasing options.

“With so many of our customers already using Crēdo shippers to protect payloads with critical temperature requirements, we’re confident the addition of this drop point will allow us to better serve customers who are looking to improve payload volume efficiency and lower distribution costs.”

To better support the rapidly expanding Crēdo on Demand program, the Peli BioThermal says it is expanding both number of network stations, which act as the origin point for new assets, provide services including, and act as end of rental drop-off – as well as the number of drop points.

The new Toronto drop point is one of more than 50 new drop points planned for 2018, including eight drop points in the US and 13 drop points across Europe already announced.
