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.

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.
