Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire, UK, 4th October 2017 – Softbox Systems, a leading global innovator and provider of cold chain packaging for the pharmaceutical industry, today announces the launch of AEON, the next generation of reusable high-performance parcel shippers.
AEON, which means ‘an indefinite and very long period of time’, positions Softbox Systems as a market leader in the reusable temperature control parcel shipping sector. The new parcel shipper uses Vacuum Insulation Panels and Phase Change Modules, to enable in excess of 96-hour temperature stability and long term repeatable high performance in reuse.
Clive Bryant, European Sales and Marketing Director at Softbox Systems, commented:
“AEON brings many innovative features that we believe make us stand out from the competition. We have developed a shipper that doesn’t exist in the market today – a shipper that improves user experience, can be confidently and reliably reused for a long period of time and is easily and cost effectively refurbished by the client.
We know our customers are looking to solve three main challenges: ensure product integrity, reduce total cost of ownership and eliminate packaging waste. AEON solves all these challenges and more.”
Initially, AEON is going to be sold in three payload sizes for 2⁰C to 8⁰C temperature control. Other temperature ranges (15⁰C to 25⁰C and -20⁰C) will be launched in December 2017.
