Softbox Systems is proud to announce that it has won a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, this time in the category of Innovation to add to that won in 2011 for International Trade.
The award was granted for Softbox innovation in designing, developing and commercialising its range of Silverpod Air Cargo Temperature Control systems for shipping temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals. Softbox development of Silverpods represented a completely new way of looking at how best to optimise the use of cargo space within wide-bodied aircraft to reduce shipping costs and CO2 emissions whilst ensure maximum efficacy of pharmaceuticals – creating a completely new patented generation of shipping systems.
Mark Hammond, Softbox Systems Sales Director, comments; “Since their introduction in 2009, Silverpod’s have formed a key part of our solution offering and are now used by more than half the worlds top 50 pharmaceutical companies and their 3PL’s to transport temperature sensitive finished drugs. The Silverpod brand has become synonymous with providing a high performance cost effective alternative to using other passive and active shipping systems. To support our clients, we have made a significant investment to manufacture and supply Silverpod’s at strategic locations around the world from our sites in the UK, USA, India and Singapore. Everyone in our team is very proud to have won a second prestigious Queens Award that recognises our ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence.”
