What are the benefits of using phase change materials (PCMs) instead of ice for cold shipments? To demonstrate the benefits of PCMs, Microtek performed an experiment by sending a package containing chocolate across the country in the middle of summer.
This guide outlines the study and identifies three key benefits of PCM pouches by showing:
- Wider Range of Temperatures
- Extended Hold of Temperature
- Added Value of PCM
While ice packs work for many logistic scenarios, it is important to identify all of the factors and costs involved in transportation lanes before settling for a solution. When all aspects of a project are identified, PCMs are often a better solution, providing your brand with a more versatile, safer and valuable alternative.
