TP3 Global continues rapid growth and expansion and supports the industry leading Temperature Controlled Logistics Forum this January in Frankfurt, Germany. TP3 Global are the official registration and welcome sponsor of the event and will also be showcasing their new thermal cover range for controlled room temperature products, SilverSkin QuattroTM. The entire SilverSkinTM range of thermal pallet covers are qualified, GDP compliant and designed for protection of cold chain and controlled room temperature shipments.
TP3 Global continues to support the Temperature Controlled Logistics Forum in Frankfurt, Germany 26-27th January 2016. This is a leading industry event for temperature controlled logistics, quality assurance and supply chain management professionals across life sciences and TP3 Global will be welcoming the global community to the event as official registration sponsors.
TP3 Global announces the launch of its new and innovative product SilverSkin Quattro™ incorporating SilverSkin BLAK ™ technology. Over twelve months of development has led to the creation of a new thermal protective material specifically engineered to protect controlled ambient pharmaceutical cargo in the supply chain.
Recent Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guideline changes have forced pharmaceutical companies to adopt thermal protection for controlled ambient goods during shipping. Being low cost, insulated thermal pallet covers have been widely regarded as a positive solution. But depending on what type of materials are used, there can be hidden costs or considerable savings…
Many global pharmaceutical companies have now tested and approved the revolutionary SilverSkin™ PH300 material for thermal protection of their temperature sensitive freight shipments.
The super compact multi-laminate is mainly used as primary insulation barrier for controlled room temperature product that needs to be kept between 2°C and 40°C (36F-104F) or similar parameters. Massive financial gains have been achieved due to the technically compact structure less than 1mm thick. Between 300 and 400 covers can be fitted on a standard pallet, in contrast to 20 to 30 more traditional thicker insulated blankets.
Not only does this have huge benefit to cost of shipping and warehouse space, there is massive operational advantage at the end of use, both at the warehouse and disposal. The SilverSkin™ PH300 material composite is suitable for ‘Waste to Energy’ incineration, making it far more attractive than standard landfill packaging.
Peter Lockett, co-founder and COO of TP3 Global, manufacturer of the SilverSkin™ PH300, says “It’s the pharmaceutical companies that have taken the time to test the PH300 in comparison to other solutions that have recognised that the PH300, despite its compact material composition, can provide the insulation performance required for wider tolerance shipments, land, sea or air.
TP3 has a range thicker SilverSkin™ insulation materials that are used in harsher shipping situations and tighter temperature parameters, but there is considerable advantage in considering PH300 where it suits the requirements.
People encountering the PH300 material for the first time often can’t comprehend how such compact material could possibly provide the insulation required and dismiss it immediately. The secret is in the materials used and the composition. The outer foil membranes have very low emissivity (lower is better for reflecting direct sunlight radiation) that sandwich a compressed insulation layer. This, together the integrity of cover design, have positive effect in slowing down the radiation and convection heat threats encountered in shipping routes, mainly airport ramp time”.

TP3 Global recently launched a community wide survey across the life sciences temperature controlled supply chain industry. The aim of this research was to find out more about how the life sciences and logistics industries are coping with increased regulatory and cost pressures whilst maintaining risk and excursion levels, particularly in light of the game changing EU GDP guidelines.
TP3 Global opens in France, bringing local distribution of its SilverSkin™ thermal pallet covers, blankets and wraps to Southern Europe including Italy, Spain, Portugal and North Africa.
Luc Ducaroir, formerly Senior VP Sales & Marketing and Contract Logistics for Kuehne + Nagel, has joined TP3 Global as Director for South Europe.
TP3 Global CEO, Clive Wheeldon says, “With such extensive logistics experience, Luc will bring excellent knowledge to the TP3 Global team as we continue to serve our customers on a local basis around the world. TP3 is one of the few thermal cover manufacturers with true global capability backed with extensive supply chain and temperature controlled packaging knowledge, Luc’s experience further strengthens this”.
