Logistics - Safeguarding temperature-sensitive cargo in transit
SilverSkin® Thermal Covers and liners for Logistics
Insulating temperature-sensitive freight during transportation has never been more challenging than in today’s connected global world. Softbox® SilverSkin® thermal protective solutions for logistics is a protective insulation range that has been configured to deal with the rigours of modern logistics processes. Each solution offers a safeguard against the time and temperature differentials often encountered as temperature sensitive freight are moved by air, sea and land, nationally and internationally, around the globe.
Airport Ramp Protection
Designed to be fitted temporarily over cargo security nets often found on transiting between warehouse and aircraft, SilverSkin® thermal covers for logistics help provide protection against short-term exposure to uncontrolled ambient temperatures.
Damaging windchill or harsh direct sunlight can cause cargoes to often experience temperature spikes whilst stationary or transiting on the ramp. With Softbox® SilverSkin® thermal covers for logistics it is possible to create a stable air temperatures beneath the insulating cover, reducing temperature exchange between the shipped product and its external ambient environment.
Protection for cargo while loading onto aircraft
Cookie Sheet / PAG / PMC Thermal Covers
Every cover in the SilverSkin™ thermal range will ensure that temperature-sensitive air cargo positioned on PAG or PMC cookie sheets for air transportation is adequately protected. Effective at preventing temperature spikes in ambient conditions whilst on the ramp, these high-performance covers also provide a stable environment for temperature sensitive cargo in both upper and lower deck aircraft positions. Ramp-only and whole-journey SilverSkin® thermal cover solutions are also available.
Protecting cargo from excursions
When shipping temperature-sensitive freight by sea, the need to maintain temperature stability for extended durations is paramount. SilverSkin® shipping container liners are optimal product temperature stabilisers.
By creating a thermal barrier inside the shipping container, our SilverSkin® container liners provide an insulating layer against radiated heat and exposure to windchill. Additionally, they also help significantly reduce the risk of condensation forming inside the container during transportation.
Manufactured from high-performance insulation materials, SoftBox® SilverSkin® container liners ensure repeatable thermal protection for your temperature-sensitive ocean freight shipments.
