Sonoco ThermoSafe Addresses UK Pharma Supply Chain Growth


Will grow rental program that features environmentally friendly packaging

Sonoco ThermoSafe, a temperature assurance packaging company, is expanding its Orion rental packaging program in the UK, as the need for sustainable packaging grows for temperature sensitive medicinal products. The UK has been focused on sustainability for some time, being ranked eighth in the Global Sustainability Index for the past two years.

The Orion reusable rental packaging program offers healthcare companies in the UK an environmentally friendly, local option to transport temperature-critical healthcare products including a growing number of biologics, vaccines and clinical supplies.

Located inside its Tring facility, the London Orion rental station will perform reclamation, cleaning, and refurbishment processes necessary to return Orion boxes back into circulation in “like new” quality condition, which is suitable for healthcare products. The temperature assurance boxes are then preconditioned and delivered just-in-time (JIT) to the pharma company for it to ship products to its customers, typically clinical sites, healthcare/distribution facilities, and now directly to patients.

“We’re excited to meet our local and regional customer’s requests for more sustainable packaging solutions in the UK and Europe. The Orion rental program is now available in the domestic market and the open station can scale to meet anticipated demand,” says Gary Morgan, general manager, Sonoco ThermoSafe Europe.
