CarrierDirect has partnered with One Stop Critical to launch the latest in cold chain innovation: the Critical Cube. This new technology provides shippers the ability to move their less-than-truckload temperature-sensitive freight via dry van carriers, improving the speed and service level for critical shipments.
With the Critical Cube, shippers no longer need to wait for a refrigerated LTL carrier to consolidate loads or pay for a dedicated truck. Shippers can use the Cube to move temperature-sensitive freight in the faster, reliable dry van infrastructure. Using liquid CO2 and a digital controller, the unit can actively maintain temperatures as low as –30 degrees F for up to five days (while maintaining a +/-2 degrees F), making it suitable for moving products intra-state or coast-to-coast.
The Critical Cube is environmentally friendly and American-made, consisting entirely of Food and Drug Administration- and US Department of Agriculture-approved fiberglass, stainless steel, and insulation. The infrastructure can withstand the challenges of moving high-value or sensitive products, including pharmaceuticals, food products, and chemicals. There is 77 cubic feet of loadable space, making it large enough to fit any standard-size pallet up to 60 inches high, but compact enough to move two units side-by-side in a trailer.
“We are tremendously excited about this relationship with CarrierDirect and the opportunity to partner in taking the Critical Cube to the market,” said Kirk Stevens, president of One Stop Critical. “The reception of the Cube in the market has been extraordinary, and being able to offer it to CarrierDirect’s clientele will surely help to expand our footprint and expose more shippers to the high-value services that we offer.”
The Critical Cube is now available for intra-California shipments and will be introduced to other US regions in late 2013 and early 2014.
