Temperature controlled packaging firm Peli BioThermal has opened a new drop point in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) as it continues to expand its presence in the Middle East.
As the company increases its infrastructure and operations in the Middle East, the new drop point is the latest location launched which it said “brings convenient, flexible shipping options to the region renowned for its temperature challenges”.
This new facility puts Peli BioThermal on track to realise its plan to exceed 100 network stations and drop points for its rental program in early 2019.
With healthcare expenditure in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) projected to reach $104.6 billion by 2022, according to a 2018 GCC Healthcare Industry Report by Alpen Capital, the region is a significant key growth area for Peli BioThermal.
The Jeddah facility furthers the expansion of the growing Crēdo on Demand rental program by providing additional drop points of return for reusable shipping assets providing protection of life sciences and pharmaceutical payloads transported globally.
Crēdo on Demand vice president, Dominic Hyde said the rental program is designed to provide customers with options.
He added: “Adding another drop point in key logistics hubs in the Middle East will allow our customers in pharmaceutical distribution the flexibility and convenience to choose the best drop-off location for their business needs.”
The Jeddah facility is focused on receipt of Peli BioThermal’s rented shippers through their Crēdo on Demand program, which provide a high performance, flexible rental option for temperature controlled containers such as Crēdo Cargo, CrēdoXtreme and Crēdo Cube.
The Crēdo on Demand rental program allows organisations to choose the shipper application that best fits their company’s requirements, logistics profile and budget.
