New Cr?do™ on Demand drop point part of ongoing Middle East expansion

Peli BioThermal, the global name in temperature controlled packaging, announces the opening of its new drop point in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, as the company continues to expand its presence in the Middle East.

As Peli BioThermal increases its infrastructure and operations in the Middle East, the new drop point is the latest location launched which 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 US$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 Peli BioThermal’s growing Cr?do™ 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.

“Our Cr?do on Demand rental program is designed to provide our customers with options,” said Dominic Hyde, vice president of Cr?do on Demand. “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 Cr?do on Demand program, which provide a high performance, flexible rental option for temperature controlled containers such as Cr?do Cargo, Cr?do™ Xtreme and Cr?do™ Cube. The Cr?do on Demand rental program allows organisations to choose the shipper application that best fits their company’s requirements, logistics profile and budget.
