We are your friends in Cold Chain

We Have Purpose

When your shipment must stay cool before pickup to after delivery, you can rely on Thermal Shipping Solutions to provide you a comprehensive packaging system that is truly sustainable. Our quest to be the best green alternative has allowed us to be a respected leader in cold chain packaging for last-mile shipments.  Our solutions provide a sustainable alternative to EPS coolers without compromising performance, our environment, or our integrity. 


We Educate

For decades there had been no trustworthy alternatives to rigid cooler boxes.  The unsatisfied demand for sustainable packaging has allowed pseudo-science products to pollute the marketplace with lies and  misinformation.  Only by educating customers about the realities of biodegradability, recyclability, compostability, along with dim weight calculation, early freeze buffering, material handling and optimization can you make an informed decision about whom to trust.  We teach you about ISTA standards of testing and optimal use of refrigerants.


We Are Serious About Sustainability

We don't have the antiquated "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. Almost all alternatives to EPS have a poor end-of-life scenario.  Our competitors have tricked many well-meaning customers by telling them to "place insulation in your trash guilt-free" based on the lie that trash biodegrades in a landfill. There is pervasive misinformation regarding biodegradation, especially in landfills, and many companies utilizing denim, jute, bamboo, cotton, wool, and rock wool profit from it. Thermal Shipping Solutions is an advocate for the regenerative design of end-to-end supply chains. 


§ 260.8 Degradable claims.

(c) It is deceptive to make an unqualified degradable claim for items entering the solid waste stream if the items do not completely decompose within one year after customary disposal. Unqualified degradable claims for items that are customarily disposed in landfills, incinerators, and recycling facilities are deceptive because these locations do not present conditions in which complete decomposition will occur within one year.

We have been tried and tested by several government agencies as well as concerned members of local municipalities. Admirably, these materials are often sourced from recycled or sustainable sources.  Denim comes from blue jeans, jute from burlap sacks, and cellulose from newsprint.  Unfortunately, they all require a significant percentage of polyester fiber to glue the organic fibers together and provide loft.  Not only is this material not biodegradable or compostable, it is a heavier and needlessly expensive and complex alternative. 


We Fight the Fight

We once manufactured and sold cellulose.  We once manufactured and sold denim.  We even sold PET with paper lamination. That stopped. We shifted from solely selling you what you request, to educating you how to determine what you really need to achieve the goals you truly care about.  We learned that skipping this vital step would leave you with a product that isn't much better than snake oil and a product that is more expensive than a turboencabulator.  Educating the customer, no matter their reputation in the industry, must always be done.


We Close the Loop

Our Renewliner is the only product that insulates and can be recycled.  It is made from recycled material and becomes recycled material. And we hope, that in addition to our already-satisfied customers, you too will also become an advocate for sustainable alternatives in cold chain packaging.
