Temperature-sensitive products: UPS

UPS has announced "significant expansion" of its capabilities for shipment of temperature-sensitive medical items, including round-the-clock refrigeration or replenishment of dry ice as necessary. UPS has implemented Proactive Response, a sophisticated monitoring tool that matches data on where a package is located compared with where it should be. The company is operating its cold-chain services in 72 countries. UPS is to open a 20000 m3 healthcare distribution facility in Roermond, The Netherlands, later this year.
