Cold Shipping Package Provided by FedEx

Cold Shipping Package Provided by FedEx

Keep your temperature-sensitive shipments between 2°C and 8°C without the weight, hassle and expense of using gel packs or dry ice.  

Each of the five cold shipping packages includes a chilling unit activated by the shipper and placed in the box with the shipment. The unit continuously evaporates small amounts of water at a low pressure, keeping your shipment at 2°C to 8°C for up to 48 or 96 hours,* depending on the packaging option you choose.

*Actual cooling duration varies, depending on external temperatures.

  • Constant temperature: Keep your shipment in a consistent 2°C to 8°C environment.
  • Five box sizes: Small standard, medium standard, large standard, medium extended, large extended.
  • Two cooling duration options: Keep shipments cool up to 48 hours with our standard unit (available for all three sizes) or up to 96 hours with our extended duration unit (available in medium and large).*
  • Lightweight: Relative to dry ice or gel packs, you'll pay less to ship the unit itself.
  • Hassle-free preparation: Simply press a button to start the unit right before you pack it.
  • Infectious and non-infectious substance compliance: For all infectious substances, you must use inner packaging that meets IATA Packing Instruction 650 for UN 3373 only.
  • Replacement cooling engines: Easily replace an expired cooling engine on your cold shipping package. Engines are available in all five package sizes.

*Actual cooling duration varies, depending on external temperatures.
