Indianapolis facility to support full range of reusable Crēdo™ offerings
INDIANAPOLIS – September 11, 2018 – Pelican BioThermal, the global name in temperature controlled packaging, announces the opening of a new network station & service center in Indianapolis. The facility will service, refurbish, repair and condition Pelican BioThermal’s reusable Crēdo™ on Demand shippers, which offer a high performance, flexible rental option for temperature controlled containers, such as the Crēdo™ Cargo. In addition, the location will be a full Service Center for Pelican’s industry leading line of reusable parcel shippers, Crēdo™ Cube. The Indianapolis facility adds to Pelican BioThermal’s growing footprint of network stations and drop points, planned to exceed 100 sites by early 2019.
The network station and service center is located in close proximity to the Indianapolis International Airport, a major logistics hub for carriers such as FedEx, United Airlines Cargo and Cargolux, three of the largest air cargo carriers in the world. Additionally, the Indianapolis Metropolitan area is home to many of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, including the Eli Lilly Global Headquarters and Roche Diagnostics North America Headquarters. The city is also host to major offices for Siemens, Baxter, Cook Pharmica, Covance Laboratories, BioStorage Technologies, Sentry BioPharma Services and Evonik, making this a prime location for Pelican Biothermal to offer services.
"This new network station & service center represents an investment in Indiana’s growing pharmaceutical and biomedical industry and is an indication of our industries growth overall," said Dominic Hyde, vice president of Crēdo on Demand. "Our aim with this location is to increase convenience and flexibility for our customers to select the best locations for their business."
The 50,000 square foot facility in the Plainfield, Indiana Gateway Business Park will be one of the largest locations in the quickly growing Crēdo™ on Demand network. An entire team of Pelican BioThermal experts are being hired to staff the facility and offer the level of superior service achieved at network stations & service centers worldwide. This facility is owned and operated by Pelican BioThermal, so all activities will focus on their Crēdo Cube and Crēdo on Demand offerings, providing total commitment to customer needs.
The location complements the existing and expanding network of service centers, network stations and rental drop-off points spanning Europe, Asia and the Americas, providing customers with an additional option for returning Crēdo on Demand assets at the end of the rental period, including Crēdo™ Xtreme and Crēdo Cargo temperature controlled containers.
The Crēdo™ on Demand service is a high performance, cost effective temperature controlled shipper rental program allowing organizations to choose the shipper application that best fits the company’s requirements, logistics profile and budget.
