CarrierDirect Teams With One Stop Critical for Cold-Chain Shipping

CarrierDirect has partnered with One Stop Critical to create a new container for moving temperature-sensitive freight on less-than-truckload (LTL) dry van carriers.

The Critical Cube eliminates the need to rely on a refrigerated LTL carrier to consolidate loads, or pay for a dedicated truck. Using liquid CO2 and a digital controller, the unit can maintain temperatures as low as negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit for up to five days, with a tolerance of plus or minus 2 degrees. According to Critical Care, the cube is ideal for intra-state or coast-to-coast moves. With 77 cubic feet of loadable space, it is made entirely of FDA and USDA-approved fiberglass, stainless steel and insulation. The unit fits on any standard-sized pallet up to 60 inches tall, but is compact enough to be loaded side-by-side in a trailer. The Critical Cube is currently available for intra-California shipments, and will be extended to other geographies across the U.S. in late 2013 and early 2014.
