UPS delivers new service levels for Temperature True

Oct. 8, 2013
UPS announced new service levels for managing the full range of temperature-sensitive healthcare product as part of its UPS Temperature True portfolio.
UPS (NYSE:UPS) announced new service levels for managing the full range of temperature-sensitive healthcare product as part of its UPS Temperature True portfolio at the 11th annual Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Global Forum. With global growth in transportation of cold chain products, healthcare companies can now choose from tiered service levels based on the degree of control needed, leveraging both the speed of air and economies of ocean freight while ensuring protection in the supply chain. The newly expanded service offers more options for shipping temperature-sensitive products such as specialty pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, and diagnostics, as well as generic consumer health and veterinarian medicine. “We are seeing growth in the number of temperature-sensitive shipments due to the increasing cold chain regulations and expansion of generic products,” said Dirk Van Peteghem, vice-president of UPS Healthcare Logistics. “Listening to the marketplace, we are further broadening our UPS Temperature True portfolio to meet these needs while also helping companies ensure compliance for a broader range of product temperature requirements.”
Service levels include: •UPS Temperature True Plus for both active and passive shipments that maintains strict temperature ranges in transit. UPS’s existing service includes processes for managing shipments with a high degree of risk mitigation. •UPS Temperature True Standard is a new offering that is ideal for shipments that need lower levels of in-transit monitoring, while still helping healthcare companies maintain product compliance and peace of mind. •UPS Temperature True Saver, a first-to-market standardized ocean freight system for temperature-sensitive shipments, is being piloted with customers and will roll out early in 2014. This option is ideal for large-volume shipments where cost management and regulatory compliance are both paramount. To learn more, visit
