“We’re thrilled to head back to Boston once again for the Cold Chain Global Forum,” said Claudia Rubino, divisional director – Cold Chain Portfolio, IQPC. “The Global Forum continues to be the leading event for temperature-controlled life science supply chains, and we’re pleased to have DuPont partner with us to help make the event a success.”

The event is designed to include eight pre-conference workshops, two in-depth master classes, two days of main conference sessions, roundtable discussions and panel discussions, and more than 14 hours of networking to discuss the most important challenges and most effective strategies and solutions within the cold chain industry.

DuPont will be featured in the comprehensive expo hall, featuring DuPont’s newest offering Tyvek® Xtreme™ W50, designed to bridge the gap between single-skin thermal covers and bulky thermal covers. DuPont™ Tyvek® Cargo Covers offer better control of temperature and moisture in shipments than traditional blankets and plastic wraps, which makes them ideal for shippers of perishables such as pharmaceutical, fruit, vegetable and floral products. Tyvek® Cargo Covers help reduce spoilage of perishables and help pharmaceuticals get to patients safely, For Greater Good™. For Greater Good™ is the promise of the DuPont™ Tyvek® brand. Tyvek® can provide the trusted protective barrier people need to worry less so they can focus on accomplishing bigger things – making the greater good possible.
