Total Landed Cost Analysis
Before determining what temperature-controlled solution to use for the shipment, it’s important to understand what makes up the total cost of using different solutions. For example, the cost of the packaging solution itself is usually only accounting for a small part of the total cost for the shipment.
There are also other direct costs such as airfreight, handling, and trucking. On top of the direct costs, there are further aspects such as CO2 emissions, training and of course how well the solution can keep the product safe in predictable or unpredictable scenarios.
