Today FedEx launched a new service for deep frozen shipments that is a non-hazardous and more environmentally-friendly alternative to dry ice. Read more about it here: http://news.fedex.com/deepfrozen.
Some of the benefits include:
· Up to 10 days of holding time (<-150C) to support complex international moves
· Elimination of dry ice, removing the need to re-ice shipments or purchase, inventory or manage insulated boxes
· No need to train personnel on handling hazardous materials
· Reduced environmental impact since the non-dangerous goods container is recycled and liquid nitrogen evaporates harmlessly
