Pelican BioThermal, temperature controlled packaging company, has opened a new network station and service center in Indianapolis. The facility will service, refurbish, repair, and condition Pelican BioThermal’s reusable Crēdo on Demand shippers, which offer a rental option for temperature controlled containers. In addition, the location will be a full Service Center for Pelican’s industry line of reusable parcel shippers. The Indianapolis facility adds to Pelican BioThermal’s growing footprint of network stations and drop points, planned to exceed 100 sites by early 2019.
The network station and service center is located in close proximity to the Indianapolis International Airport, a major logistics hub for carriers such as FedEx, United Airlines Cargo and Cargolux, three of the largest air cargo carriers in the world. Additionally, the Indianapolis Metropolitan area is home to many of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, including the Eli Lilly Global Headquarters and Roche Diagnostics North America Headquarters. The city is also host to major offices for Siemens, Baxter, Cook Pharmica, Covance Laboratories, BioStorage Technologies, Sentry BioPharma Services, and Evonik, making this a prime location for Pelican Biothermal to offer services.
“This new network station and service center represents an investment in Indiana’s growing pharmaceutical and biomedical industry and is an indication of our industry’s growth overall,” said Dominic Hyde, vice president of Crēdo on Demand. “Our aim with this location is to increase convenience and flexibility for our customers to select the best locations for their business.”
The 50,000 square foot facility in the Plainfield, Indiana Gateway Business Park will be one of the largest locations in the quickly growing Crēdo™ on Demand network. An entire team is being hired to staff the facility.
