We guarantee quality throughout the Cold Chain process

The only Brazilian company in the segment to be ISO 9001: 2015 certified, Grupo Polar specializes in the development of specific solutions that guarantee the thermal integrity of the product during transportation and storage. With almost 20 years of experience, our goal is to disseminate knowledge in order to improve logistics and processes throughout the Cold Chain in Brazil and worldwide.

We provide technology and innovation in Cold Chain

During the preparation process of a medicinal product, it is necessary to set the storage and preservation temperature so that its characteristics are maintained with quality and the therapeutic effects achieved effectively. Transport is undoubtedly the biggest challenge of the whole life of this product category, since the variables that make up cargo logistics – such as the ambient temperature and the tropicality of a country with dimensions such as Brazil – translate even more the efforts which must be applied to the file.

Aware of the needs and bottlenecks of this segment, Grupo Polar develops studies and continually invests in research and development (R & D) to provide intelligent and customized solutions that meet the needs of the pharmaceutical, logistics and laboratory industries in order to guarantee product integrity and the safety of the entire cold chain regardless of the temperature range.
