Temperature-controlled container company CSafe Global is tapping into the pharmaceutical sector in Latin America with its new hub in São Paulo, Brazil.
The new facility is the company’s first in Brazil.
Tom Weir, chief operating officer of CSafe Global, explained: “Right now, we’re able to easily repair and maintain containers at service centers in other locations and then move them to customers or hubs as needed.
“However, should the demand grow to the point that it’s more efficient to repair the containers locally, we will certainly consider expanding the hub into a service center staffed with highly-trained CSafe technicians to fully service and maintain our RKN and RAP container fleet for Latin America.”
Weir added: “Pharmaceutical manufacturing has really taken off in Brazil in recent years and demand has spiked for our active containers to transport temperature-sensitive products.
“With the growth we’ve seen, we need to have containers in the area for on-demand use which means setting up a hub operation where we can have containers inspected, cleaned and released for usage.”
