TPPI provides a wide range of materials and products used for the transportation and protection of temperature sensitive materials including EPS containers and gel products. We also supply a variety of specialized containers using standard or alternate materials providing solutions customized to suit your specific needs as well as a variety of pre-tested containers that can provide an immediate solution to your temperature sensitive shipping requirements.
TPPI recommends that shippers understand their distribution flow including shipping times and temperatures at each stage. This information is critical to ensure that the correct package is selected or designed to ensure temperature sensitive materials are properly protected during the shipping process. We have worked for our customers from developing protocols for the collection of data to educating our customers in understanding their distribution process.

Our partners include some of the industries best package designers and testing laboratories ensuring a high degree of quality and results from the final packages.
Our Team has been using EPI an oxo-biodegradable plastic additive technology. It is used in our products for the concern of environmental issues. This Canadian developed additive technology allows products made from polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) to degrade, and in most instances biodegrade at a much higher rate compared to products produced without additives.
