CSafe Global, a provider of temperature-controlled container solutions for the transport of pharmaceuticals, has expanded its global reach and local presence with the opening of a new hub operation in São Paulo, Brazil.

This represents the latest addition to CSafe’s worldwide container operations facilities and the first in Brazil.

“Pharmaceutical manufacturing has really taken off in Brazil in recent years and demand has spiked for our active containers to transport temperature-sensitive products,” explains Tom Weir, Chief Operating Officer for CSafe Global. “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. We’ve partnered with Quantum Logistics to make units available at the top-of-the-line Multihog warehouse facility, where we will have at least 6,000 square feet of space to store CSafe RKN and RAP containers.”

The hub location in São Paulo provides a drop location for one-way inbound traffic coming into Brazil as well. In an effort to serve customers where they are, if the demand in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin America increases, CSafe says that it could expand the operation.
