What is The Cold Chain?
Cold chain is a process strictly followed to ensure proper temperature control is maintained throughout the delivery. Packages must be delivered within 30 minutes. Client specific processes will be communicated via the app.
How do I know when I should follow The Cold Chain?
You will receive an automated message in the app reminding you the cold chain policy should be followed. You should read all instructions carefully to ensure the cold chain policy will not be breached and the packages will be delivered safely.

You must make sure before picking-up the package you have the relevant equipment and you are able to safely transport the package without breaching the cold chain. If you should encounter any issue, please let the client know prior to leaving the pick up destination.
