Shipping Using Gel Packs-Chilled

The general guide for refrigerant packs is a minimum of 1:5 to 1:3 ratio. (For every 3 pounds of food you would put one pound of refrigerant) Larger shipments or containers may require additional refrigerant for best performance, depending on the length of your shipment. Extreme shipping methods may cause ice packs to migrate away from the product therefore, we recommend surrounding the product with ice packs, then fill any empty space with bubble, tissue or any other void fill.
