What this means to you is having to make quick adjustments to your frozen food shipping methods, especially with the higher demand of frozen items such as novelty ice cream treats and tubs of ice cream.
Polar Dry Ice Containers Help Keep Ice Cream & Food FrozenPolar Insulated Dry Ice Containers provide you with the means of transporting your frozen product, and keeping it frozen, until it reaches its final destination. No one wants to be on the other end of the line with the customer complaining that they received ice cream that is soft, or food that is partially thawed. Whether you are shipping a single pick or a bulk shipment of frozen foods, we have a full range of dry ice containers ranging from 2 cubic foot chests up to 57 cubic foot uprights. Polar containers are made of two walls of polyethylene plastic that is long lasting, repairable and dependable, with a 3” layer of foam insulation in between the walls. The insulation provides added stability and an R value of 19, so you can be confident that your product remains frozen.
