Helping you to validate our transport boxes on receipt of your component orders

A visual guide to identifying the boxes

Editorial note: 7 April 2022 - a new webpage for the short journey transport box published

Editorial note: 31 January 2022 - please note the visual guide in the item below is no longer available. Please refer to the revised validation times


It is important you can identify the type of box in order to validate the transportation time, to confirm the cold chain has not been breached during transport.  We use 3 different boxes, which are:

  • Long journey
  • Medium short journey
  • Small short journey

To help you distinguish them, we’ve produced a visual guide, including specifications for component and capacity, temperature stabilisation material and maximum journey time.

If you have any queries please contact your Customer Service Manager.
