Our EcoCoolBox was awarded two packaging awards!



Our Believe policy rests on six key principles



Together we realize your cooling solutions

Do you want to ship chilled or conditioned?

Coolpack offers total solutions for chilled and conditioned shipping. In addition to the cooling elements, gel packs, foam packs and sponge packs produced at our location, you will also find various packaging products in our range. Because well-refrigerated shipping is always a combination of adding cooling elements and insulating.

Popular cooling packaging are the EPS boxes, also called tempex boxes. These white polystyrene cooling boxes are lightweight, have a high insulation value and protect your products well. They are reusable, but if you want to use the insulation box in the long term, the sturdy EPP boxes can also be interesting.

Environmentally conscious shipping packaging is increasingly popular. A nice development to see, and that is why we are proud to offer the EcoCoolBox: an ecological insulating shipping box which is made entirely of cardboard and paper fibres. The end user can therefore simply dispose of the box with the old paper after use. It is not for nothing that this innovative insulating box made of mono-material won an NL Packaging Award in 2020.
