Tessol offers a wide range of eco-friendly solutions including PLUGnCHILL®, a temperature-controlled trucking solution and TAMsys®, a specialized last mile delivery solution and wireless temperature monitoring platform. Commenting on this agreement, CEO Rajat Gupta said, “The cold chain logistics industry contributes heavily to GHG emissions and needs a combination of transformative technology along with advanced monitoring solutions. We are a leader in designing complete solutions that meet this need and are excited to be working with the best-in-class materials provider, PCS.”

Tessol will market and distribute innovative BioPCM® solutions like Apollo™ Panels in India and partner with PCS to build new applications based on the BioPCM® technology platform, eliminating medicine/food waste and lowering the carbon footprint caused by refrigeration.

“We are thrilled to partner with innovative solution provider, Tessol, and are excited to combine synergies focused on the last mile delivery space.  Designing smart materials using naturally available raw materials is the cornerstone of our innovation that makes the BioPCM® platform unique. This partnership will bring the best of both worlds to the Indian market as well as to customers worldwide,” said Govi Rao, CEO of PCS.

About Tessol:

Tessol, a leader in Cold Chain Mobility and Monitoring Solutions, aims to make the temperature-controlled supply chain “Viable, Reliable and Sustainable”. Distribution of temperature-sensitive products is a huge challenge in India and other developing economies because of the lack of reliable options and the high cost incurred on cold chain transport. Tessol solutions allow brands and distributors to offer end-to-end transportation of packages from source to customer without breaking the cold chain up.
