By Termopod, LLC
The Renewable, Sustainable Temperature-Control System for Packaging & Shipping
ThermoPod’s® innovative, eco-and-user-friendly products are ideal for today’s temperature-control and protective packaging markets. Freight can be expensive, however, the fact that our products ship collapsed and slightly compressed make them more affordable. Additionally, they are user-friendly, curbside recyclable and, in many applications, compostable. ThermoPod®, LLC., offers a variety of insulation solutions specifically designed with ultra-insulating padding made from select, purified, enhanced fibers that are highly absorbent for the containment of undesirable condensation or product leakage.
Where it all Began…
Our innovative invention, the original ThermoPod® temperature-control and protective packaging system [U.S. Patent No. 6,875,486], finished first runner-up in a national competition, sponsored by INDA, at the Research, Innovation & Science for engineered Fabrics Conference, in Baltimore, MD.
The Next Phase…
ThermoKeepers® are cost-effective, ecological, two-piece fiber insulating liners that replace expanded polystyrene 6-piece inserts and 1-piece tubs. Outdated, petroleum-based foam applications require expensive dies, have limited cushioning, and zero absorption properties. Unlike EPS, our material will neither chip nor crack, which ensures that there will be ZERO shrinkage of either packaging or cargo.
Importantly, EPS is not biodegradable, compostable nor entirely suitable for re-use.
A Brief History…
We entered the cold-chain and protective packaging market in 1999.
Our goal was/is to service those industries with innovative, sustainable products that are user-and-environmentally-friendly, yet cost effective.
Our unique business model, based on patents and other IP, allows us to outsource our manufacturing to multiple, strategically located, ISO 9000 certified suppliers in the USA and Mexico.
This eliminates the need for “brick and mortar“, capital intensive equipment, employees, inventory, etc; It also enables us to invoice and ship direct. Multiple locations mean cutting freight costs – because we are never far from a given client!
All of this saves you money!
Changing The Future of Packaging
Unlike EPS foam manufacturers, we do not have to charge customers for expensive dies.
Our natural fiber insulation liners can be cut to any size by simply moving the cutter(s), eliminating the need/expense for holding stock.
We are now a “one-stop-shop“, supplying all your packaging needs from Thermopod Mailers, to ThermoKeeper Shippers to EZ ThermoPallet Covers.
Unlike other “green” competitors we excel at shipping with gel packs or dry ice – our insulative product will not deteriorate from condensation – it is simply wicked away.

Six Ways Our Products Enhance Your Bottom Line
Natural fiber insulation is better for the environment, and saves you money. Petroleum pricing can be volatile.
Unlike foam which can break, crack and chip, Natural fibers will not compromise your shipment security.
With natural fibers, there is “Zero Shrink”, and you may avoid the cost of re-shipment due to packing failure.
Our insulation is compactable, for BIG SAVINGS on in-bound freight, as compare to non-compactable EPS. FIVE trucks of theirs equals one truck for us!
Our 2-Piece A/B Liner System takes less time to fulfill than EPS 6-Piece panel products – saving you labor & time.
As with in-bound freight, our liners require less than 20% of the warehouse space needed for stocking EPS Foam products.
