Insulated BOX

Cold in a BOX

The BOX range consists of small volume insulated transport boxes that can be qualified as insulated packaging.

BOX insulated boxes are mainly intended to be used for last mile logistics.

OLIVO BOX is a range of reusable insulated boxes designed for use by logistics professionals delivering directly to the consumer.

Ergonomic cold boxes

BOX insulated delivery boxes are a concentrate of ergonomics and thermal know-how offering the following advantages:

    • lightweight packaging to facilitate handling and carrying to the customer
    • solidity and insulating capacity, with an innovative, recyclable material
    • eutectic refrigeration pack suited to different transport times
    • effective refrigeration able to maintain different cool temperatures
    • a complete solution (insulated boxes + refrigeration) that is simple to deploy and use.


To meet the needs of direct delivery to consumers, OLIVO has sought to adapt its temperature maintenance system insulated boxes specially designed for last mile logistics.

For the solution to be effective and satisfactory to our customers, we had to find the cold BOX that would guarantee the desired thermal result and be as lightweight and compact as possible.


Logistics challenge

We therefore took an ergonomic approach: cold boxes capable of keeping goods at the right temperature whilst being able to be used with a maximum of efficiency, safety and comfort.

The weight and dimensions of the insulated  boxes are therefore important criteria:

  • smaller delivery vehicles
  • electric vehicles
  • manual carrying to the customer in the case of home deliveries

OLIVO insulated boxes maintain the temperature of temperature-sensitive products, whether it is a temperature above or below zero. Dry products not requiring thermal protection can be packaged in plastic trays.

There are more and more deliveries of smaller and smaller packages. The BOX type  insulated containers can be easily integrated into e-commerce order preparation using plastic crates.


For the BOX range, OLIVO has chosen to use a fantastic material: expanded polypropylene, commonly known as EPP.
EPP is a closed-cell polypropylene foam. It is 100% recyclable and it is produced using steam. This makes EPP an environmentally friendly or “green” material.
Be aware though that, while visually EPP resembles expanded polystyrene, it is actually a totally different material.

The advantages of EPP

EPP is known for its strength and light weight, but in fact it boasts many qualities:

  • solid with excellent structural strength, it is capable of bearing loads without being deformed
  • energy absorbing, EPP resists shocks without breaking
  • it is astonishingly lightweight in spite of its solidity, which means a real weight advantage compared to a traditional insulating material
  • made of expanded beads, EPP is a very good thermal insulator
    it is also a very good acoustic insulator, which means less noise during deliveries
  • it is a “green” material, with a production process that does not involve any compounds that are harmful to the environment, as well as being 100% recyclable
  • EPP is food safe and can be sterilised

Insulating capacity of transport boxes

BOX type insulated boxes are moulded in one piece from EPP. A single material provides boxes of different dimensions with their rigidity and their insulating.

The sides of the BOX insulated containers are between 30 and 35 mm thick to meet the thermal requirements. The thickness of the insulating material is the result of a satisfactory compromise between thermal performance and dimensions.

Reducing the thickness of the insulating material may seem attractive with a view to transporting more goods in the same space, but this would reduce the insulating capacity, thereby shortening the time the temperature can be maintained or consuming more cooling energy.

Eutectic refrigeration

The refrigeration of BOX type insulated containers with eutectic plates enables a positive (chilled products) or a negative temperature (frozen products) to be maintained for 12 hours or more. Which is a very good average for catering purposes, medical transport, chilled food storage, etc.

For transport in different ambient temperatures (summer, winter, intermediate seasons), you will know exactly how many eutectic plates you should place in the BOX rage for the required transport time.

The latest models of insulated boxes have grooves that can receive up to 9 eutectic packs.

This modular use of cooling packs is a reliable and easy to manage method for frozen product, catering, chilled food.

Cryogenic refrigeration

Solid dry ice can be used in insulated transport boxes, but only for frozen foodstuffs.

In this case, the lid of the insulated transport boxes can be fitted with a net to hold the slab of dry ice.

OLIVO calculates the exact quantity of dry ice needed for your transport times for you. Contact us for more information.


MINICRYO® innovation

OLIVO and its partner MESSER have used their previous experience to meet the challenge of miniaturising the SIBER SYSTEM ® cryogenic solution to produce dry ice for small boxes : thereby revolutionising the last miles logistics for chilled and frozen products.

EPP BOX range

OLIVO’s BOX range is expanding because there are more and more last mile logistics providers. Our latest model available is the thermo BOX 64.

BOX 64 is taller to take more large diameter pizzas and it features a very clever positioning of the eutectic plates.

Insulated BOX 64 can take up to 9 TOP 64 eutectic plates. The eutectic plates can be positioned horizontally or vertically. They can also be used to separate two orders in the same delivery box.

BOX 64 can be adapted to numerous configurations. Contact us and we will tell you how many TOP 64 plates you need for a TOP result
