Although globalisation significantly reduces the vastness between various regions worldwide, the physical division of these same regions is still a prominent reality. As the distances between regions widen, the higher the possibility that shipments are susceptible to damages in any complex transport operations.
Damages to goods can range from impacts to undesired temperature fluctuations inclusively, especially for perishables like food produce, their quality will deteriorate overtime due to the sustainability of their chemical reactions is highly dependent on low temperature consistency.
Timely coordination is necessary to efficiently transport a shipment and to prevent any delays that can have undesirable consequences. To safeguard cargoes from sustaining damages throughout a supply chain process, companies from pharmaceutical, medical and food & beverage industries are progressively relying on cold chain.
