Japanese logistics company, Yamato Holdings, recently recently announced their intent to launch new cold chain parcel delivery service from its facility at Tokyo's Haneda Airport, using a brand-new cold storage vehicle specifically designed for shipping frozen goods.
The company aims to expand its market in countries across Asia, where the demand for cold-storage services is expanding rapidly.
In Southeast Asia, only big retailers and restaurants have their own cold chain networks. Yamato is hoping to fill the large demand for parcel -delivery services in the Asian sector that many analysts expect to grow stronger in the coming years.
Convenience stores in Southeast Asia, deal in more non-perishable items than frozen and chilled products.
The spread of cold chain logistics services is expected to help increase the variety of products on offer in such stores.
