A Smarter Cold Chain for a Brighter Future

The modern cold chain helps solve global issues around food safety, food waste and environmental impact—one temperature-controlled distribution network at a time.

In the global food logistics industry, the process of getting food from source to store has many complex interdependencies—none more so than the cold chain. Indeed, cold chains now extend across the globe and play a vital role in food production and distribution.

Critical to food safety and the prevention of disease, cold chains ensure temperature-sensitive products reach consumers in the freshest and safest condition. Without them, the food logistics industry as we know it today would look very different, as would the range and quality of foods we’ve come to expect at our local supermarkets. Transporting foods that require refrigeration at scale, whether across the country or around the world, would be impossible. Food would quickly spoil, become contaminated, and go to waste—and food wastage is something we cannot afford.

As pressure on the global food industry mounts, the need for robust and dependable cold chains matters more than ever. As we will explore in this white paper, modern technologies are helping food producers, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors to carefully control and monitor cold chains for optimum performance—and, ultimately, less food contamination, spoilage and waste.
