Phononic announced its Active Cooling Solutions (ACS) platform, a full-service, sustainable solution to solve end-to-end cold chain fulfillment needs for the grocery industry.
“Today, there is a lack of an end-to-end cold-chain solution that is effective and provides flexibility, sustainability and cost advantages. Phononic’s ACS platform addresses this gap – providing on-demand cooling and freezing on order through-put achieving unprecedented energy savings,” says Dana Krug, SVP at Phononic. “Our State of Online Grocery Shopping annual report showed that 67% of retailers are planning to spend between $500,000-1.5 million on cold chain technology and/or fulfillment this year. The ACS Connected Services platform is proven through retail and automation partnerships as the best solution for more precise and secure cooling and freezing from storage to curbside pickup to last mile, with critical traceability for retailers' cold chain fulfillment needs.”
