The cold chain concerns the transport of food, pharmaceutical, or chemical products. These products require storing and transporting in strictly specified ranges of temperature.
The cold chain management concerns the creation of the integrated model of distribution focused on three key factors: i.e. product properties, performance characteristics, distribution channels, and places of origin and destination of the product.
The goods requiring transportation and storing in precisely specified temperatures can be included in several different groups.
Among them, there are food products i.e. meat, dairy products, fruit and vegetables, deep-frozen products, flowers and plants, as well as products of dissimilar sectors, i.e. chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other medical purposes goods.
Agricultural and fishery products during transport often require low temperature conditions of transport, in order to meet the basic performance of the product.
Enterprises must change the product logistics and transport conditions for cold chains that can be applied to the field of logistics and ensure its quality.
Logistics and transport enterprises are in the process that the performance and characteristics of the product are difficult to effectively preserve.
Enterprises must set up a good supervision system and the cold chain transportation equipment. Professionals need to assess the regulatory system.
The oldest model of distribution in the cold chain is the transport by vehicles equipped with refrigeration units which can control the temperature inside the vehicle compartment.
The cold chain is a dynamic process and ensuring an effective cold chain supply from manufacturer to patient is no easy task. Temperature controlled logistics presents complex challenges such as regulatory compliance and entering emerging markets.
Managing the supply chain of specialized products concerns the logistics services of many groups of products in monitored temperature range.
Each group has its own specific parameters of storing and transporting, which if not kept are dangerous for the consumers and may result in the withdrawal of batches of goods from the market.
Ensuring a global temperature-controlled supply chain requires a more strategic approach to supply chain management and the solutions implemented must also provide greater flexibility to cope with these differences.
Unsurprisingly, Europe and Asia were identified as the two main markets for those looking at broadening their supply chain beyond the USA.
The objective of the Scheme of Cold Chain in India is Value Addition and Preservation Infrastructure which is to provide integrated cold chain and preservation infrastructure facilities, without any break, from the farm gate to the consumer.
It covers creation of infrastructure facilities along the entire supply chain viz. pre-cooling, weighing, sorting, grading, waxing facilities at farm level, multi product/ multi temperature cold storage, CA storage, packing facility, IQF, blast freezing in the distribution hub and reefer vans, mobile cooling units for facilitating distribution of horticulture, organic produce, marine, dairy, meat, and poultry etc.
The scheme allows flexibility in project planning with special emphasis on creation of cold chain infrastructure at farm level.
The integrated cold chain project is set up by Partnership / Proprietorship Firms, Companies, Corporations, Cooperatives, Self Help Groups (SHGs), Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs), NGOs, Central / State PSUs, etc. subject to fulfilment of eligibility conditions of scheme guidelines.
The cold chain connects the UK to the world, it makes significant trade in perishable goods possible and is at the foundation of global food and pharmaceutical security.
Cold chain businesses are being seen globally as attractive long-term investment opportunities. The UK is no exception in this and a number of major international acquisitions of cold chain businesses have taken place in recent years.
The Asia Pacific Cold Chain Market can be segmented into following categories for further analysis.
It is important that suitable temperature control be maintained from as soon as is feasible to as close as possible to consumption.
From the raw materials stage to the various distribution storage facilities a commodity passes through, transport refrigeration keeps it at the temperature required to maximize storage life and quality for many days, weeks, and months between cold storage facilities.
Data Technology is being used by cold chain firms to build the best shipping and package design for a given supply chain in order to cut costs throughout the process.
Additional data collected in the packaging world may be used to drive action, allowing us to track assets. Companies may use data logger and asset information to make faster choices, do predictive analysis, improve continuously, and drive upstream and downstream decision making.
All of this will enable remote event notification, identifying the optimum next step in packaging and real-world situations, automating redeployment in the case of loss, and leveraging event data to fine-tune the whole supply chain.
The most modern IoT sensor technology, as well as near real-time tracking and data-analytics capabilities, provide our clients with visibility into the whereabouts of their shipments.
The Digital Visibility Platform is sensor-agnostic and provides our containers with a prescriptive analysis of vaccination conditions down to the unit level, making it an obvious option for such a critical worldwide project.
Beyond vaccines, the combined solution will track critical parameters for drugs and biologics such as location, temperature, and vibration, as well as data streams about weather, traffic, flight schedules, and other factors, to not only eliminate supply chain blind spots but also to improve overall supply chain efficiency.
Cold chain uses a wide range of refrigerants and consumes too much energy for storing temperature-sensitive products, making it a challenging environment for becoming sustainable.
Innovative solutions are necessary to strike the right balance between the energy-intensive processes of cold chain logistics and addressing the various environmental issues that are starting to impact everyday life.
These solar-powered cold container rooms are used for the storage and transportation of perishable goods. Solar Freeze also provides cold storage as a service for the farmers, who can access information about their products using a mobile application.
The Asia Pacific Cold Chain market has seen a considerable mobilization of technological implementation under its environmental and sustainable logistics integration policy within the operational requirements of each of the stakeholders.
Usually the cold chain depends on four aspects of frozen storage, frozen processing, refrigerated transportation and distribution, and finally frozen sales.
Cold Chain has four stages: refrigeration processing, refrigeration distribution, refrigeration storage and refrigeration sale. And in every stage, there are standard operating procedures to ensure the safety and quality of the foods from the processing till to customers or consumers.
Snowman Logistics India has been part of the mobilization process of sustainability and cold chain perspectives in the Indian market of cold chain logistics.
Warehouse infrastructure comprises advanced equipment handling and racking systems, along with WMS and ERP systems.
This allows them to not only analyze their own performance metrics for maintaining high standards of service, but also provide customers with valuable data that aids their inventory management and optimization.
The real-time data logging system enables us to monitor temperature of products, both in our temperature-controlled warehouses and our fleet of Reefer Vehicles.
DHL Cold Chain Infrastructure India has been part of the infrastructure and digitised mobilisation of cold chain facilities throughout the country at various levels of requirements.
It has developed An intelligent IT platform, provided by the logistics service provider, underpins the physical network. Monitoring solutions establish checkpoints of visibility that enable more proactive control of the shipment and allow for intervention should an adverse situation arise.
The company uses the Big Data and Analytics integration to have a track on the Temperature Management segment of operational requirements placed within the operating stakeholder products.
Active packaging solutions will soon incorporate report-back technology such as GPS and telemetry to ensure the safety of shipments. The technology of production is being employed into development alongside the Envirotainer’s cold chain control initiatives in India.
