The scope of refrigerated supply chains is far broader today than it was a few years ago. Modern setups must adapt to rapid shifts in consumer preferences, satisfy constant demand and comply with increasingly strict safety and hygiene regulations around the world. All while adjusting their response times across geographies, based on the commodity, climate and disruptions. To keep up with all of the above, businesses must seek specialised cold chain solutions that offer much more than cold storage and transportation.
