A Guide to Cold Chain Logistics

Monday, October 18th, 2021

While transportation may seem like the most important step in the supply chain of your temperature-controlled goods, each step is equally important. That is because your product’s integrity depends on constant temperature maintenance, the proper packaging, and adept transportation equipment and plans — all done by a company with enough refrigerated logistics experience to get it right without compromising the quality or integrity of your product or business. 

When you need temperature-dependent services for your food, beverage, medical supplies, biological specimens, and pharmaceutical products, you need effective cold chain logistics. Relying on a trustworthy 3PL company like CWI Logistics that provides a full complement of supply chain services allows you to transport your temperature-controlled goods in a way that maintains their integrity all the way through their process until they get to their destination and into the end user’s hands. 

Understanding Cold Chain Logistics 

If your company offers perishable goods, cold chain logistics is essential for your business to deliver safe, quality products to your customers. And one of the most significant benefits of refrigerated logistics is that it not only benefits the end user but can also save your company money. The refrigerated 3PL company collects and applies relevant data to provide you with streamlined logistics and transportation services.

Keeping goods at the appropriate temperatures is a complex process that gets more challenging all the time. Cold chain management issues arise, such as product quality problems, inadequate packaging, lack of proper documentation, and shipping delays. In addition to these concerns, companies must deliver globally, keep costs down, increase strategy, and adequately handle capacity and resource limitations.
