Cold Chain Transportation - One of the standard supply chain concept of moving products along from production to the eventual user.
Cold chain transportation is a variation of the standard supply chain concept of moving products along from production to the eventual user. It pertains to the movement of chilled products at a temperature typically between 2° and 8° C or at even lower temperatures ranging down to -65°C. Specifically, cold chain transport is a temperature-controlled supply chain used in industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage and chemicals.
Cold chain logistics entails a series of activities related to the management of the temperature-controlled supply chain. These activities are intended to protect and maintain the temperature of the cargo and avoid delays in the transportation process that could result in late shipments and spoiled product. These include storage procedures, customs clearance and the selection of the appropriate storage materials. Vaccine management is often important with the cold chain shipping of pharmaceuticals.
Main Advantages of Cold Chain Transportation:

Reduce Product Spoilage :Cold Chain transportation helps and reduces the risk of product spoilage and keeps it fresh.
Improving Packaging Efficiency : The added advantage of real-time monitoring and alerts is that you can somewhat reduce spends on cold chain risk management without running the risk of increasing spoilage.
Reduce Operational Costs : A well-run supply chain reduces transit time, enhances customer service, and saves money. Eliminate Crisis Management Costs – Cold Chain transportation reduces the cost of product spoilage and makes the delivery of the product possible without any crises.
Using Reusable Packaging or Shipping Containers : There are a lot of cutting-edge and customizable packaging options out there that can make a HUGE difference to cold chain cost-efficiency.
