Cold chain

Cold storage supply chains have grown significantly in recent years, largely through high demand for food, pharmaceuticals and medical goods in developing markets. With increasing regulations and rising costs, many retailers are turning to technology to help them overcome their supply chain challenges.

Integrity is key in an industry which is strictly regulated. Errors can lead to litigation, recalls, product withdrawals, and can seriously damage a business’ reputation. Hence, complete transparency across the cold storage supply chain and compliance with regulations are paramount.
