Tell us what your business model is and we will tell you what your temperature-controlled packaging and transport needs are. The complexity of today’s supply chain is determined by a critical factor: temperature. Especially, for perishable products it is no doubt a crucial issue.
Providing an unbroken cold chain is a major concern mainly in the food and pharmaceutical sectors; but each of these sectors face specific challenges depending on their position in the supply chain. What is your case?
Logistics operators cover a wide range of functions, from process design to operational management, storage, packaging, distribution, etc. Problems can arise anywhere, especially when it comes to goods that require temperature-controlled storage and transport.
In your case, it is just as important to have suitable insulated packaging as it is to have a suitable fleet of vehicles. A good option would be reusable shippers in different sizes combined with passive cooling equipment adapted to your vehicles. But it is probably in your best interest to get some customised solutions.
All the efforts to optimise the stock management, ERP software and refrigerated facilities are of little use when it comes to temperature breach while delivering products within a strict temperature range (which, in some cases, such as in the pharmaceutical industry, can cause irreversible damage).
Every distribution centre has its peculiarities, and it is essential that we are able to respond to any scenario, whether it is a delivery in regular medium-distance route or an urban centre with traffic restrictions. Luckily, you can ensure temperature-controlled transport without the need to replace your vehicle fleet: take a look at our TransformingVehicles solutions.
Physical retail/e-commerce shop
Regardless of whether we operate from a physical shop or sell online, mobility is non-negotiable nowadays. We must be prepared to deliver our perishable products in perfect condition to our customers, whatever they are: refrigerated or frozen perishable food, medicines, vaccines, agri-food products, ready meals…
When we talk about home delivery or last mile services, we usually consider small payload and single-use isothermal transport packaging. The main factors here are an excellent value for money and a minimal environmental impact.
Making the supply chain simpler
Nobody said that temperature-controlled transport was a piece of cake… But our know-how and the 25 years of experience have brought us closer to make it way easier for our customers. Just send us an inquiry and we will do our best to prove it to you!
