The producer, the transformer, the logistics operator, the intermediary, the distributor, the carrier and of course the end customer: all of them benefit from the transport of perishable goods that ensures that the cold chain is maintained. Those not directly involved also benefit from this complex exchange.
Times change. Going to buy at a physical store and taking the product home under your arm is something we associate with the baby boomer generation, or even the most nostalgic members of the Generation X. Whether due to e-commerce, the pandemic or the initiatives of the mega corporations, the fact is that we are already used to having our shipments delivered to our home at no extra cost and as soon as possible.
We know that the cold chain logistics market is on the rise. The most recent reports estimate a compound annual growth rate of 15 % from here to 2028. The Covid-19 pandemic was the unexpected trigger that caused a spike in consumer demand for perishable goods, and the retail industry has known how to respond. So far, at least.
How can we reduce last-mile delivery’s carbon footprint? It's a tricky question, especially with the rise in online shopping and capillary distribution, which involve several players and circumstances, and, naturally, the interest of everyone is...
In certain sectors of activity, the temperature of the goods that are produced, distributed and sold makes the difference between success and failure. Thus, isothermal boxes and containers for these sectors are an essential lifeline.

We couldn´t agree more; especially, if food is what we make a living from. In the food sector, appropriate chilled packaging means that you always stay on the safe side.
How does the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and inflation affect increased prices in isothermal transport (and distribution generally)? It is a tricky issue that affects all of us a great deal. We can’t give a detailed answer to this question but we can give a basic explanation.
Temperature-controlled product distribution has changed forever because the way we buy and transport goods have also changed. Before, end customers who would buy perishable goods online were a minority; today they’re the multitude. In the past, we were hardly concerned about energy costs and the environmental impact, but today we know we could be coming to a dead end.
