Fresh Home Delivery Challenge

The food industry has been slow to expand into e-commerce, due to issues such as freshness, product damage, low margins when compared to other consumer products and logistical matters. The current challenge is not only to reduce delivery costs, but also to differentiate based upon quality and reliability of service.

Upholding the integrity of the cold chain by preventing temperature fluctuations, even in the last mile, ensures fresh products arrive fit for human consumption. How fast can the image of a company be damaged if the customer is unhappy about the condition in which food arrives at their homes? What would happen, for example, if ice cream arrived melted?

Every client expects a fast, reliable product delivery and the race to meet expectations is on. In cities, bikes are already a very cost-effective last mile solution, with Uber and ride services continuing to make their presence felt. Trucks and drones play their part too. Which means companies must adapt their packaging and solutions to meet a variety of cold chain logistics requirements.

It has provided temperature-controlled solutions for the food, life sciences and logistics industries for more than two decades.
