Cold Chain Logistics


Insight into the critical technological developments and solutions that will shape the future of the logistics industry.

This report describes how sectors of the industry are using information systems to manage their operations, as well as how these solutions are evolving. We hope that by clarifying the context in which many of the established solutions have been used, we can help people understand the opportunities (and disadvantages) presented by some of the solution sets now emerging.

Our primary goal is to try and identify the critical developments and solutions that will be transformational, or at least enable transformational capabilities for their users. We recognize that not every organization can adopt transformational capabilities as fast as they might wish: issues of resources, culture and ongoing contracts are always factors that must be considered. However, we believe that we can act as a reference point for companies looking for some insight and perspective into what may seem to be a bewildering mix of nomenclature and choice.

Exclusive highlights on the major providers of cold chain logistics

  • Major players like CH Robinson dominate some markets and trade lanes in developed regions, overall the global cold chain market remains highly competitive and fragmented.
  • Whilst Maersk Line dominates seaborne refrigerated cargo, air cargo is more fragmented.
  • There are numerous reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit.

Exclusive highlights on the future of cold chain

  • Big data and the Internet of Things could transform asset utilisation and the protection of sensitive cargo across the supply chains.
  • New cold chains are being created via the buying power of rising middle classes and at the same time restrictions on pharmaceutical production are tightening of government regulations on temperature-controlled supply chains.
  • 3PLs are taking compliance more seriously as manufacturers demand more stringent practices.
