The Future Of The Refrigerated Transport Industry
The refrigerated transport industry looks to have a bright future with increased demand for its services, and innovations in technologies and systems.
During the pandemic, with the need to transport vaccines and the increased demand for online shopping and delivery, the refrigerated transport industry became more important than ever.
Here are 5 trends set to continue for the future of the refrigerated transport industry.
1. Increasing Supply Chain Visibility
New solutions for labelling and tracking goods along the journey from farm to fork are increasing visibility into temperature changes, pick up and drop off points and more.
This data helps to ensure perishable goods arrive at their destination in the best possible quality.
2. Entering New Markets
Refrigerated transport providers now have the opportunity to enter new markets like delivering organic food and transporting vaccines. Logistics companies can strategically enter these markets to broaden their business.
3. New Packaging Solutions
New packaging solutions are helping sensitive goods to travel safely along the cold chain and arrive in a good condition. This helps to optimise and improve performance.
4. More Multi-Segmented Trucks
In the past, refrigerated trucks had to keep their entire load at the same temperature.
New multi-segmented trucks can now hold a variety of goods at different temperatures. This is especially important for transporting sensitive pharmaceutical products that are subject to strict regulations.
5. Increasing Solar-Powered Units
Sustainable and eco-friendly options for refrigerated transport companies are increasing. Diesel trucks are being phased out in favour of electric trucks, and solar-powered refrigeration.
Logistics companies are becoming aware of their impact on the environment and looking for new ways to reduce emissions.
