The World Of Refrigerated Transport Post Pandemic
The pandemic has had a huge impact on the refrigerated transport industry so far and is going to leave a lasting impression in the future.
Despite the challenges of border closures and restrictions, the refrigerated transport industry saw huge growth during 2020-21. Although we don’t know how the pandemic will pan out in the coming months, it looks like the refrigerated transport industry has a bright future.
So, what will the world of refrigerated transport look like post pandemic?
The growth that the refrigerated transport industry saw during the pandemic is expected to continue. Globally, the cold chain market is expected to grow by 14.8 percent from 2021 to 2028. This is because of increased demand from consumers for quality fresh and frozen products.
More Opportunities in Medical Delivery
During the pandemic, the cold chain industry found new opportunities in delivering pharmaceutical products like vaccines.
Delivering vaccines requires highly-specialised equipment and processes to ensure they remain at the correct temperature. As more vaccines are developed and the demand for booster shots increases, the need for secure transport will continue.
In the last two years, new technologies have emerged in the cold chain in response to the disruptions caused by the pandemic. This includes technology for increasing visibility, monitoring and compliance across the cold chain. There’s also increased tracing of foods and their environmental conditions along their journey to ensure food safety.
These are just a few of the trends you can expect to see in the world of refrigerated transport in the near future.
