Shipping perishable or frozen items requires a specialized approach in order to assure the stability and safety of products as they make their way from points of origin to destinations. The consistent temperature of any supply chain is called a cold chain. Cold chains are necessary in the shipment of fresh foods or produce, frozen goods, some pharmaceuticals, and seafood.
The necessity of a cold chain provides a particular set of challenges for a shipper. It’s not enough to find quality transportation for a product, the shipper must also find quality transportation that both modulates temperature but also evaluates and modifies temperature in real-time in order to meet the stringent guidelines for specific products.
Third-party logistic providers, like Pyramid Transport, can be a frozen or fresh food shipper’s best friend because logistics providers are uniquely positioned to find the best solutions for any particular shipments. Uninterrupted cold chains are hard-to-come by because they require a dedication to knowing all there is to know in the ever-changing environment of cold chain logistics.
