The future of perishables

MundoMaritimo's excellent 3-day event overview of Cool Logistics Global

For 13 years, the Cool Logistics Global conference has shed light on all aspects of the refrigerated containerized supply chain – the ‘cold chain’.  From fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, meats, seafood and medicines – there are millions of perishable items that need to remain cool in transit. And our annual conference provides a unique forum for the perishables trade, cold chain and reefer shipping community to come together. 

The 13th edition of the world’s leading forum for the cold chain and reefer shipping community took place online this year from 19 – 21 October.  Our media colleagues at MundoMaritimo pick up our story and report on three packed days of insight, discussion and debate.
