Ahead of Cool Logistics Global 2021, taking place online 19 – 21 October, news from our Bronze sponsor the Port of Antwerp.

Life sciences and Healthcare products require specific handling during distribution, which is laid down in the GDP (Good Distribution Practice) guidelines. Port of Antwerp has translated this for a maritime setting, making it the first port in the world to operate under the standard of the European GDP rules throughout the logistics chain.

A Word from Our Port Partner 2021 – Port of Rotterdam

The world’s population is growing and the demand for food and the way we consume it is more diverse than ever.

Image of the Port of Rotterdam Logo

We want our food fresh and we want it now. Over the next few years, import and export of agrofood products are expected to grow annually by 3% and 5% respectively and that growth will obviously have a direct and indirect impact on the supply chain.

As Port of Rotterdam Authority we have developed a series of interviews in which we look at key trends in today’s agrofood sector and the supply chain with a number of experts – both in premium articles and in videos.

Would you like to know more about the latest trends and developments in food and logistics?

View our first publication video above – food trendwatcher and journalist Hans Steenbergen predicts which food trends will define our future.
