Cool News and Views – February 2022

February 2022

Welcome to February’s edition of Cool News and Views. 

Our team is busy preparing for CoolTech – a Cool Logistics event – our first ever forum focussed entirely on technological innovation across the cold chain taking place 21-22 June at the Hilton Hotel, Rotterdam . We welcome papers and contributions, so contact us if you’d like to participate by getting in touch with our Managing Director rachael@coollogisticsconference.com. 

The reefer container continues to dominate the news headlines, which will be of no surprise to our Cool Logistics community. Firstly, our colleagues at Drewry Shipping Consultancy report that growth in the perishables sector in 2021 has driven the huge demand for reefers and contributed to an overall increase of 14% in the global fleet.  And most recently, we have shared news of perishables exporters using reefer vessels to ship their product as the global container shortage continues. 

If you would like to contribute to a future edition of our Cool News and Views newsletter, we would like to hear from you! Have you written an article, or do you have company news to share? Get in touch with us by contacting helen@coollogisticsconference.com with your idea.

On a final note, don’t forget to save the dates for our 14th Cool Logistics Global, taking place from 20-22 September at the World Trade Centre in Barcelona with our host the Port of Barcelona.  We’ll be releasing our early agenda soon!
