Cold Chain Logistics 2017

Major players like CH Robinson dominate some markets and trade lanes in developed regions, overall the global cold chain market remains highly competitive and fragmented.

Whilst Maersk Line dominates seaborne refrigerated cargo, air cargo is more fragmented.

There are numerous reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit.

Big data and the Internet of Things could transform asset utilisation and the protection of sensitive cargo across the supply chains.

New cold chains are being created via the buying power of rising middle classes and at the same time restrictions on pharmaceutical production are tightening of government regulations on temperature-controlled supply chains.

3PLs are taking compliance more seriously as manufacturers demand more stringent practices
