Cool Chain Services that support perishable food distribution globally are estimated to be valued at nearly $250 billion. And if the world had a properly functioning cool chain, food losses due to perishables shipping can be brought down to just 2%.
Given the critical need for a better dialogue between the logistics sector and perishable producers and shippers, the Cool Chain Association and The STAT Trade Times have organized the Global CCA Perishable Conference, this time on the African continent.
The conference aimed to address the latest trends in temperature-controlled logistics, to find innovative solutions to common challenges and tackle issues related to trade barriers, infrastructure and distribution involved in perishables transportation.
Excellent presentations, lively discussions and productive round-table discussions with almost 90 delegates resulted in a very successfull event.
