Quintessential | How the cold chain and freight forwarders have evolved together

Blog posts   •   Aug 02, 2019 08:45 GMT

In the early years of the cold chain, its processes were mostly managed by manufacturers, but specialty transport companies soon took over.

Perishables supply chains will evolve further and cold chain management will remain at the core of freight forwarding.

What is the best address in Weiterstadt? Hang on; you don’t know where Weiterstadt is? Well, as the name implies, Weiterstadt is a city (= Stadt) in Germany, right next to Darmstadt and a few kilometers south of Frankfurt Airport. Many would argue that Schloss Braunshardt is the best address in this city of 25,000 souls. The 18th century castle is undoubtedly a fine address, but...
