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

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

Food for Thought | Carbon footprints in perishables: more than just food miles

Blog posts   •   Jul 22, 2019 13:15 GMT

Logistics and transportation companies get a lot of flak for the food miles of perishables but the conversation around food transportation and supply chain can be misleading. The carbon cost of transportation is slight compared to the carbon cost of production, and other important factors such as food loss and waste should be considered too, says Colin Wells in his latest Food for Thought article.
