Cold Chain solutions by Crystal logistic

Posted by Rahul on February 13th, 2018

This blog discusses cold chain solutions & the current state in India. Supply-chain management has been specified as the design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of making a Net profit, constructing a competitor infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally.

Perishable Cargo

Careful planning for perishable air cargo helps shippers transport the cargo to the demand destination. In perishable logistics, time is of the essence to guarantee produce, flowers, fish, and other products make their destinations while they still proffer maximal appeal and shelf life.This makes Cold Chain Solutions absolutely necessary for cold chain transportation. Thanks to increased air cargo volumes for commodities such as flowers, perishables supply chain executives describe a dense but firm rise in air cargo use. But, steamship lines ' efforts to cut down fuel consumption by travelling more slowly has coerced some perishables commodities back to air cargo. On return to the warehouse, the truck is plugged in, so as to refreeze the eutectic plates and the cycle continues.

Rigid Polyurethane Foam is used as insulation for the body.GRP Sheets adhered to insulation. Products are arranged to harmonize to delivery priority on roll containers and loaded on to the truck through rearward doors

Truck is charged for one hour after loading of product and get down delivery run

While on delivery, the rearward doors stay unopened and the products are unloaded through side service doors. This culture of innovation has helped foster advancements in refrigerated transport technology leading to the development of Rican’s up-to-the-minute product, the Chill Kart. Eutectic plates supply necessary cooling hence invalidating the use of fan cool type evaporator unit. The temperature kept for 10-12 hrs.

Key challenges Lack of quality cold warehousing infrastructure: There is a terrible shortage of cold chain warehouse capacity as only 25 % of the capacity is uncommitted for fruits, vegetables, processed foods and pharmaceuticals, whereas 75 % of the capacity is given to potatoes. Lack of standards and protocols in construction and operation of facilities: technical standards followed in India are mostly inapplicable for Indian conditions, which results in low performance of received refrigerated systems. Low awareness of labour in managing temperature-sensitive products: In India, the supply chain of most products is retentive and broken up. There are respective means in which cold chain products can be transported: refrigerated trucks and railcars; Refrigerated cargo ships; and Air cargo.
