Intermodal Cool Chain Management A Practical Guide to the Movement of Temperature-Controlled Cargo

Langue : Anglais

Auteur :

Couverture de l’ouvrage Intermodal Cool Chain Management
Refrigerated containers (reefers) are enclosed units used for transporting temperature-sensitive cargo. There is substantial investment in reefers. For example, Maersk Line boasts the largest containerized reefer fleet with 20 per cent of the global market. Reefer containers enable the sale of all kinds of fresh produce all year round. Providing insights into this fascinating industry with real-life examples and practical ideas, Intermodal Cool Chain Management is for carriers and shippers who are looking for additional capacity for their temperature-controlled cargo, more cost-effective transportation options and ways of reducing their impact on the environment. Intermodal Cool Chain Management looks at how products from meat, fruit, vegetables and dairy products, to chemicals and pharmaceuticals can be transported successfully across the world. It is a highly practical text with many key takeaways and case studies for the practitioner and student. The book is truly global and covers people management, asset management, collaboration and new technologies which enable temperature monitoring during intermodal cool chain transportation and real-time tracking across modes.
