If you find it difficult to juggle multiple providers for your cold chain logistics, there’s a better, even seamless, way of doing business. Cold chain logistics can be difficult to manage and finding reliable providers can be frustrating. There are many moving parts of the cold chain that can be hard to follow and track. Often you may find yourself with many providers and contacts to sort through. What if you could reduce all your cold chain logistics companies down to one? What if you could replace the rest by finding one with a range of modes for your cold chain freight, including warehousing, transportation management, and more? Sound too good to be true? Keep reading.
When you ship and manage temperature-controlled freight, you often find yourself working with more than one logistics provider. This means there can be more handling, which can become a cause for safety concerns.
Manual processes in the transportation of cold chain freight can cause decreased visibility along your freight’s journey. The majority exists within the food industry due to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Because of this, shippers need to practice diligence when selecting and vetting the carriers they choose move their freight. They must make sure to communicate responsibilities such as required temperature requirements, having access to temperature readings, and making sure equipment is inspected before moving.
When you work with more than one carrier the process becomes more complicated. Each one adds complexity to your cold chain and every handling adds risk. Take time to map out your supply chain end-to-end, identify gaps, simplify your processes, and reduce the number of providers that move your freight. This can reduce your cold chain safety risks.
