Investing In The Future: Advancements In Climate Control
Climate control is critical to quality control in the refrigerated and frozen food sector. However, achieving it is easier said than done. A cold chain can break down at many different points along the route from processor to consumer. Inconsistent temperature during shipment, poor climate control inside the warehouse, or product sitting too long on an open dock or in an open trailer all are common scenarios for temperature-related product damage. Considering the value of a standard OTR food shipment is between $50,000 and $100,000 (with reefer loads going up to $1 million), any weak link in a cold chain’s integrity can become an immensely expensive mistake.
Fortunately, recent advancements have spurred development of a wide range of new equipment to address this issue. These products help ensure proper temperatures from the freezer or cooler through to the loading dock and even onto the semi-trailer or reefer. This article highlights a few of the most significant new offerings.
