Key Cold Chain Logistics Problems
Global uniform standards
Companies across the world set their own norms as there are no standard laws that can outline the guideline for the proper cold chain management. This makes it challenging for companies in the food industry to manage the quality of perishable foods. The lack of adequate resources for refrigeration in developing nations further adds to the woes of companies having global supply chains.
Transportation and distribution of goods
Delivering food items in the local stores is one of the cold chain logistics challenges that companies face. They have temperature-controlled fixed warehouses that are costly and difficult to maintain. If the shipment gets stranded during transportation, companies suffer heavy losses as the shelf life of products reduces significantly.

Uninterrupted temperature is the basic requirement for perishable food products. Exposure of perishable food products to ambient temperatures that are higher than the required temperature during distribution or transportation affects the quality of products.
