Blog posts   •   Aug 02, 2019 08:45 GMT

In the early years of the cold chain, its processes were mostly managed by manufacturers, but specialty transport companies soon took over. By the 1950s, third-party logistics providers had taken on an increasingly important role in the cold chain “niche”. Perishables supply chains will evolve further and cold chain management will remain at the core of freight forwarding.
