Refrigerated transport has become a critically important industry with the rise in demand for frozen food products in households as well as for food service operators. Moreover, the strict government regulations governing frozen food production, processing, transportation, and storage quality has been standardizing the industry today. As challenging as the deliverability of refrigerated transport services are, optimized rates, strict temperature control to preserve freshness and quality, impeccable Inventory management, and quick turnaround time. Furthermore, with the growing expansion of the market towards rural/urban areas, logistics companies should have market penetration across these regions and tie-ups with hyperlocal networks.
