Food distributors and fulfilment centres are incredibly important in the food supply chain. They are responsible for making sure that perishable, fresh, and frozen products remain at the proper temperature throughout the entire distribution process. This is crucial to maintaining the quality and safety of these products from the moment they are produced until they are consumed.
To achieve this, these centres use thermal packaging solutions and temperature monitoring systems to create a perfect temperature-controlled environment for each type of product and/or delivery. They need to ensure that everything from fresh fruits and veggies to other chilled and/or frozen products like meat or fish stay fresh and are transported and delivered in the required cold chain.
The use of passive thermal shippers contributes to waste reduction, product shelf life extension, and spoilage prevention.
Distribution and fulfilment centres are essential for order fulfilment, logistics, and inventory control. They can track product movement, guarantee on-time delivery, and reduce supply chain disruptions by utilizing effective and precise tracking systems.
All in all, distribution and fulfilment centres make sure that consumers have access to high-quality, secure, and sustainable food products. The food supply chain would be much less effective and wasteful without them.
