Cold Logistics: understand the service provided by SuperFrio

Post Published on 03/03/22 | 4 pm


SuperFrio is a company that works with cold logistics. Do you know what that really means?

Less than three decades ago, distributors of cold products had freezer chambers that, for the most part, did not drop below -13°C and chilled ones stopped at +2°C, which, in theory, allowed the preservation of products in storage, but did not guarantee its conservation during transport between production, storage, distribution and point of sale. In these, the situation was worrying, as the conservation equipment was minimal and almost all of them were chambers for the maintenance of refrigerated goods of dubious quality. The situation was critical, but the non-requirement of an expiry date prevented consumers from realizing the risk they were running.

 From the 1990s, this reality was modified and what we see today are efficient installations, with enormous gains in the generation of cold at reduced costs. We can also mention the new techniques of verticalization of storage, the availability of efficient equipment for horizontal and vertical movement of goods.

Currently, cold logistics is used in a multiple variety of industrial sectors, involving the movement of goods in temperature-controlled environments.

What is Cold Logistics and which sectors use this service?

Cold logistics is everything that involves the movement of products, from manufacturing, loading, transport, cold storage and delivery to the final customer.

Providing reliable cold logistics service requires a wide range of equipment, in-depth knowledge of the legislation governing this type of transport, detailed knowledge of restrictions and a high degree of innovation to always remain the best service in the industry.

   Numerous sectors enjoy the benefits that hiring a cold logistics company brings. Although many people think that only the food sector uses this service, several other areas make use of cold logistics, such as:
