About This Report
There has been a sea-change in transport logistics in recent years, fueled by the transition to e‑commerce orders.
Final mile and product-specific refrigerated vehicles are becoming more common in the cold supply chain. For example, refrigerated van bodies are now fabricated with multiple temperature compartments, low ground-to-floor height to enable loading and unloading by hand, and multiple doors on each side.
There is also an increasing need for smaller delivery vehicles, and conversion of commercial vans for refrigerated transportation is an infant industry slated for fast growth.
On the long-haul side, the enforcement of the mandatory electronic logging devices (ELDs), which began in December 2017, is transforming perishables transportation. This regulation is benefitting intermodal transport of perishables, which is now able to offer better transit times as compared to on-road trucks and trailers.
This unique report from SpecialtyResearch.net brings together all modes of temperature-controlled cargo transport, making it an invaluable resource for all stake holders in the cold supply chain for refrigerated transportation modes.
