The Hot Demand for the Cold Chain
Wednesday, March 17 – 3:30-4:30 pm Central
AWESOME is partnering with Deloitte to provide sessions among supply chain leaders representing companies in a cross-section of industries, facilitating discussion on today’s most pressing supply chain challenges.
Expanding on the discussion from the February Cross-Industry Collaboration (The Future of Fresh), the March 17th event, in collaboration with Deloitte, focused on another fast and high-impact supply chain: the cold chain. As consumers move toward fresh food – and accept frozen food as being close to fresh – and as the pharmaceutical market continues to grow (including the high interest in COVID-19 vaccines), the demand for cold chain services, both warehousing and transportation, is increasing dramatically. In this session, Deloitte presented information on key considerations such as temperature, shipment size and transit time, as well as strategies for dealing with risk and compliance while working toward a future-proof cold chain logistics model. Participants were encouraged to share thoughts and comments from their own experience with food, cold chain, or any other high-speed supply chains.
Moderator: Susan Yang – Senior Manager, Deloitte
