As the world shifts towards greener solutions, the cold chain industry is working to improve its sustainability while maintaining safety standards. Here are sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions that will protect temperature sensitive goods throughout the entire cold chain.
Sustainable and biodegradable packaging is becoming increasingly popular in the cold chain. In fact, 11% of cold chain professionals cite sustainable packaging systems as one of their top three investment priorities. This type of packaging is designed to optimize energy and materials, which will reduce costs. A number of factors affect the sustainability of packaging, including container weight, packaging materials, durability, and the ease and cost of recycling. Sustainable packaging not only positively impacts the environment, but it also benefits individuals and communities.

New Cold Chain Automation
Building a green cold chain is more than just implementing sustainable packaging. Research has shown that automating supply chain transactions will reduce paper usage and food spoilage, which can improve a company’s carbon footprint and bottom line. Cargo Data’s Lightning Real-Time temperature monitoring instrument cuts out the need for endless paperwork and reduces the chance of food spoilage by regularly reporting temperature data to The Cloud while the shipment is in-transit.
Cargo Data has always promoted recycling. Not only is it free and easy, but it can be profitable as well. Cargo Data offers a rebate program for Receivers who return 10 or more used recorders per shipment. Simply collect your used Cargo Data recorders and return them to us using postage pre-paid labels.
