The pandemic opened the doors for e-commerce that turned into a full-fledged business ever since. The change in people’s needs and purchasing behaviour gave rise to increased demand for cold chain. According to JLL, India’s cold chain is expected to grow by 20% CAGR by 2025 due to massive transformation in the infrastructure. A country like India, where people didn’t trust online shopping once upon a time, has now increased the market value of online grocery shopping to 100.7 billion Indian rupees in 2019. Delivering fresh and sustainable products was a challenge for the cold chain companies. But the innovation and installation of new technologies solved the challenge and significantly changed the cold chain process.
Technologies that changed the market
TESSOL’s PLUGnCHILL has successfully delivered ice-creams, bakery products, meat and seafood products. In addition, it also provides advanced frozen food packaging that ensures the sustainability of the food.It is a vehicle independent, fuel-free technology and so even if the truck breaks down while delivering, the food is safe. This technology keeps the temperature consistent even after several deliveries. It is 50% faster in pulling down the temperature, which means in 20-30 minutes, it can pull down up to -25℃ to +18℃. This ensures the sustainability and quality of the product to the end consumer.
SWAP freezers are designed to freeze the cartridges and carriers in a short period of time. It is best for small confined spaces. In case the warehouse or vehicle is opened several times and loses its cool, then SWAP technology will retain the required temperature in a short time. The cartridges and carriers are insulated and sanitized, which maximize hygiene and ensure safe delivery. The cartridges successfully maintain the specific temperature and have air flow paths that allow uniform performance across the bags. This keeps the food frozen, chilled and fresh.
Any technology or business will not succeed without a rock-solid infrastructure, and TAMsys is a well-built infrastructure in cold chain logistics. It updates the condition of the products, weather, vehicle temperature, and food temperature to the operator and helps them identify the potential damage,preventing any wastage of food. In addition, the consumer can track their product on the phone, and enable the consumer to know from where their product is dispatched and by what time it can be delivered. So they can change the delivery location if they wish to do so. Further, it increases transparency and develops trust between consumers and the company. This asset monitoring system ensures safety from farm to fork.
The implementation of technology has dramatically changed cold chain management. It is enabling the companies to transport food across states and regions and expand their businesses. TESSOL is one such company whose advanced technologies are making the cold chain process efficient and sustainable. It is setting the benchmark in the market.
