The cold chain becomes more complicated when
temperatures rise, and it turns critical. Frozen transport becomes increasingly
important during the summer months when its volume grows in importance for freight
forwarders of perishable goods.
Among its critical points we find; short
delivery timings and high climatic conditions in peripheral countries, this
increasingly force carriers to take greater control and care of his cooling
equipment. So, high temperatures beside the increase in engine hours, due to
working below -20ºC, are making a dent throughout the summer.
What do we consider key in Antonio Marco?
Drivers and the traffic manager gain importance
because of the delicacy of the load and the handling of the cooling machine,
plus the continuous information flow of the state of the goods required by the
We must understand that breakdowns can exist and
without an excellent service with quick reactions on the road, they can
complicate the preservation and delivery of the goods at the destination.
Therefore, we consider it very essential to identify all the risks that can be
caused during transportation. Among them, we deal with breakdowns due to
mechanical issues in the cooling machine which can affect the load; from a
lousy pre-cooling of the box to an incorrect setpoint of the device, or even thermography
errors that do not reflect the accurate traceability of the goods. At Antonio
Marco, we are clear that these three are maximums for the proper handling of
possible breakpoints in the cold chain.
