As a Cold Chain Equipment Manufacturer, share with you. To understand why a
large amount of logistics expenditure will continue to maintain the insulation
state and temperature control state of certain commodities, let us look at the
main products using this tool.
Medicines, fresh produce, beverages, frozen foods and chemicals often need to be kept at a certain temperature. By ensuring that the air entering and leaving the container is filtered, it is also necessary to protect them from contamination. This is where insulation plays an important role. It completely seals the transport container from the outside and helps to keep the transported goods in a fixed state.
The most important thing to understand to understand the temperature control of insulated transport containers is the cold chain. The term refers to a supply chain approach that allows certain commodities to remain permanently cold throughout the entire process from supplier to customer.
By keeping it cold, there will be no sudden temperature changes that can cause various problems. For example, frequent thawing and cooling cycles of food and other agricultural products may cause deterioration.
For drugs, if the pill or drug is not kept below a certain temperature, its composition and reaction may change.
The main idea behind the cold chain is that low temperature can lock in the freshness of the product, prevent the growth of bacteria, maintain the required medicine and pharmaceutical ingredients, help transport fresh food, and generally improve the shelf life of the food.
In order to fully understand why insulation is needed, let's take an example of an apple box from the United States to India.
Although air transportation is very useful in this situation, it may be difficult for suppliers to transport large quantities of apples. Therefore, it is easier to use ships and container ships for transportation.
The journey takes 15 to 20 days and requires your package to span 15,000 kilometers. Generally, if most of the apples were to make this journey in an ordinary intermodal container, they would deteriorate in the first week.
However, the transportation company will make every effort to keep the apples fresh and edible. Therefore, they rented insulated and temperature-controlled containers that have enough space to carry all the goods.
This kind of refrigerated container, usually called a refrigerated box, keeps the apple at a fixed temperature by completely insulating the container and ensuring that there is no external contamination.
In the whole process, without an insulated container that maintains a constant temperature, it is almost impossible to ship apples to all parts of the world. This is why these containers constitute an important part of the global supply chain and shipping industry.
