Marzan Launches cold chain transportation marketplace - Catena Inc.

Marzan Launches cold chain transportation marketplace - Catena Inc. | Global Logistics Trends and News | Scoop.it
According to 2011 data from EPCglobal, perishable suppliers ship more
than five billion pallets of chilled meats, seafood, cheese, produce and
temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and bio-medical products valued at
$2.6 trillion every year. This cold chain transportation marketplace is
fragmented, with many different information systems and solutions for
tracking and monitoring perishable goods differing tremendously from one
another. As a result, transportation providers have great difficulty
fulfilling delivery requirements, and suppliers aren't able to track
their shipments with the level of detail they need to ensure their
shipments arrive intact and in compliance with handling standards.
Annually, $35 billion worth of cold chain goods are discarded due to
temperature loss and other compliance intrusions during the supply chain
journey.
