Cold chain has been an integral component of logistics since the late 18th century when ice was used for preserving temperature-sensitive and perishable products such as dairy products, fish, and meat during transportation from one place to another. With rapid technological advancements in the following decades, cold chain logistics witnessed a drastic evolution. At present, cold chain logistics includes exclusively built cold storage facilities, cooling equipment, cold processing, cold transport, and cold distribution.
This rapid transformation in cold chain logistics made the transportation of perishables and temperature-sensitive products over large distances possible. This, in turn, fueled large-scale commercial activities involving these products, which subsequently caused the expansion of the global cold chain market.
