New partnership lobbies for European cool chain industry

Luxembourg: The Cool Chain Association and the European Cold Storage and Logistics Association have formed a partnership to strengthen their position “as voice of the European cold storage and logistics industry” in Brussels.

The partnership aims “to reduce wastage and improve the quality, efficiency and value of the temperature sensitive supply chain by facilitating and enabling vertical & horizontal collaboration, education and innovation amongst their members and stakeholders,” the associations say in a joint statement.

European Cold Storage and Logistics Association president, Hans van Leeuwen (Frigolanda Cold Logistics) and vice-president Luc Put (Colfridis) said in the statement: “Joining forces will not just strengthen our position as voice of the European cold storage and logistics industry in Brussels but also put the many logistic solutions our industry is offering for handling temperature sensitive products more into the spotlights.

“We believe that the CCA has proven to be fertile ground for innovations, developed in an environment of joint collaboration where knowledge is shared and business opportunities are created”.

Cool Chain Association secretary general Edwin Kalischnig says the partnership “fits exactly into the strategic vision of the Cool Chain Association, to take the organization to the next level by cooperating with other professional cold chain partners.

“We are impressed by the ECSLA structure with so many executives taking leadership responsibility in committees and working groups and we are convinced that the mingling with our members will contribute to the professionalism of all logistic service providers involved.”

The frst joint event will be a 2-day conference in Madrid, on 15-16 October in cooperation with ALDEFE, the Spanish cold store association. Marcos Badenes, secretary general finds the partnership an extra argument for Spanish logistics companies to participate. “This brings the best of two worlds to Madrid and will make it an unique occasion to hear about best practices and latest developments in both frozen and chilled”.
