Sustainability Matters in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, California, USA: Shippers will share insight into challenges facing the temperature-controlled supply chain at the Cool Chain Association’s Americas Conference, “Sustainability Matters”, next month.
  
The Produce Marketing Association and California-based berry shipper Driscoll’s, will join speakers from Air France KLM, Cargolux, and Able Freight, among others, for a two-day event focused on a people, profit, planet business model for a sustainable cool chain future.
  
Thought leaders and innovators from across the supply chain will share insight on new developments, and delegates will take part in a tour of facilities at Los Angeles International Airport, as well as a live demonstration of the Kold Kart, a temperature controlled air cargo dolly, the association says.
  
“The business landscape is rapidly changing, with technology bringing new opportunities, and evolving consumer and customer demands,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, Cool Chain Association Chairman, and Cargolux global product manager pharma and perishable.
  
“At the same time, there is a pressing need for us to address sustainability issues, from better caring for our environment, to ensuring a responsible and healthy future for our industry, and for the people who rely on it from first, to final mile.
  
“Our cool chain industry must ensure product integrity, learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, digitalise and share data to embrace the people, profit, planet framework and drive sustainable development for both pharma and perishables.”
  
The conference will cover the shippers’ perspective, innovation and new ideas, data sharing and transparency, standards and certification, challenging products, and packaging.
