open-package inspection after train arrival
each kind of goods has its favorite temperature and inseparable guardian.
with the development of transportation equipment technology, railway reefer container is receiving more and more attention in cross-border railway freight transportation. temperature control cargos, including fruits, vegetables and frozen products etc., have comparatively high requirements on environmental temperature control and temperature steadiness in rail transport process. through the continuous integration and improvement of both technology and operation, the above-mentioned requirement has been gradually fully satisfied.
it is no longer a fresh news to transport the temperature-control goods to and from eurasian continent through china railway express.
the only description deserved as “fresh” is just the goods been continuously kept well in the reefer container after a long journey.
there is a demand, there will be a solution.
at present, the transport objects in the cold-chain market are mainly divided into 3 categories: fresh products, processed foods and pharmaceuticals/electronics. the vegetables/fruits are classified into the fresh products which is deemed as the most difficult to retain freshness in rai transport process. the accuracy of temperature control and continuous stability are sternly required.
reefer containers which belong to the capital-intensive equipment usually contain complex technologies of mobile refrigeration and temperature control. beside these, the transportation management of reefer container is obviously featured as “multiple procedures, difficult connection, complicated operation and high risk”. the key procedures such as reefer deployment, equipment inspection at every key node on the route, coherent operation coordination, domestic & oversea reefer refueling etc. are tough and challenging, which are also be deemed as the major hard nuts to improve the timeliness of cold-chain transportation and reduce the freight loss.
in summary, the existing problems in the whole procedures of international rail cold-chain transportation have made it as one of the most challenging logistics market segment to conquer.
nowadays, with the development of rail reefer equipment technology and the continuous exploration of suppliers in the cross-border railway cold chain transportation market segment, the limitations of this market are collapsing while the market demands are gradually generating.
