As the cold chain becomes increasingly global, transportation providers in all modes are rolling out new products and services to support it. Three dedicated rail services targeting food shippers were launched at the beginning of 2014 alone. Meanwhile, the migration of fresh and frozen food from specialized ocean carriers to containerships is fundamentally altering the global reefer trade. Substantial changes are underway in the air cargo and over-the-road sectors too, resulting in more opportunities for food shippers.
