The transportation of chilled and frozen foods has become a necessity in the modern world, with cold chain following rapid economic and political change. Chilled and frozen foods require the most efficient cold chain, not only in terms of technology and know-how, but also in terms of timely delivery, in order to respond rapidly to market needs. The process of frozen foods transport continued to improve because fruits and vegetables, and dairy products are to be transported to place of consumption from place of production. Frozen food market demand is increasing across the globe. The movement of manufacturers and retailers to emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, as well as the changing tastes of consumers is having a positive effect on the cold chain industry.

Growth in organized retail and food processing sector drives the cold chain market across the globe. Weather conditions are one of the major concerns when it comes to frozen food logistics. Loading and unloading during extreme warm or cold conditions may also pose huge negative impact on the freshness of frozen foods. Political affairs amongst neighboring countries can also delay the delivery of perishables across the borders, which may in turn loose the freshness of food products. In such cases, transport routes should be carefully decided prior to exports.
