    1. 1. LOGISTICS IN FRESH FOOD DISTRIBUTION By :- Revathy (35), Kaveri(5), Ravi(44), Avadhesh(52), Aditya (32)
    2. 2. Logistics is the management of the flow of goods from origin to destination to meet customer requirements Right Time, Right Place @ Minimum Cost What is Logistics ? Logistics Transportatio n Inventory Warehousin g Information Management Packaging Security
    3. 3. What is Cold Chain Logistics? LOGISTICS TEMPERATURE CONTROL (REFRIGERATION) COLD CHAIN LOGISTICS •A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. •An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. •It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of products such as fresh agricultural produce,[1] seafood, frozen food, photographic film, chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs
    4. 4. IMPORTANT FACTORS WHILE HANDLING COLD CHAIN LOGISTICS • The use of refrigerator trucks, refrigerator cars, reefer ships, reefer containers, and refrigerated warehouses is common. • Shipment in insulated shipping containers or other specialised packaging. • Temperature data loggers and RFID tags help monitor the temperature history of the truck, warehouse, etc. and the temperature history of the product being shipped. They also can help determine the remaining shelf life. • Documentation is critical.Customs delays occur due to inaccurate or incomplete customs paperwork, so basic guidelines for creating a commercial invoice should be followed to ensure the proper verbiage, number of copies, and other details.
    5. 5. CHALLENGES FACED BY THE FOOD INDUSTRY • The food industry faces not only the traditional challenges of handling perishables and dated products, but also additional challenges have been recently introduced that were unimaginable a few years ago: • Increased globalization; • Competitive pricing from mass-retailers-turned- grocers; • Tighter standards for compliance and security; • Bioterrorism regulations requiring two-year histories on all food shipments.
    6. 6. Global Cold Chain Facts: Food Sector Fruits & Vegetables Meat Fish & Seafood Dairy Products Beverages In European and American developed countries, the rate of refrigerated transport is up to 80-90%, pre-cooling preservation is up to 80-100%, and the loss rate is below 5%. 25% of the total food production is processed foods. A booming industry

    9. 9. MEAT DISTRIBUTION LOGISTICS • Meat transportation is particularly dependent on the cold chain since once slaughtered unfrozen meat has a limited storage life. • meat animals are collected alive and transported to major slaughterhouses / stockyard complexes • Then, the carcasses are frozen and transported mainly by refrigerated railcars to consumption markets. • There, they will be butchered, packed and sold, commonly in large super markets having a temperature controlled room.
    11. 11. • ColdStar offers end-to-end refrigerated storage and transportation solutions for temperature-sensitive consumables.

    17. 17. Sample Cold Room Modular Cold Rooms are standard preservation chambers built at site to desired dimensions and cooling specifications.
    18. 18. GEOGRAPHICAL PERSPECTIVE of fresh food logistics • Global. Specialization of agricultural functions permitting the transport of temperature sensitive food products to distant markets. • Regional. Can support the specialization of production and economies of scale in distribution. This could involve large cold storage facilities servicing regional grocery markets • Local. Timely distribution to the final consumer of perishables, namely grocery stores and restaurants.

    20. 20. conclusion • Food products begin to deteriorate the moment they are harvested or slaughtered, so it is essential for cold chain logistics to insure that the cargo is kept in optimum storage conditions so that shelf life, and therefore commercial potential, is maximized. CONCLUSION
