Urban delivery at the heart of the cold logistics challenge
The challenges of tomorrow's urban logistics
Decongesting city centres, reducing noise pollution and limiting its environmental impact are among the main challenges facing the logistics sector for last-mile urban deliveries.
The problem becomes even more acute when it comes to cold chain deliveries: noisy, energy-consuming and harmful to the environment, in the era of the introduction of Low Emission Zones (LEZs) in metropolitan areas, refrigerated transport must reinvent itself.
Yet since the Covid-19 crisis, last-mile logistics for health products and food have never been more important.
How can we meet the growing demand for the delivery of heat-sensitive products in city centres, while at the same time meeting the ecological challenges and new regulations set by the local authorities?
21st century refrigeration revolutionises city centre delivery
What if it were now possible to deliver cold-chain products to city centres at any time of the day or night, without making any noise or CO2 emissions and whilst being able to use any type of vehicle?
This has been made possible by Coldway Technologies' refrigeration technology: an autonomous, ecological, silent cold production system that can be adapted to any vehicle, from vans to two-wheelers.
The Coldway Technologies temperature-controlled solution is an economical and ecological alternative to refrigerated vehicles.
It is a refrigerated transport solution that has already been adopted by Gandon Transports for last-mile logistics of health products, and Saveurs et Vie for meal delivery.
