CFI takes our layered approach to our cool chain technology very seriously. By combining our unparalleled perishable logistics experience and a vast worldwide network of strategic partnerships, our state-of-the-art Cool Skies layers approach, and cutting edge coolant solutions, our dedication to protecting the temperature integrity of your perishable cargo is unmatched in the world.
The challenges that cool chain cargo presents are tarmac heat, water loss, food safety and the environmental impact of the overpacking used to protect the cargo The battle against heat is the spearhead of the struggle with chilled cargo, especially in warm temperatures where cargo is waiting to be leaded, sitting in the sun, soaking up infrared light. Cool Skied users overpacking that acts as a refractor of infrared light, instead of reflector – meaning it scatters the light back out without absorbing the heat as it allows cool airflow around the material, adding insulation. Because less heat is radiating into the cargo, less water is lost and the shipment retains more moisture than traditional metal bubble foil wraps. Combining Cool Dkies overpacking with gel packs and dry ice prolongs the life of the coolant to keep the shipment safer than traditional materials.
