London, October 8th 2020 – Leadership, Skills & Training for Global Cold Chain & Reefer Logistics, Remote Monitoring & Control for the Data-Driven Cold Container Chain, and Digital Transformation, Disruption & Innovation in the Global Cold Supply Chain are just three of the topics that will be debated by 30+ thought leaders across three days of sessions at the 12th Cool Logistics Global conference taking place from 13th to 15th October, in a virtual environment.
Participants spanning 30 countries worldwide have registered for the 12th Cool Logistics Global which is sponsored by the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s leading cool port hub connecting sea and landside perishable logistics. The three-day event includes a series of sessions and panel discussions and numerous networking events to ensure the Cool community can continue to exchange the industry’s main challenges and concerns.
“Even though we can’t meet in person,” said Rachael White, Managing Director of Cool Logistics, “we have created an environment where the industry can meet virtually to explore key issues, discuss trends and share experiences in a productive and informative way. The conference provides a great way to stay ahead of the curve.”
Speakers from companies spanning all sectors of the industry include Maersk Line, Drewry Shipping, Kuehne+Nagel, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), Datamar, JC Food Republic, TWILL, AgriLedger, ORBCOMM, OceanX and SeaCube Containers, and are also joined by industry associations UN/CEFACT Transport & Logistics and the Global Cold Chain Alliance.

Continued Rachael White:
“We are looking forward to hosting our sponsors, attendees and speakers in a virtual environment for insightful debate and discussion: the spotlight that has shone on global cold chain operations during 2020 at a time when COVID-19 has severely tested its resilience has shown that logistics and transport matter now more than ever.”
