Speakers announced for 12th Cool Logistics Global conference

Now in its 12th year, Cool Logistics Global is the leading event and forum for logistics, shipping and supply chain professionals focusing on perishable cargoes. The 2020 full-feature, live virtual event is hosted by the Port of Rotterdam with the theme ‘Redesigning the Cold Chain: Imagine, Transform and Rebuild’. We have a broad agenda covering all aspects of the cold supply chain, set against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, with sessions from industry leaders and thinkers who are active in the global cold supply chain.  Now more than ever, the international cold chain community needs to connect, communicate and collaborate and the 12th Cool Logistics Global live virtual conference is the forum that will allow this community to connect.

The debate and discussion on key topics and trends will include cold chain technology, shipper case studies and views on post pandemic recovery prospects, the global cold chain in the ‘new’ normal, global vs. near-shore sourcing, ‘the last mile’, ports and cold chain business, energy, efficiency and environmental concerns across the cold chain, reefer technology and global supply considerations plus much more.
