Berlin Fruit Logistica : An opportunity to RE-THINK the logistics of perishables

Easyfresh, the only world's reefer logistics supplier will play a key role in the "old and new" markets in  the years to come

By 2050 the world's population will reach 9.1 billion, around 30 percent higher than today. Nearly all of this population increase will occur in developing countries. Urbanization will continue at an accelerated pace, and about 70 percent of the world's population will be urban (compared to almost 50 percent today). Income levels will be many multiples of what they are now.

In order to feed this larger, more urban and richer population, food production (net of food used for biofuels) must increase by 70 percent. Annual cereal production will need to rise to about 3 billion tonnes from 2.1 billion today and annual meat production will need to rise by over 200 million tonnes to reach 470 million tonnes. This is certified in several studies by the FAO

Besides it, food writers are pointing several new food trends observed in the past years.Healthy food vs fast food, gluten-free food, etc. This is happening in so-to-say "classic markets", but likewise in richer countries around the globe.

The above, linked to the relevant presence in fruit and vegetable trades of the retail and supermarket chains everywhere. Not only in Europe and the US, wholesalers require all-year-round fresh produce in their shelves. Even in the remotest inland city a retailer will be selling fruit originated in another hemisphere or distant country.

Needless to add the firm requirement of reducing CO2 emissions, instead of standard transport means. This includes concepts like "motorways of the seas" vs road transportation or "greener" multimodal solutions.

All the above means that traffic or fresh and frozen cargoes will grow, together with its complexity and permanently changing dynamics. The "classic reefer routes" will remain, but many others are "in motion" and happening !

Easyfresh specialised & global presence puts us in an excellent position to assist the industry to apply smart reefer logistics solutions given upcoming and cited challenging years.
