What is a cold chain?

A cold chain is created when time-temperature sensitive products such as food products, pharmaceuticals (medicines) or chemicals are transported from one location to another. The goal of the cold chain is to preserve a certain temperature stability over the total duration of the product traveling time from sender to receiver so the quality of the product can be guaranteed. The distance between these locations and the means of transport used, will stress the impact on the cold chain. Needless to say that the creation of a successful cold chain is a big challenge, certainly when international product-travels are required or in fine-distribution (last-mile) chains with multiple drop-deliveries. This is where we, as developer and manufacturer of cold chain logistic solutions, offer a helping hand.

Thermal engineering

Independent of the Temax product portfolio, the company Krautz Temax also offers a wide range on thermal engineering services. With these services we try to offer customers a helping hand and an added value in their search, implementation and controlling of their ideal temperature controlled logistics and complete cold chain operations. The subjects below will be expanded to more services in very short time. Dedicated specialists in their field of expertise are at your disposal.

Unique - we pre-engineer your possible cold chain temperature risks

We perform temperature forecast engineering C.C.R.M. "Cold Chain Risk Management" of the temperature flow in your cold chain before you actually ship the products. Advantage: pre-transport temperature Risk detection = S.O.P's optimization on H.C.C.P.'s. in the chain.

Cold chain optimization engineering

Next to thermal engineering we can also offer you assistance and advice in your internal and external logistics in order to close or optimize your cold chain. Krautz-Temax has a lot of experience in optimizing cold chain logistics in the complex food industry with multiple temperature structures in one plant and has developed a wide range of specific solutions. So, would you like to have an external view on your cold chain logistics, just let us know. We will be happy to provide you with attention points on the H.C.C.P.'s in your cold chain and offer possible solutions.
