Cold chain services are far more complex than merely storing and transporting products. Gartner states that, "For logistics leaders responsible for successfully managing cold chain requirements, it is imperative to organize their strategies and actions according to a comprehensive logistics cold chain framework that details all operational, strategic and adjacent activities."
