Cargo Talk - - Aviation -

Ac­cord­ing to Pawanexh Kohli, Chief Ad­vi­sor and CEO, NCCCD, more than the cold stor­ages there is a greater need to de­velop in­te­grated cold chain across the coun­try to meet the grow­ing de­mand from hor­ti­cul­ture sec­tor.

“In com­ing years, fresh in­vest­ments will take place in the pack houses and re­frig­er­ated car­ri­ers,” he added.

Look­ing at the grow­ing de­mand for in­te­grated cold chain, the Na­tional Cen­tre for Cold Chain De­vel­op­ment (NCCCD) has pro­jected the need to cre­ate 30,000 pack houses and 60,000 re­frig­er­ated car­ri­ers (known as RTU - reefer trans­port unit) in the coun­try.
