Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said, “Several cold chain service providers have recently started to offer end-to-end integrated services to the end-users in the Global Cold Chain market. They are currently providing cold chain management services to the customers and participating in their decision-making processes. Numerous service providers offer end-to-end cold chain management services such as inventory management, order scheduling, order forecasting, warehousing, and delivery management. Disaster recovery services are also offered by vendors, which will enable customers to track consignments and help them communicate with the entire supply chain. Some vendors are also providing training sessions for everyone involved in the cold chain. Therefore, the increasing provision of end-to-end integrated services by vendors is another trend expected to impact the global cold chain market during the forecast period.”
