Increasing concerns for food safety will spur the demand for refrigerated vehicles

Refrigerated transportation is a critical link in the overall cold chain logistic operations. The localization of perishable commodities, growing population, coupled with rise in freight transportation due to economic development, has fueled the market for refrigerated transportation. Freight operators have also invested in the replacement of the equipment used for refrigerated transportation. In countries such as China and India, the current vehicle fleet is proving to be insufficient, given the high levels of population and rising per capita income. Government is facing a challenge of food wastage and initiatives are being undertaken by various government agencies to preserve the quality of the food during storage and distribution. Quality of food consumed is also a priority for the end users in the wake of increasing income. Initiatives for food security and changing perceptions of the end users are estimated to drive the demand for refrigerated vehicles.

Increase in Demand for Frozen Perishables

Globally, shifts in economic, social, and demographic trends are bound to put pressure on food suppliers. These changes will reshape the consumption pattern and consumer perception of frozen foods. The projected growth of frozen foods is promising, with growth opportunities from emerging markets such as the countries of the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.

As frozen foods have a longer shelf life, they are preferred when climatic conditions affect crop productivity. Food manufacturers include frozen foods in processed and packaged foods to provide consumers with food products at affordable prices. Freezing techniques provide the perfect solution to move food from the farmer’s market to the supermarket by improving affordability, accessibility, and preventing loss of food.

In the frozen food category, there is a huge opportunity in developing countries and developed countries. In developing markets such as India, China, and Latin American countries, the growing incomes are leading to growth in the middle-class population who are eager to try out different ethnic and international cuisine. The growth of service sectors such as fast food chains, quick service restaurants, and hypermarkets are accelerating the growth of frozen foods.

TruTac software suite provides compliance and control for Barnack Transport

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

Peterborough’s Barnack Storage and Logistics is part of the wider Barnack Group which was first established in 1986. 30 years on, it set out to complete its full ‘farm-to-folk’ service provision with its own in-house transport arm, Barnack Transport Services, under the stewardship of Transport Manager Maurice Lane. One of the first things he did was turn to TruTac for help with compliance.

161116-trutac-software-suite-provides-compliance-and-control-for-barnack-transport“I’d seen TruTac’s products demonstrated previously and was very impressed with the set up” Maurice explains, “so when I changed job to come to Barnack I contacted them directly and asked them to come and talk to us.”  As a new start up, there was a lot to get in place in time for the May 2016 launch. “We now use pretty much everything TruTac do” Maurice enthuses. “We use TruControl for driver-hours analysis, TruLicence for checking and verification of employees’ entitlement to drive, and the digicard-based TruTime for clocking in and out.”

Between them, Maurice says these three components are saving him both time and worry. “The automated reports we get on a weekly basis give me a quick view of how we’re performing and whether we’ve got any issues needing attention, while the desktop view via the Dashboard makes it very clear as to what the more detailed situation is at the touch of a button” he says.

The TruTac software is also very easy to use. “Even when you go in to look at issues in depth, pulling up the various reports and charts available, again it’s very clear to navigate, a very well thought out system.”

All in all, Maurice Lane is so impressed with what he’s seen so far of TruTac’s capabilities he’s now starting to roll out the final piece in the jigsaw: TruChecks – which allows drivers to record the completion of each step of their daily vehicle checks and report any defects in real time via an app on their mobile phone. “Initially we had agency drivers rather than our own full time people, but that’s starting to change now, so we’ll be implementing TruChecks in the next three to four weeks” he confirms. “From my perspective the whole TruTac system gives me everything I require as a Transport Manager to keep an eye on what is happening in our operation and engage with what needs to be done.”

COILPOD Dust Containment Bag – CONDENSER COIL CLEANING

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR CONDENSER COIL CLEANING FOR PLUG-IN REFRIGERATORS AND FREEZERS Refrigeration and freezer appliances are major electricity “hogs” and are in all types of retail food outlets and institutions (convenience stores, restaurants, franchised fast food establishments, schools, etc.).  Sadly, we are discovering that most persons and institutions owning such devices are not following an important maintenance task for their plug-in cooling appliances as recommended by the manufacturers of these appliances — regular condenser coil cleanings.   The result: close to a 10% higher electricity bill for each non-cleaned refrigeration unit and close to a 20% higher bill for each freezer unit!  Additionally, the non-maintained units: run less efficiently causing premature appliance ageing due to longer run times; have an increased chance of equipment failure because of higher pressures and operating temperatures; and cause unnecessary service calls.  Finally, the store environment holding the unit becomes less “green”.  This problem goes unrecognized because the visually non-appealing condenser coil unit is hidden behind a panel or grille.  Thus, the buildup of dirt and debris is not noticed, often until a service technician discovers it on a service call made when the unit begins to malfunction. The respected Food Services Technology Center (San Ramon, CA) is a very strong condenser coil cleaning advocate: see http://www.fishnick.com/saveenergy/energytips/condensercoils/.  With the projected market in just refrigerated display cases slated to grow from about $8.8 billion dollars in 2012 to about $16.3 billion dollars in 2019, this issue will grow exponentially (see http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/1684967), especially for plug-in units which might account for almost 68% of this growth.  So how is this critical maintenance program to be conducted?  Since the appliances containing these condenser units are usually located inside the food establishment, the traditional cleaning method has been to use either a combination of brushing and vacuum or, even better, a combination of brushing, vacuum, with a supply of compressed air to assist in the dislodging of dirt or debris that is lodged within the coil structure.  Using compressed air (e.g., from a standard wet/dry vac) is problematic since, unless contained, this air steam will pollute the store environment necessitating additional cleanup.  Luckily, our COILPOD® dust containment bag (which is fully described at www.coilpod.comandshown in the accompanying photo) provides a way to encase the condenser coil structure during cleaning to practice this maintenance task in a “green” manner. It is not even necessary to have an HVAC-R service technician perform this rather non-technical cleaning task — it is definitely within the capability of even a do-it-yourselfer. Simply place the COILPOD bag over the coils, tighten the drawstring at the bottom of the bag, and blast off debris from the coils using compressed air supplied through one port in the transparent front of the bag while vacuuming it out of the bag through the other port in the bag’s front.  A standard wet/dry vacuum can be employed to supply compressed air and vacuum if desired. Alternatively, a vacuum can be used with a separate source of compressed air supplied from a separate compressed air cylinder.  A demonstration video showing the cleaning operation is available at:

Recently, the US-based PRSM (Professional Retail Store Maintenance) Association designated the COILPOD cleaning technique as a “best practice” method for this cleaning task. When condenser coil cleaning is now performed in an indoor setting using compressed air and vacuum, it is a two person job with one person directing the compressed air through the coil structure towards the second person who attempts to catch the blown off debris with a damp cloth or towel or, perhaps, with a large plastic garbage bag.  One person can now perform the job with the COILPOD bag, and they won’t be afraid to do it during normal business hours as they might with the previously described method.
