CSMIA handles first frozen food consignment with va-Q-tec containers
Consignment, consisting of 264 packages/3,540 kgs, was loaded into two pre-cooled, refrigerated va-Q-tec containers
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) achieved a significant milestone by managing its inaugural consignment of frozen ready-to-serve food products.
CSMIA successfully coordinated the seamless transportation of highly perishable South Indian delicacies, such as idli and dada, from Mumbai to Amsterdam through KLM Flight 878 using va-Q-tec containers, says a release from CSMIA.
"These containers are engineered to hold a specific temperature range consistently throughout the entire transportation process without any deviations. These units provide required temperature control (2 to 8°C) ensuring uninterrupted cold chain throughout the supply chain."
The consignment, consisting of 264 packages/3,540 kilograms, was equipped with coolants and was loaded into two pre-cooled refrigerated va-Q-tec containers, the release added. "Upon reaching the Cargo Service Centre terminal, the consignment was transferred to the pre-cooled va-Q-tec units, seamlessly processed, and handed over to the carrier within 3.30 hours. The entire cityside cold chain logistics support for this shipment was provided by BRRING 2.0 Perishable Distribution Solutions."
CSMIA has made substantial investments in state-of-the-art cold chain infrastructure to handle highly temperature-sensitive perishables, the release added.
