Third-party logistics provider Yusen Logistics has started temperature-controlled, less-than-truckload services for food products in Indochina.
“With reefer trucks often used for road transportation of food products and other chilled cargo, solutions can be costly with scheduling issues, as trucks sometimes need to be chartered even for small orders, or postponed until more cargo can be consolidated,” the company said.
Yusen said its LTL reefer services allow for consolidation, flexible scheduling, and reduced transportation costs in comparison with chartered trucks. During truck transfers, thermal blankets are used to keep temperature of products consistent, the company added.
The service is currently underway between Ho Chi Minh and Phnom Penh.
