The demand for fresh food is increasing the need for better shipping and storing capabilities across the entire cold supply chain. Food spoilage is a major problem with ~1/3 of it being thrown away. Food safety is a problem as well with 1 in 6 Americans contracting foodborne illness each year. We do see a future where all food shipped from farm to fork, arrives safely and sustainably. Now we do not produce, move, store or sell food directly. We serve the businesses that do all of those things. Serving businesses and optimizing our customer's performance across their Cold Chain is the role we play. Our team's mission each day is to 1) efficiently keep food fresh and safe, 2) track each step and 3) make it easy for our customers. We believe if we do these three things, and do them well, we will help bring about the future we want to see.
