The scope of application of cold chain logistics includes: primary agricultural products: vegetables, fruits; meat, poultry, eggs; aquatic products, flower products. Processed food: frozen food, poultry, meat, aquatic products and other packaged cooked food, ice cream and dairy products, chocolate; fast food raw materials. Special commodities: medicines, so it has higher requirements and more complexity than the general normal temperature logistics system, and the construction investment is also much larger, which is a huge system engineering.
Compared with normal temperature logistics, the main difference of cold chain logistics is that it needs to keep low temperature, needs the whole process of cold chain, involves more disciplines, more complicated management, and higher cost. Cold chain logistics has special requirements on time, quality, temperature, humidity and sanitary environment, and the operation is more complicated and strict.
