The Cool Chain Association (CCA) has launched a new Technical Committee and welcomed five new members.

The Committee was launched at the recent Annual General Meeting, during which former CCA Secretary General Edwin Kalischnig, Chief Executive Officer, Xtreme Technologies, was made an honorary Board member. The five new CCA members include Qatar Cargo, 7P Solutions, FreshBizDev, SmartCAE, and AirCargo Consultancy Global.

The Committee’s aim is to assist, analyse, study, and manage critical points affecting product quality along the cool chain, as well as developing standards and initiating projects. Committee members will be CCA members who are not on the Board and have volunteered to become Project Co-ordinators, responsible for the facilitation of initiatives and the proposal of final solutions to the Board.

“The Committee itself is open only to CCA members, but we welcome any suggestions for projects that will progress the ambition of the Association to reduce waste and loss and improve the quality, efficiency, and value of the cool supply chain," said Nicola Caristo, Secretary General, CCA and Airline Partner Manager, SkyCell AG.
