Ingersoll Rand Promoting Development of China's Cold Chain Industry

BEIJING, CHINA (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- For the second consecutive year, Ingersoll Rand played a major role in the “U.S.-China Cold Chain Standards and Regulations Conference.” Held July 27-28 in Beijing, China, the conference promoted the formulation and execution of regulations for the Chinese cold chain industry and strengthening of partnerships between government and private industry in the United States and China. The conference was organized by the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing, U.S. Agricultural Trade office, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and American Society of Transportation and Logistics.

The nearly 200 representatives in attendance from U.S. and China government agencies, industry associations and cold chain equipment manufacturers and service providers heard a keynote speech by Jorge Saenz, director of Cold Chain Management Services for Climate Solutions. In his speech, Saenz said the success of the cold chain rests on:

- increasing the awareness and knowledge of the people involved in the handling of perishables
- developing, implementing and managing the right processes
- investing in infrastructure and reliable equipment

He also discussed our company’s experiences with using a simulation environment to optimize supply chain management, improve productivity efficiency and assess the economic impact at the retail level.

Ingersoll Rand's participation in this event demonstrates our commitment to helping China develop a healthy and sustainable cold chain industry that meets the country's food safety needs.
