Where temperature-controlled transport is until now dominantly carried out over the road, companies are starting to wonder whether this can be done by rail as well. And this is possible, as companies like Thermoking, Unit45 and New SIlk Way Logistics are constantly upgrading their equipment and solutions to serve this demand.

In RailFreight Live today, we talk about cold chain solutions. We visit Thermoking, the producer of the refrigerated container and hear how these are made. In the studio we have Hanno Reeser from New Silk Way Logistics, a specialist when it comes to conditioned transport. He will share the latest developments.
