Increase in the number of cold stores

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a significant shift in the supply chain outlook, enabling the increasing use of high-end digital technologies to achieve operational efficiency as well as health concerns. The changing outlook for the logistics industry, the requirement for substantial cost optimization and optimal inventory management are expected to support the growth of the Asia-Pacific healthcare cold chain logistics market.

Japanese logistics companies put their vast experience to work in Southeast Asia, building modern warehouses with features like temperature controls to meet the changing demands of local consumers. As people’s incomes improve in Asia, they expect faster delivery of online shopping orders, which requires automated warehouse management to save time and tight temperature controls to keep fresh goods.

Thailand is the Asian country with the most advanced warehouses. Indonesia, with a population of over 270 million, has enormous potential but has lagged behind in logistics development, in part due to transportation constraints posed by the country’s many islands. However, the demand from domestic-oriented enterprises is increasing,

Companies invest millions of dollars in their cold chain operations to create effective, efficient and reliable processes because end-to-end cold chain security is the weak link in the system. In addition, the number of cold storage warehouses is increasing, due to strong demand for food and pharmaceutical products in the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, an increase in cold storage is expected to drive the growth of the Asia-Pacific Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics market.
