E-Quips Newsletter: 2014 IQPC Cold Chain And Benefit Of The EU GDP (2013/C 68/01)Source: CSafe Global
We just returned from a cold chain packaging show in Luxembourg where the major topics in conversations and presentations included regulatory updates with emphasis on the recent European guidance and its impact on CRT shipments as well as opportunities to identify lower cost transportation options
