In Mexico, a vehicle fleet of 77,000 transport units dedicated to the Cold Chain and a little more than 15 million cubic meter of refrigerated transport is estimated.
The Top 5 States with the highest number of refrigerated automotive transport units are made up of Sonora (5,200), Sinaloa (7,400), Jalisco (4,700), Nuevo León (8,300) and Mexico City (10,000), making up 54% of the National Fleet.
In Mexico, there are regulations for the Cold Chain in Transportation aimed at the storage and distribution of perishable products, medicines and vaccines in need of cooling and/or freezing, which require strict compliance.
Refrigerated vehicles must undergo periodic inspection to ensure their operation and the required temperatures, They must have temperature indicators and recorders.
Cold room and refrigerators at a temperature of 7°C or less, freezer room and refrigerators at -18°C with visible thermometer or temperature recording devices working and in good condition.
Refrigeration equipment must be kept at 7°C maximum, those of freezing at a temperature according to the needs of the product.
A risk assessment of the delivery routes should be used to determine where temperature controls are required. Equipment used to monitor temperature during transport within vehicles and/or containers should be maintained and calibrated at regular intervals.
In the coming years, the main challenges of the Cold Chain will focus on disruptions in the supply chain, the increase in demand for the service and population growth, estimating that by 2050 the population in Mexico will increase to 155.2 million, representing great challenges for automotive transport companies.
