fresh products need to be stored at low temperature and perishable, which determines that cold chain logistics must be adopted in the process of warehousing and distribution. Cold chain logistics refers to the refrigerated and frozen food sales in the production, storage and transportation, and to all aspects of the consumer is always in front of the low temperature required to ensure food quality, reduce food losses in a system engineering. With the development of science and technology and the development of refrigeration technology, it is a low temperature logistics process based on refrigeration technology and refrigeration technology.
The scope of application of
cold chain logistics include: primary agricultural products (vegetables, fruits, meat, poultry, eggs;; aquatic products, flowers, food processing products) (frozen food, poultry, meat, aquatic products such as packaging cooked food, ice cream and dairy products), fast food raw materials, special commodities (drugs).

Because the timeliness requirements of perishable food cold chain links with the organization and coordination, more so, food cold chain operation is always associated with the energy cost, is closely related to the development of effective control of operating costs and food cold chain.
storage, the construction of a key ring is cold (or in cooperation with third parties, such as outsourcing), according to foreign media news, Amazon logistics center across the country in the new cold storage, probably with fresh goods distribution. The construction of cold chain logistics center is a huge investment and long payback period
