On 13 November 2019, GCCA European Director Julie Hanson held a successful Cold Chain Connection in Copenhagen, Denmark. The industry event organized in partnership with the Danish Cold Storage Association attracted over twenty decision makers of third-party temperature-controlled logistics providers from Scandinavia and neighboring countries.
The Cold Chain Connection program featured an interactive session on health and safety for managers where attendees openly shared success stories and challenges around health and safety culture in companies. This learning experience, facilitated by industry expert David Hansen, led participants to think outside the box, voice new ideas and best practices as a driver for business innovation, performance and competitiveness. The event also included a facility visit to the industrial site of the leading food service company, Dagrofa, where visitors could learn more about CO2 refrigeration system to operate temperature-controlled facility.
"The Cold Chain Connection in Copenhagen was a great short event. Interesting place, I met some great new people and it was nice to see some more and new “youngsters“ attending. I had a great time and look forward to re-reading the presentation. The interactive way of doing the health and safety topic combined with working towards productivity is really a positive tool. I have lots of new ideas now." stated Ben van Leeuwen, Manager, Frigolanda.
