Food Logistics has recognized Viking Cold Solutions among the top logistics software providers for 2020, as one of the leading software and technology partners to the food and beverage industry, for the second year in a row.
The publication named Viking Cold as a winner of its 2020 FL100+ Award in recognition of the significant reductions in both energy usage and costs and operational improvements that Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage (TES) technology delivers in cold chain settings.
Now in its 17th year, the FL100+ is a highly respected annual listing of top logistics software providers that are addressing the unique challenges of today’s food and beverage supply chain. Recipients are judged to deliver products and services that support efficient transportation and warehousing, minimize operational waste, facilitate safe operations, and assure regulatory compliance.
Viking Cold was selected for the strengths of its innovative Thermal Energy Storage (TES) technology, which equips cold chain facilities with the means to enhance refrigeration efficiency and increase operational resilience. This not only helps customers reduce their carbon footprint, but also achieves a reduction in energy costs of up to 50%.
Combining environmentally friendly phase change materials with a powerful suite of cloud-based operational tools, TES integrates easily with existing controls to provide real-time monitoring and analytics of temperatures, equipment status, and energy use.
These data-driven insights are made available to warehouse managers via the Viking Cold client portal with custom reports, notifications, and analytics giving them the actionable intelligence to improve cold storage operations and reduce costly peak-period energy consumption for up to 13 hours per day.
All the while, TES ensures stable refrigerated temperatures are maintained, which safeguards food products, limits waste, and minimizes disruption during periods of downtime or power outage.
The full list of FL100+ Award winners was revealed by Food Logistics in an announcement on December 16. Full details will be published in the November/December 2020 print issue of the magazine.
