Within the perishable logistics industry, there are many on-going challenges that are necessary to combat.
The creation of food waste throughout the perishables supply chain is a main issue. There is also a lack of collaboration throughout the cold chain, with limited airlift capacity due to COVID-19, delays loading/offloading, incorrect documentation, and difficulties in temperature monitoring. These are all obstacles that are felt by all players involved the supply chain.
The main way to combat these problems is through increased visibility within the fragmentation that exists in perishable logistics. That is why Able Freight has created and utilized DataHub. It is imperative that we all use innovative technology, such as DataHub, in order to create a greater flow of information within the perishable logistics world.

We believe in an open platform, easy integrations, and data collaboration. This also includes professional and instant communication and reports on the shipment level, paperless operations and cloud-based document center. With all of these features, DataHub is the centralized location of a plethora of documents allowing for increased communication and reporting capabilities.
