refrigerated warehousing

How Covid-19 is Impacting Industrial Refrigeration?


The increase in demand for refrigerated warehousing is real: in the last few weeks, all the companies that are working in industrial refrigeration have seen a surge of orders. The reason for it lies in the sudden increase in demand for fresh food that has struck the food industry. Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, many countries have outlined contingency plans to prevent the spread of the contagion. The closure of restaurants and cafes has left on the retail channel the task of feeding the population.

The cold-chain system has reacted by increasing to its limits the deliveries, putting pressure on the whole chain backward. On the other hand, in many developing countries, the export of fruit and vegetables has experienced a peak of demand that the existing structures cannot support anymore. But, the contingency itself has blocked the export of goods for the refrigeration industry, creating a significant bottleneck.

The only way out is to use the thermal insulation that is available on the market: contact us to know where you can find our point of sales.


I want to share with you this exciting research made by McKinsey over the consumption trends in the next future.  The Visual Capitalist has illustrated them very well. It shows the spending trends for people in the next future, and it explains the constraints that the cold-chain is now experiencing. Groceries have the best outlook among food purchases, and they are at the same level as home entertainment.

For example, the movie platforms had to lower their streaming quilty to avoid surcharging the internet. The same thing is happening to the cold-chain, in a moment when supplying it of equipment and thermal insulation is pretty complicated.

Globe Panels Ltd is available to help you with the thermal insulation right now.
