Hi All Members & Partners
As 2019 comes to close, ARPI would like to wish our members, core partners and other industry professionals a safe and happy holiday season. We would also like to reflect on the highlights from a successful year serving the national cold chain. We can add the amount of new members 23% with expansion, provide cold chain seminar & international conference, expo, training, current data & news, advocacy, and digitalizing cold chain platform were notable topics across the industry in 2019.
As we plan for 2020 and beyond, we continue to focus on the national & broad issues that matter most to the cold chain industry: market intelligence, advocacy, industry promotion, and workforce development. Moving into 2020, you will see renewed emphasis on programs and initiatives like the Energy, Excellence Program, Cold Chain Data Index, Certified Working Competency, the Industry Promotion Campaign, and the Productivity & Benchmarking Report – designed to help you manage challenges in these areas. Plus, we have new tools and resources being developed for 2020 that you can put to use. ARPI extends a thank you for reading the ARPI e-Newsletter and being a valuable part of the National Cold Chain. The year 2019 was an active year in cold chain promotion, advocacy, standardization, which were some of seminars & most-read articles in website & national newspaper for the year as you can see from our year end Top 10 from cold chain logistics article of 2019 edition.
