Global container shipping line MSC and South African terminal operator FPT join the Perishables Products Export Control Board (PPECB) to support the virtual conference

Luxembourg, Monday 6th September 2021: The Cool Chain Association (CCA) is requesting delegates for its virtual Perishables Conference on 15th September 2021 to donate to children’s charity Every Infant Matters instead of paying a registration fee.

The conference, supported by platinum sponsor PPECB, gold sponsor MSC and silver sponsor FPT, will provide a platform for delegates to learn about new ways to drive quality and efficiency in the temperature-controlled supply chain.

The event will see Board members provide an update on current CCA projects that are supporting a more quality-driven cool chain.

“CCA members work together on projects that will help improve the quality of the cool chain and we have plenty of useful information to share at our conference, especially given the challenges of COVID,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, CCA Chairman.

“The value of collaboration is in sharp focus at the moment, and we will be sharing knowledge and information to help support stakeholders from across the cool logistical value chain to be more agile and less wasteful.”

The virtual event will take place on Wednesday 15th September from 15:30 to 18:00 CET.

Guest speakers will include Lucien Jansen, PPECB Chief Executive Officer, and Dr Radhika Batra, Founder of Every Infant Matters, the CCA’s chosen charity.

Every Infant Matters serves poverty-stricken communities in India, Nigeria, and the Dominican Republic with last mile healthcare solutions.

The conference programme will feature talks by Evangelakakis and Nicola Caristo, CCA Secretary General and Airline Partner Manager of SkyCell AG, along with round tables chaired by CCA Board Directors examining data sharing, risk and change management, and collaboration in practice.
