But food safety and high performance is another area where SSI SCHAEFER makes a difference. Take for example the energy efficient but highly automated logistics solution implemented for ORCA Cold Chain Solutions in the Philippines. This solution faces the challenges of the food industry that up to 37% of the food produced worldwide is lost due to poor packaging, storage and handling. It also enabled the partners to reduce electricity costs by almost 35% and minimize human intervention.
