Over the past 20 years, PLM has focused on end-to-end cold supply chain solutions in transportation, creating industry standards to insure food safety from the farm to table. PLM has been instrumental in developing industry standards for regulatory compliance alignment with FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act that have been accepted by international trade organizations. PLM’s technology solutions and industry engagement have been to keep its clients on the forefront of the demanding and changing market and bring supply chain transparency in the digital world to the cold chain. By partnering with PLM, customers have access to nationwide locations dedicated exclusively to the technology based SMART trailers for leasing, rental, maintenance and fleet management of refrigerated trailers, with the largest selection of multi-temp, single-temp, and eco-friendly electric trailers from 28 feet to 53 feet in length.
“I believe that blockchain and the shared digital ledger provides FDA with the tools that they were seeking when they passed into law the Food Safety Modernization Act,” Don Durm, Vice President, Customer Solutions commented. “Blockchain will bring unbroken transparency from the farm to the table and provide significance to the supply chain in communicating the value of the product to the consumer on food safety and quality”
