The professional and reliable cold-chain transportation, as well as proper temperature for shipment, can keep the fresh and authentic flavor of foodstuffs, free of microorganisms that may result from the rising temperature. From suppliers to METRO delivery centers, from delivery centers to METRO stores, and ultimately to end customers, METRO practicesthe professional and rigorous standards to ensure the unbroken coldchain throughout the delivery process. Hence, regardless of foodstuffs' origin, they remain as fresh as the original condition.
After the fresh foodstuff is transported by air to the cold-chain delivery center of METRO China, the operating personnel will measure the temperature of foodstuff, replace the refrigerating liquid in the refrigeration containers, and add ice packsas required, so as to ensure the consistent freshness. Then, we will choose air or land transportation according to the distance from the delivery center to the store, ensuring its timely arrival.
