Cold Chain Quality Indicator

A standard for quality indicators in cold chains describes the quality management system of an organization that wants to demonstrate its ability to continuously supply high quality cold chain services.

Monday, August 20, 2012

CCQI, the Cold Chain Quality Indicator, is a benchmarking system that accesses the logistics capacity of a cold chain in order to maintain a certain temperature during transportation and handling of perishable temperature sensitive products (PTSP).

The proposal is to establish a CCQI system that is transparent and easy to implement, that has the ability to show proficiency and excellence in logistics operation. This requirement is independent of the numerical quality indicators used by companies.

Founded on a risk-based approach, the standard identifies facilities, methods or instructions of the logistics chain and awards points to the methods that are useful to prevent damage of perishable products. These are in addition to a number-the CCQI characteristic indicator. Along with other compliance requirements and a benchmark CCQI to be surpassed, this management system is an auditable industry standard, which to date is recognized as the CCQI industry standard.
