Urban cold logistics during the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games

During the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Paris will see its urban logistics transformed. The refrigeration logistics sector will have to continue to ensure food distribution for the people of the Paris region, while managing the logistics of supplying the Games in a context of traffic restrictions and changes. The “last mile of cold” (the last segment of the delivery chain from an order to the end customer) will be a real challenge.

In this context, passive cold logistics by cargo bike (cyclo-logistics) could well find a place to develop in the context of the Olympic Games, but also for the future of major urban areas such as Paris.

Development of cyclo-logistics with Colis Activ'

References: Colis Activ’

The Colis Activ’ programme is helping to develop this type of logistics by offering a bonus for parcels delivered, to make this delivery method more attractive and more competitive. A directory, compiled by Colis Activ’, bringing together the main players in urban logistics by cargo bike has been created to centralise them.

Colis Activ’ also presents the advantages of passive refrigeration for delivering fresh produce by bike.

What is passive cold?

Passive cold involves combining an insulated container with previously frozen cold plates. These cold plates, also known as eutectic plates, release the cold stored inside the isothermal container and thus act as a cold engine. Depending on the formulation chosen, these plates can generate negative cold (for transporting frozen products) or positive cold (for transporting fresh products). Totally autonomous, this method of refrigeration does not require a thermal or electric refrigeration unit, as is the case with active refrigeration. For more information, visit our guide to passive refrigeration.

How do you find a "cyclo-logistics AND passive cold" solution?

COLD & CO, a specialist in the last-mile cold chain for 15 years, has designed and offers logistics professionals a range of autonomous refrigerated isothermal containers called CarryTemp, which can be adapted to cargo bikes and are ATP-certified.

This cost-effective, lightweight solution can take over from refrigerated lorries to get into the heart of city centers, LEZs (low-emission zones), pedestrianised streets and traffic-restricted lanes, typically for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

 

 

The CarryTemp XL9 has a useful volume of 900L and fits perfectly with Fleximodal’s Bicylift.

Keeping the Cold Chain during the handling of messenger RNA vaccines against COVID-19

Exposure of Cominarty and Moderna vaccines to room temperature for more than 3 minutes is irreversible as the vaccine is considered thawed. It can’t be re-frozen. In January 2021, the Cold Health Commission “Covid-19” of the “Association Française du Froid” (AFF) published several understanding notes, information and good practices of the cold chain around COVID-19 vaccines. 1.
