Every day, perishable goods make their way across domestic, international, and intercontinental routes, through an elaborate supply chain from point of harvest to retail to fulfil worldwide consumption needs. These consumable and non-consumable
products, such as meats, fish, flowers need to be handled and transported in a fast and reliable manner to ensure shipment integrity and minimize any losses. This is largely made possible by air transport which facilitates the movement of perishables
across the world. Though proven to be robust, perishable transport has succumbed to inevitable pressures inflicted on the supply chain by the pandemic, such as capacity
constraints and transport restrictions which significantly impact food loss and waste.
