Cool Insights: Fresh Needs Fast—Rail is Up to the Challenge

Posted August 22, 2012 | Atlanta, GA

Nick Pacitti, co-founder of Sterling Solutions LLC, recently authored the Cool Insights column for the July/August edition of Food Logistics, titled “Fresh Needs Fast—Rail is Up to the Challenge.”  In the column, Pacitti suggests express rail as an efficient and cost-effective, yet often overlooked, means of produce transportation. 

For the past three years, faculty, staff, and partners of the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute’s IFC have contributed their thoughts on various aspects of the food chain to Food Logistics Magazine under a column called Cool Insights.
