Chronopost choose Cargo 1000 insulated containers for its food home delivery service to preserve the cold chain 


Chronopost, a national leader in the express delivery of parcels up to 30 kg to business and private customers, has a team of 3,500 employees and serves 230 countries worldwide.
Their new division, Chronofresh, offers the temperature-controlled express delivery service of food products to professionals and end users throughout France


Consumer buying preferences are changing, thanks to the e-commerce boom and the trend for “eating less, but eating better” choosing local products.
Chronofresh needed to deliver food products (dried, fresh or frozen) throughout France, quickly and safely, ensuring maximum freshness of the products up to their destination.


After a careful technical evaluation, Melform has studied and supplied the CARGO 1000 isothermal container for their new express delivery service for food products at a controlled temperature (between 0 and 4 ° C and – 18 ° C) in order to guarantee a rigorous respect for the cold chain.

Modular and mobile, our CARGO 1000 containers are fully compatible with the fleet of traditional Chronopost vehicles. They allow to associate products stored at different temperatures inside the same vehicle, ensuring flexibility and load organization.

Melform insulated containers, all provided with ATP certification, has been equipped with RFID chips for the traceability of the package throughout the transport. The temperature data are recorded and transmitted at each step (collection, sorting, routing and delivery).

With our solution, the customer can grant deliveries of:
fresh products between 0 and 4°C
deep frozen products at a temperature of less than -18°C
grocery products at room temperatue

Currently, there are about 300 MELFORM insulated containers used and circulating on the French territory.

Thanks to the collaboration with Melform, transport and delivery of fresh products, in full respect of the cold chain, are no longer a problem.

Home delivery of temperature-controlled foods has become efficient and productive.
