November 20, 2017

Norfolk partner John Padgett, chair of McGuireWoods’ transportation industry team, published an article titled “New Technology Helps BCOs Meet Cold Chain Challenges” in the Journal of Commerce’s October edition of its Cool Cargoes supplement.

In the article, Padgett discussed the regulatory challenges of transporting refrigerated food supplies. He described how investing in new technology may help beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) mitigate risk.

Referencing the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act’s stringent reporting requirements, Padgett detailed new opportunities presented by digitally connected devices that enable cargo owners and other carriers to transmit and remotely monitor refrigerated containers holding food supplies.
