"We make success predictable"
"Advice is like mushrooms. The wrong kind can prove fatal."
" Whatever you are, be a good one."
" In a highly competitive world neither the best product is sold alone."
" Customers service represents the heart of a brand in the hearts of its customers."
" The best time to start investing is today, the other best time, was yesterday."
" We are no longer in the information age. We are in the age of information management."
"Great ideas are always in season."
The highly improbable can happen
The world is unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. And this cannot be.
Remember Leicester FC won the 2016 Premier League, even though the majority of experts were sure they would end the season at the very bottom of the league.
Human beings have always tried to control and predict the world.The French mathematician Pierre-Simon Laplace became famous for claiming that, if we knew the state of every atom at any time as well as all natural forces, we would be able to predict the world with certainty.
Anyhow, without the ability to predict, we are forced to confront ourselves with the unpredictability of the world, which seems to be increasing with the globalization and the speedy technological development. The lifetime of technologies are getting shorter. The same holds for companies. New small companies are constantly entering market. Thus it becomes harder to control the outcome of our efforts, when we manage companies, organizations or projects. Fewer and fewer companies make 5-year strategies (we in Easyfresh do it !)
However we are not completely checkmated by the unpredictability of the world. We can do something. We can reflect on what it means to us. And perhaps we can ask for real advice and channel some of the mental energy we use to seek certain knowledge, have answers ready-at-hand and try to predict all possible outcomes into a greater acceptance that we can never know for certain.
We can try to be more curious and open about some of the more unlikely possibilities. We can keep going on projects, which seem impossible, because suddenly our luck might change. Or we can embark on new ones even though they might seem a little too optimistic. Because the highly improbable can happen.

Invest in food safety
Truck, plane, train or ship—no matter how you move it—the safety of food must be ensured. And as the volume of perishable food, especially chilled and frozen cargoes, via ocean carriers continues to increase, both ports and carriers are making serious cold chain investments to do just that.
Many of the world’s largest ocean carriers are continuously adding refrigerated containers to their fleets, making the transport of fresh, frozen and chilled cargo less risky, as consumers demand more. Shippers have shifted to steamship as the ability to manage and track locations and temperatures in containers has improved.
Controlled atmosphere and other innovative technologies are helping keep perishables safe, as well as state-of-the-art equipment that keeps cargo fresher and stable on long voyages.
A leading global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and IoT solutions, has developed a so-called smart container, which they say “fills the vessel traceability gap and enables seamless management of refrigerated containers across road, rail, water, ports and yards.”
The safety of perishable goods also is connected to the logistics on land as ocean carriers come into port. Many ports are looking to establish cold storage facilities on sight to attract carriers, while others are ensuring food safety through alternate methods.
In October, Port Tampa Bay announced the addition of a 132,000-squre-foot cold storage warehouse that will handle refrigerated import and export cargoes. The facility features a 7,200 square foot climate-controlled fumigation building attached by awnings are not breaking the cold chain by coming out of the cold storage and going into the fumigation room.”
The building will use a Freon gas in the engine room and pump a food grade glycol throughout the facility.
Removing the use of ammonia in the cold chain plays a crucial role in protecting food, as not only is ammonia very dangerous and harmful to humans if inhaled, but if the facility had a pipe burst and ammonia were to get on the product, it would be destroyed.
Food safety is definitely important, be sure that the cold chain is not broken.
