Ranpack Expanded its Cold Chain Offerings with the Acquisition of Recycold Cool Solutions BV

Ranpack expanded its cold chain offerings by acquiring Recycold Cool Solutions BV in December 2021. The companies merged to offer sustainable packaging solutions for the cold chain industry. This strategy may enable the company to enhance its product portfolio.

Restrictions on Trade to Impede Market Progress

This market was negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to trade restrictions. The sudden spike in COVID-19 patients led to the closure of manufacturing activities, thereby hindering the supply chain. Furthermore, transport restrictions resulted in raw material shortages. However, companies adopt automated production techniques, advanced sanitization methods, and reduced capacities to enhance sales. These factors may drive the industry’s progress.
