Year after year consumers spend more on temperature controlled goods especially in the fresh segment (chilled zone). Health awareness and advanced shipping solutions are the main parameters fueling this trend in the developed parts of the world.
Chilled, frozen and other temperature controlled foodstuff have short shelf life by nature due to the fact that they are highly perishable such as meat, fruits, vegetables, dairies, delicatessen and confectionery.

The Cyprus Chilled, Frozen and Temperature Controlled Foods Environment

Cyprus differs from the major European markets due to the following facts:
  • Cyprus is an island and as a result, the continental short and efficient trucking transit times and costs are not achievable. Sea freight and Air freight services are used to affect the transit time and the cost respectively

  • It is a favoured seasonal destination for more than two million tourists, three times the local population, which creates demand variations stretching to as much as 3:1 in monthly comparisons in specific areas

  • 98% of the businesses in Cyprus are small and medium size enterprises. This fact is also reflected in the chilled, frozen and temperature controlled foods supply side as well as at the POS (Point of Sale) side. Additionally, part of the Cyprus market is consisted by local producers of chilled goods. As a result, the supply chain has more orders of lower values to many POSs thus adding to the logistic costs

  • Electronic ordering and invoicing is not yet developed in Cyprus. For this reason, the overall administration cost to both suppliers and retailers is getting increased


GAP being the largest logistics organization in Cyprus will continue to develop new logistics services through modern and innovative techniques to provide to its customers the opportunity to decrease their overall costs, improve their stock management, enhance their distribution network and improve their bottom line.
