Research on the Optimization Model for Urban Cool Chain Distribution

With the improvement of citizens' income and living standards, demand for fresh food is increasing. These increases require the rapid development of urban cool chains to meet demand. This paper analyzes the special nature of the cool chain as a part of the distribution process, and its present problems in China. It then establishes an optimization model based on the lowest comprehensive cost spent in distribution. The model can provide a reference for effective distribution through urban cool chains.
