Food transport

Food is one of the sections that has the most strict standards when it comes to storage and transporting. The main reason is the high risk of products getting rotten if stored and transported incorrectly. The possible transport provider has to uphold the norm of storage and shipping food so as to prevent the products from rotting and thus getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also ought to have essential certifications expressing that he is able to safely ship food as well as is in possession of crucial devices. One of the main reasons food shipment has such strict standards is the diversity of the category – in “Food” category you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many more. Each of this special groups needs certain storing and shipping environment, like specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food ought to keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they ought to ensure that the cargo is secured well and shielded from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who wants to ship food products, must get proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food shipping

Cost of food shipping varies highly, because the category is quite diverse. Similarly to the majority of the cargo, the price of transport is connected with the dimensions and weight of the cargo as well as route length and also whether the route is international. But with food shipment we can discern another price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific conditions for the transport. So when you need to ship a cargo that has to be shipped in certain temperature or humidity, it is best to be prepared to pay higher price than you would while shipping for example pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
