Food transport

Food is one of the categories that has the most restrictive rules when it comes to storage and shipping. The most important cause is the high risk of products getting rotten if stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider has to keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to protect the cargo from spoiling and thus getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also needs to attain needed certifications expressing that he is able to securely transport food as well as is in possession of crucial devices. One of the main reasons food transport has such strict standards is the variety of the section – in “Food” category you will find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these requires its own appropriate storing and shipping environment, like precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food have to keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the load. They also should ensure that the load is secured properly and shielded from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who is willing to transport food products, should get proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Price of food shipping varies highly, since the category is really varied. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the cargo as well as route length and also whether the route is international. Still with food transportation we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific environment for the transport. Therefore if you need to ship a cargo that must be transported in specific temperature or humidity, it’s best to be prepared to pay higher price than you would while shipping for example furniture of comparable weight and dimensions.
