Food transport

Food is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules concerning storage and transporting. The main cause is the possibility of products getting spoiled if stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider has to uphold the standards of storage and shipping food so as to protect the food from spoiling and in consequence getting damaged permanently. The transport provider is also obliged to obtain essential permissions stating that he is able to securely transport food and is in possession of needed devices. One of the main reasons food shipment has such strict standards is the diversity of the section – in “Food” section you will come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these needs individual storing and transporting environment, for example precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food have to keep the delivery date, because of the often short expiration dates of the load. Additionally they should guarantee that the cargo is secured correctly and shielded from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who is willing to ship food products, must get needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Cost of food shipping differs drastically, since the section is quite varied. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the cost of transport is connected with the dimensions and weight of the load and route length and also whether the route crosses any borders. Still with food shipment we can discern one more price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires specific environment for the transport. Consequently if you need to ship a load that must be shipped in certain temperature or humidity, it’s best to be ready to pay more than you would for transporting e.g. furniture of comparable weight and dimensions.
