Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules concerning storage and shipping. The most important reason is the possibility of products getting spoiled if stored and shipped incorrectly. The possible transport provider should abide by the rules of storage and transporting food so as to protect the load from rotting and thus getting damaged permanently. The transport provider also has to attain needed permissions confirming that he is qualified to securely ship food as well as has needed equipment. One of the main reasons food shipment has such strict rules is the diversity of the section – within “Food” section you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups needs individual storing and transporting environment, like certain temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to ship food have to keep the delivery date, because of the often short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they have to make sure that the food is secured properly and protected from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who wants to transport food products, ought to get needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Price of food shipping differs highly, since the category is very diverse. As it is with the most cargo, the cost of shipping is connected with the dimensions and weight of the load and route length and also whether the route crosses any borders. However with food transportation there is another price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires special conditions for the shipping. So if you have to ship a cargo that must be kept in particular temperature or humidity, it is best to be ready to pay more than you would for transporting for example pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
