Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most strict standards when it comes to storage and transporting. The most important reason is the high risk of products getting spoiled when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider should keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to protect the load from spoiling and thus getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also needs to obtain needed certifications confirming that he is qualified to securely transport food and is in possession of necessary equipment. One of the main reasons food transport has such restrictive norms is the variety of the category – within “Food” section you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many others. Most of these requires its own appropriate storing and shipping conditions, for example precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to transport food must keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they must make sure that the food is secured well and protected from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who wants to transport food products, ought to get proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Cost of food transportation differs drastically, since the section is really diverse. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the load as well as route length as well as whether the route crosses any borders. However with food shipment there is additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific conditions for the shipping. Consequently when you have to ship a load that has to be kept in specific temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay higher price than you would for transporting e.g. pallets of similar weight and dimensions.
