Food transport

Food transport is one of the sections that has the most restrictive standards concerning storage and transporting. The main cause is the possibility of food getting spoiled when stored and shipped improperly. The possible transport provider has to keep the standards of storage and shipping food so as to keep the food from rotting and thus getting damaged permanently. The transport provider is also obliged to obtain needed certifications declaring that he is fitted to securely transport food and is in possession of needed devices. One of the main reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the diversity of the section – in “Food” category you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups needs its own special storing and shipping conditions, e.g. particular temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food ought to keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they ought to ensure that the load is secured properly and shielded from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who is willing to transport food products, ought to acquire proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Price of food transportation differs highly, because the section is quite diverse. Similarly to the majority of the cargo, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the cargo as well as route length as well as whether the route is international. Still with food shipment there is additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires special environment for the transport. Therefore if you have to ship a load that ought to be transported in particular temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay more than you would while transporting for example pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
