Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most strict standards concerning storage and transporting. The main cause is the high risk of food getting spoiled when stored and shipped improperly. The possible transport provider must keep the standards of storage and shipping food so as to keep the cargo from rotting and therefore getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also needs to attain essential permissions confirming that he is qualified to safely transport agriculture products and is in possession of necessary equipment. One of the reasons food shipment has such strict rules is the diversity of the section – within “Food” category you will find: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many more. Each of this special groups needs its own appropriate storing and transporting conditions, e.g. precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of transporting food must keep the delivery date, due to the usually short expiration dates of the load. Moreover they should ensure that the cargo is secured correctly and shielded from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who wants to transport food products, has to obtain proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food transportation

Cost of food shipping varies hugely, since the section is very diverse. As it is with the majority of the loads, the price of shipping is connected with 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 one more price-defining factor: whether your load requires special conditions for the shipping. Therefore if you need to transport a load that must be shipped in particular temperature or humidity, it’s best to be ready to pay higher price than you would while transporting e.g. pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
