Food transport

Food transport is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules when it comes to storage and transporting. The most important cause is the danger of food getting spoiled when stored and shipped improperly. The possible transport provider has to keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to keep the food from rotting and therefore getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider is also required to attain essential permissions stating that he is qualified to securely transport agriculture products as well as has needed devices. One of the reasons food transport has such strict rules is the variety of the section – within “Food” section you will come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many others. Most of these requires its own special storing and transporting conditions, for example particular temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to transport food ought to keep the delivery date, due to the usually short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they have to guarantee that the cargo is secured properly and protected 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

Price of food shipping varies hugely, since the category is very varied. Similarly to the most loads, the cost of shipping depends on the dimensions and weight of the load and route length as well as whether the route is international. But with food transportation we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires certain conditions for the shipping. Consequently if you have to transport a load that has to be shipped in particular temperature or humidity, you should probably be prepared to pay more than you would for shipping e.g. furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
