Food transport

Food is one of the categories that has the most detailed standards concerning storage and transporting. The most important cause is the possibility of products getting spoiled if stored and shipped incorrectly. The possible transport provider should keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to prevent the load from rotting and in consequence getting damaged permanently. The transport provider is also obliged to attain necessary permissions declaring that he is fitted to securely ship agriculture products and is in possession of crucial devices. One of the main reasons food shipment has such strict rules is the diversity of the section – in “Food” section you will come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these requires certain storing and shipping conditions, e.g. precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to transport food have to keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the load. Moreover they should make sure that the load is secured well and shielded from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who wants to ship food products, ought to acquire proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Price of food transportation varies highly, because the category is really diverse. Similarly to the most loads, the cost of shipping is connected with the dimensions and weight of the load as well as route length as well as whether the route is international. However with food transportation there is one more price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires special conditions for the shipping. So if you have to ship a load that needs to be shipped in particular temperature or humidity, it is best to be prepared to pay higher price than you would while shipping for example furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
