Food transport

Food shipment is one of the categories that has the most strict rules concerning storage and transporting. The most important cause is the high risk of food getting rotten if stored and shipped incorrectly. The possible transport provider has to keep the norms of storage and shipping food so as to keep the products from rotting and therefore getting damaged permanently. The transport provider also ought to obtain necessary certifications stating that he is qualified to safely ship food and has crucial equipment. Among the main reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the variety of the section – within “Food” section you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Each of this special groups requires its own special storing and shipping environment, for example particular temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to transport food must keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the cargo. They also ought to guarantee that the cargo is secured well and protected from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who is willing to transport food products, must acquire needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Cost of food shipping differs terribly, because the section is very diverse. Similarly to the majority of the cargo, the price of shipping depends on the dimensions and weight of the load as well as route length and also whether the route crosses any borders. But with food shipment there is additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific environment for the transport. Consequently if you have to transport a load that needs to be transported in specific temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay more than you would for shipping for example furniture of comparable weight and dimensions.
