Food transport

Food transport is one of the categories that has the most strict rules when it comes to storage and shipping. The most important cause is the high risk of food getting rotten when stored and transported incorrectly. The possible transport provider ought to keep the standards of storage and transporting food so as to keep the products from rotting and therefore getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also has to have necessary certifications declaring that he is fitted to securely ship food as well as has crucial equipment. One of the main reasons food transport has such strict norms is the diversity of the category – within “Food” category you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups needs certain storing and transporting conditions, e.g. precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food have to keep the delivery date, because of the often short expiration dates of the load. They also should ensure that the load is secured properly and protected from weather conditions. Furthermore 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 cargo, the cost of transport is connected with the dimensions and weight of the cargo and route length and also whether the route crosses any borders. However with food transportation we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific environment for the shipping. So if you have to ship a load that must be transported in particular temperature or humidity, it is best to be prepared to pay more than you would for shipping for example pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
