Food transport

Food transport is one of the categories that has the most restrictive standards concerning storage and shipping. The most important cause is the possibility of products getting spoiled when stored and shipped improperly. The possible transport provider must uphold the norm of storage and shipping food so as to keep the products from spoiling and thus getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also needs to obtain necessary permissions stating that he is able to securely transport agriculture products as well as is in possession of crucial equipment. One of the reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the diversity of the section – within “Food” section you will find: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many others. Most of these needs certain storing and transporting conditions, for example specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food must keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the load. Moreover they ought to make sure that the food is secured properly and protected from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who wants to transport food products, ought to get needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Price of food shipping differs hugely, since the category is very varied. As it is with the majority of the loads, the cost of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the cargo and route length and also whether the route is international. But with food transportation we can discern another price-defining factor: whether your load requires certain conditions for the transport. So when you need to transport a load that has to be kept in specific temperature or humidity, you should probably be prepared to pay higher price than you would while transporting for example pallets of similar weight and dimensions.
