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 reason is the possibility of products getting spoiled if stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider must keep the norms of storage and shipping food so as to protect the load from spoiling and therefore getting damaged permanently. The transport provider also needs to have needed permissions declaring that he is able to safely ship agriculture products and has needed devices. One of the main reasons food transport has such restrictive standards is the diversity of the category – in “Food” section you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups needs certain storing and shipping environment, for example specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to transport food ought to keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the load. Additionally they must ensure that the cargo is secured well and shielded from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who is willing to ship food products, ought to acquire needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Price of food shipping fluctuates hugely, since the section is really varied. As it is with the most cargo, the cost of transport is connected with the dimensions and weight of the load and route length and also whether the route is international. Still with food shipment we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires specific environment for the transport. Therefore when you have to ship a load that ought to be kept in specific temperature or humidity, it’s best to be prepared to pay more than you would for shipping for example furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
