Food transport

Food is one of the sections that has the most strict standards concerning storage and transporting. The most important reason is the high risk of products getting spoiled if stored and shipped improperly. The possible transport provider must keep the norms of storage and shipping food so as to protect the food from rotting and in consequence getting damaged permanently. The transport provider also has to attain needed permissions stating that he is able to safely transport food and is in possession of needed devices. One of the reasons food shipment has such strict standards is the diversity of the category – in “Food” category you will find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups needs certain storing and shipping conditions, for example specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of transporting food ought to keep the delivery date, because of the often short expiration dates of the load. Moreover they ought to ensure that the food is secured properly and protected from weather conditions. Furthermore a transport provider who wants to ship food products, has to acquire needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food shipping

Cost of food shipping fluctuates terribly, since the section is very varied. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the cost of shipping depends on the dimensions and weight of the load as well as route length as well as whether the route is international. However with food transportation we can discern one more price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires specific conditions for the transport. So if you have to transport a load that must be kept in certain temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay higher price than you would while shipping e.g. pallets of similar weight and dimensions.
