Food transport

Food transport is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules concerning storage and transporting. The main reason is the danger of products getting spoiled when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider should keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to prevent the food from rotting and therefore getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider is also obliged to attain needed certifications confirming that he is qualified to safely ship food as well as is in possession of needed equipment. Among the main reasons food transport has such strict norms is the diversity of the category – in “Food” category you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these needs its own appropriate storing and transporting environment, for example precise 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 ensure that the load is secured well and protected from weather conditions. In addition a transport provider who wants to transport food products, must get proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food transportation

Price of food shipping differs drastically, since the section is really varied. Similarly to the most cargo, the cost of shipping depends on the dimensions and weight of the load as well as route length and also whether the route crosses any borders. Still with food shipment we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires special environment for the shipping. Therefore when you have to ship a cargo that has to be shipped in certain temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay higher price than you would while transporting e.g. furniture of comparable weight and dimensions.
