Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules when it comes to storage and transporting. The most important cause is the high risk of food getting spoiled when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider should keep the norms of storage and shipping food so as to keep the products from spoiling and thus getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also needs to get essential certifications confirming that he is able to securely transport agriculture products as well as has crucial devices. One of the reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the variety of the section – in “Food” category you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Each of this special groups needs certain storing and transporting environment, e.g. precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food ought to keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the load. Moreover they have to make sure that the cargo is secured well and protected from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who is willing to transport food products, should get needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Cost of food shipping varies highly, because the category is quite varied. As it is with the majority of the loads, 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 there is additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires certain conditions for the shipping. Therefore when you have to transport a cargo that has to be kept in specific temperature or humidity, you should probably be ready to pay higher price than you would while shipping for example furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
