Food transport

Food is one of the sections that has the most detailed rules concerning storage and transporting. The main cause is the high risk of food getting rotten when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider has to keep the norms of storage and shipping food so as to protect the cargo from spoiling and therefore getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also ought to obtain essential permissions expressing that he is fitted to securely ship agriculture products as well as is in possession of necessary equipment. One of the reasons food transport has such restrictive standards is the diversity of the section – in “Food” category you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these requires individual storing and transporting conditions, for example specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of shipping food must keep the delivery date, due to the usually short expiration dates of the load. Additionally they have to ensure that the load is secured well and shielded from weather conditions. Furthermore a transport provider who is willing to ship food products, must get proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Price of food transportation fluctuates drastically, because the section is really diverse. Similarly to the most loads, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the load and route length and also whether the route is international. But with food transportation we can discern additional price-defining factor: whether your load requires specific conditions for the shipping. Consequently if you ought to ship a load that has to be kept in particular temperature or humidity, it’s best to be prepared to pay higher price than you would for transporting e.g. furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
