Food transport

Food shipment is one of the categories that has the most restrictive standards concerning storage and shipping. The main cause is the danger of food getting spoiled when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider should keep the standards of storage and transporting food so as to keep the products from spoiling and in consequence getting damaged permanently. The transport provider is also required to get essential certifications confirming that he is able to safely transport food as well as is in possession of needed equipment. One of the main reasons food transport has such restrictive norms is the diversity of the section – in “Food” section you will find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many more. Each of this special groups needs its own special storing and transporting conditions, for example precise temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to ship food have to keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the cargo. They also must guarantee that the food is secured properly and protected from weather conditions. Furthermore a transport provider who is willing to ship food products, must obtain proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food transportation

Cost of food transportation varies highly, since the category is very varied. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the cargo as well as route length and also whether the route is international. However with food transportation there is additional price-defining factor: whether your cargo requires special conditions for the transport. So when you have to ship a load that ought to be shipped in specific temperature or humidity, you should probably be prepared to pay more than you would for transporting e.g. furniture of similar weight and dimensions.
