Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most detailed rules concerning storage and shipping. The main cause is the high risk of products getting spoiled when stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider ought to keep the norms of storage and transporting food so as to prevent the cargo from spoiling and therefore getting damaged permanently. The transport provider also has to have needed certifications confirming that he is qualified to safely transport agriculture products as well as has needed devices. One of the reasons food transport has such strict norms is the variety of the section – in “Food” category you may find: meat, dairy, frozen products, vegetable products, liquids, cereals and many others. Each of this special groups requires certain storing and transporting environment, like particular temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are willing to ship food ought to keep the delivery date, because of the usually short expiration dates of the cargo. Moreover they have to ensure that the food is secured properly and shielded from weather conditions. Also a transport provider who is willing to ship food products, ought to acquire needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Price of food transportation

Price of food shipping varies highly, since the category is very diverse. Similarly to the most cargo, the price 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 transportation there is another price-defining factor: whether your load requires special conditions for the shipping. So if you ought to ship a load that has to be shipped in specific temperature or humidity, it’s best to be ready to pay more than you would for transporting e.g. pallets of similar weight and dimensions.
