Food transport

Food shipment is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules concerning storage and shipping. The main cause is the possibility of food getting rotten if stored and transported improperly. The possible transport provider has to uphold the norm of storage and transporting food so as to protect the products from spoiling and in consequence getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider also ought to get necessary certifications confirming that he is fitted to securely ship agriculture products and has needed equipment. One of the main reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the variety of the category – within “Food” category you may come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many others. Most of these requires its own appropriate storing and shipping 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 cargo. Additionally they should guarantee that the load is secured properly and shielded from weather conditions. Furthermore a transport provider who wants to ship food products, ought to acquire needed permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food shipping

Cost of food transportation fluctuates hugely, since the section is very varied.

Therefore if you need to ship a load that has to be transported in particular temperature or humidity, you should probably be prepared to pay more than you would for shipping for example furniture of comparable weight and dimensions.
