Food transport

Food is one of the sections that has the most restrictive rules when it comes to storage and transporting. The main reason is the possibility of food getting spoiled when stored and transported incorrectly. The possible transport provider has to uphold the norm of storage and transporting food so as to protect the products from rotting and in consequence getting damaged irreversibly. The transport provider is also obliged to get necessary certifications stating that he is fitted to securely transport agriculture products as well as is in possession of crucial equipment. One of the main reasons food shipment has such restrictive norms is the diversity of the category – in “Food” category you will come across: meat, dairy, frozen products, animal products, liquids, cereals and many more. Most of these needs certain storing and transporting environment, e.g. specific temperature or humidity. Transport providers that are thinking of transporting food ought to keep the delivery date, due to the often short expiration dates of the cargo. Additionally they should ensure that the load is secured correctly and protected from weather conditions. Furthermore a transport provider who wants to ship food products, must acquire proper permissions from Food Standard Agency.

Cost of food transportation

Price of food shipping differs drastically, because the category is really varied. As it is with the majority of the cargo, the price of transport depends on the dimensions and weight of the load and route length as well as whether the route is international. But with food shipment there is one more price-defining factor: whether your load requires certain environment for the shipping. Therefore if you ought to ship a cargo that needs to be transported in specific temperature or humidity, it is best to be ready to pay more than you would for shipping e.g. pallets of comparable weight and dimensions.
