Preparing Food for Transport

Unlike typical freight shipments, food and agriculture are often critical shipments that require a higher level of care and may be subject to legal or regulatory restrictions. For these types of shipments, communication with your carrier is especially important in order for it to arrive on time and in good condition.

Things to Know About Shipping Plants and Agriculture

Before preparing a shipment consider the pros and cons of transporting plants. Ensure that your plant is not restricted or under quarantine. Maintaining a proper climate for the duration of transit is also important and you’ll want to make sure you discuss these types of things with your service provider.

How to Ship Food and Beverage Products

It is especially important to maintain a proper environment when shipping food in order for it to arrive at its destination in good condition and in compliance with food safety guidelines. Shipping alcohol requires special care and is also heavily regulated. Reefer freight can be used for both food and alcohol shipments but it can also be utilized for any other kind of shipment that needs to be kept under refrigeration.

For all food and agricultural shipments, choosing a qualified service provider is important, as is determining what kind of insurance coverage may be available. Taking a moment to do your due diligence when it comes to research and properly preparing your shipment ensures that it will arrive on time and in good condition.
