Keeping flour safe on its journey

We understand the importance of preserving the quality of your products. Thanks to our experience in food and dry cargo transportation, which is one of the most essential elements of trade, we provide a fast and safe service for your valuable products. We make sure that they are in safe hands throughout their journey, from the moment you book until the moment they reach the end customer.

How flour should
be shipped

Flour must be stowed in gunny bags – hessian or polypropylene sacks which are transported in food-grade containers. The main risk to the condition of flour is from dampness, which will cause flour to heat and ferment. So the container should be clean, dry, well ventilated and free of odour.

 

All of our food-grade containers are checked regularly throughout the shipping process by our highly trained team. This ensures the moisture content is regulated and the optimum condition of the flour maintained.
