Things to remember when shipping frozen products overseas
When transporting frozen products, it is crucial that cargo inside the container forms a solid block without spaces between boxes and the walls of the unit. This allows air to freely circulate evenly around the load maintaining a steady temperature for your goods.
Important factors to consider when transporting frozen products are:
- The cargo must be pre-frozen to the correct temperature.
- Maximum load height should never exceed the red load line of the container.
- Ventilation of the container must always remain closed and humidity off.
- Packaging must be able to resist moisture and allow for a vertical flow through boxes to maintain the desired temperature.
