Perishable Shipping Tips Used By The Pros

Perishable Shipping Tips Used By The Pros

DATE: 03/23/12

Perishable shipments are among the most delicate types of shipments. Perishable items are items that are prone to spoiling if they aren’t kept cool. This includes things like meat, fish, flowers, and pharmaceuticals, to name just a few. As a shipper, you play a large role in determining if your perishables will reach their destination in good condition. Here are some perishable shipping tips the pros use to get their cargo delivered safely and without spoiling.

  • Make sure you choose a perishable shipping company with true expertise—Many shipping companies lack the knowledge or experience to properly handle perishable shipments. That’s why it’s important that you properly vet your shipping company and make certain they are true perishable shipping experts with the knowledge and equipment to properly handle your shipments.
  • Pack your shipment with care—Make sure you take the time to pack your perishables correctly. For frozen items, include dry ice in the package. For refrigerated goods, pack them with frozen gel packs to keep them cool.
  • Choose the fastest transit times—The faster your shipment gets delivered, the less chance it has of spoiling. Always try to find the fastest delivery times available.
