Shipping Perishables Safely During the Holidays

Shipping Perishables Safely During the Holidays

DATE: 12/28/12

During the holidays, a lot of people like to ship baked goods, sweets, and other tasty treats to their loved ones across the world. There’s just something about being able to share the tastes of home with your loved ones that makes everyone feel close during the holidays, even when you live thousands of miles apart. Of course, shipping perishables safely is a delicate task. You can’t just toss some cookies in a box and hope they reach their destination without melting or crumbling. You have to package perishables very carefully so they arrive fresh and safely.

  • Choose an experienced perishable shipping company—Make sure you work with a shipping company that has been handling perishable shipments of all types for years. The best shipping companies will have chilled storage at their transit points to keep perishables safe.
  • Pack items in an insulated shipping container—There are special shipping containers made for transporting perishable goods. Use an insulated shipping container to help keep your tasty treats nice and cool on their journey.
  • Use dry ice if possible—Dry ice can help keep your product cold until it reaches its destination, but there are some regulations about using dry ice in your shipments. Check with your shipping company for more information.
