Perishable Cargo

Perishable Cargo refers to goods whose quality and freshness deteriorate over time. This is mainly affected by temperature and humidity changes. Due to this they require utmost care and speed to ensure the goods arrive as fresh as possible. Types include the below:

Meat

Fresh meat of all kinds requires great attention to handling. Lack of proper temperature control along the whole process as well as packaging can substantially reduce the shelf life of items.

Proper cold chain management ensures nutritional value remains the same throughout the transit process.

Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs

Individuals around the world love to have fruits and vegetables available any time regardless of whether they are available in the locality or in season. It goes without saying that fruits need to be ripe while at the same time unspoiled. Studies have shown that 80% of fruits and vegetables loss happens during the transportation process.

The intricate process to control freshness involves ensuring the storage, documentation, transportation, handling and packaging process is closely monitored to ensure effectiveness and timeliness.
