Shipping Perishables Successfully

It ain’t easy being green

Probably the biggest logistical nightmare is having to ship perishables across the nation, but someone has to do it. When it comes to shipping perishables, there are a lot of details that go into a successful shipment and as a vendor you need to be aware of these things or risk loss of perishables, which means loss of revenue. Shipping your perishables wrong can be a costly mistake for any business.

Making a list and checking it twice

What kinds of perishables are you shipping? Identify your product what it is that makes it perishable. What types of temperatures does your product need to survive the trip.

What types of environmental conditions will your goods endure? Think about how far your shipment is going, how long it will take and what sort of conditions your product will need to deal with along the way. Find solutions for every step of the way.

What transportation modes do you use? Will your product need to switch modes of transportation or is it staying on the same truck the whole way. Will it need to be stored along the way, or is it constantly in transit? These are all things to consider when you have a business that relies on shipping perishables.

Do your goods comply with government regulations? If your product needs to cross state lines, are you up to date with all the customs forms and federal rules and regulations for shipping perishables across state line?
