Refrigerated transport is essential for delivering temperature-sensitive products safely, and refrigerated products no longer include only food. Properly maintaining a refrigeration unit is the key to delivering an undamaged product whether it is perishable food, sensitive electronic equipment or medical supplies.
Carrying refrigerated cargo can be especially dangerous because if the trailer’s temperature gets too high or dips too low, entire loads of product could be ruined, or worse, could make people sick. Bacteria can grow on perishable items if the temperature gets above 7C.
Use these tips to make sure your cargo reaches its destination safely and efficiently.
Don’t Break the ‘Cold Chain’
Food products need to stay refrigerated from start to finish. When foods are removed from a cold environment and reach a temperature that promotes microbial growth, these bacteria cannot be removed simply by returning the food to its proper temperature.
