The importance of keeping perishables safe during transport
Have you ever considered throwing a third of your weekly shopping in the bin? No? Statistically however, that is exactly what happens. Food waste is a global problem. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that around 1.3 billion tonnes of food are thrown away every year. A considerable part of this already happens during transport: according to the FAO and the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), 14 % of the world’s food is lost or wasted after harvesting and before reaching the retail level.
During the entire transport, manufacturers and shippers are responsible for ensuring that food safety guidelines are met to preserve the food’s quality. This requires strong commitment and strict control at each stage of the transportation process. If the food arrives in a damaged condition, it will not only cost you a lot of money to replace and return the freight, but the customer’s dissatisfaction will also have an impact on your image as a business. Restoring faith and loyalty is hard work and can be highly expensive in the long run. Also, it is hard to prove who is responsible and liable for mistakes when cargo arrives in an unacceptable condition.
