Freight temperature sensitivity
- We at Al Mujarad pull out all the stops to make sure we run an efficient network that’s also cost-effective. Temperature stability, speed and/or security requirements constantly plays truant with different items during the networking process. Hence, identifying critical shipping needs is the first step taken in this direction. Distinguishing perishable items from those that are not is another factor undertaken. Less sensitive items may be handled using standard shipping options deeming this to be more practical, while a well-tailored logistics approach is strictly recommended for high-end items.
Refrigerated freight packaging
- Now, it is critical to maintain temperature stability for every product right through the networking process from departure to destination, which is why it is pertinent to address temperature guidelines with your carrier. This will safeguard your products knowing that proper parameters are in place, such as acceptable temperature range in degrees plus or minus the set point, or if Fahrenheit or Celsius is being used.
- Securing highly temperature-sensitive items is neither a problem with our temperature-controlled docks in place. These docks improve product quality by keeping the freight in a temperature-controlled environment until the consignment is ready to move. Drivers are best advised to keep the doors shut at all times until the final moment thereby maintaining the cold chain continuity, guaranteeing the quality of the product to the satisfaction of the client.
The best packaging fit
- It is advisable to cool temperature-sensitive items using gel coolants and dry ice. Gel coolants are indeed preferable over wet ice, as wet ice is heavier and has the potential to leak during the transit process. A bit of advice would be to freeze coolants, products and the insulated container (if possible) prior to packaging.
- If dry ice is your material of preference to keep the temperature in check, then there are certain requirements of the IATA that you must be aware of before you proceed. You will be required to provide correct identification, classification, markings and labeling on outer packaging. Dry ice is considered a hazardous material during air transport and requires special handling.
- Frozen items to be shipped must be strictly bound by material like pads, cellulose wadding or paper towels etc. to absorb any liquids that is likely to surface from the package.
