How to ship perishable products, food overseas

 

Any Pharma/food retailer will agree: it's one thing to ship spare parts or books, but quite another to ship butter or chilled Vegetables and dairy products. A lot can go wrong with shipping, mailing perishable goods, products or items, which requires manufacturers and retailers to give extra thought to chilled shipping customers, carrier services and more. The good news is that once you've sorted through your setup, these operations need be no more troublesome than shipping any other products. Here are five steps to take to make sure your perishable goods, products arrive safely:

Check Shipping Regulations, Customs Requirements

 

 

Subject to Local arrival customs formalities in the arrival country the receiver may require an import licence or a food governing body permit check before you send; you send artisan sausages to Singapore? Can you mail gourmet ice cream to China? Milk to Qatar, Making an assumption about international customs can be a costly mistake. Australia, for example, doesn't allow the import of meat products (including dried, salted and smoked meats), seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables (including foods such as granola with dried apricots) and all dairy and eggs. Even a cake mix that contains 10 per cent or more of dried milk or a powdered egg will be rejected for import. So your first step, if you plan to offer international shipping, is to check the shipping customs in each country where you hope to ship. If your food products seem to be fine to mail, you might still be required to obtain a special import license for mailing perishable foods into the country.

 

 

Invest in the Right Packaging

 

 

All perishable foods—even items such as smoked or cured fish should arrive at the recipient at or around +2 to + 8 degrees Celsius don't simply think your box will arrive chilled without any cooling agent in the box. your box will be at room temperature for transport this can vary subject to your destination. It might be pending delivery on a hot delivery truck for hours or get sorted in a warm sorting facility. To achieve that level of cool, cold, you'll need to invest in foam, Thermo or heavy corrugated cardboard for shipping containers, cartons and then use a cold source, such as dry ice or frozen gel packs, to keep the container's contents cool.

Dry Ice Shipping / Gel Packs

 

 

Packaging Guide when sending chilled or frozen samples

 

 

To ensure your food samples arrive promptly and without any damage, here are some basic and simple packaging rules you can follow:-

 

 

  • Whenever you send a frozen or chilled sample food or Pharma, especially one containing fragile items, it is best to use a polystyrene box with secure closure, with Frozen or Chilled Ice or Gel pack in a new double-corrugated cardboard box for the outer packaging.

  • Wrap each item individually in bubble-wrap and fill any remaining space left in the box with left-over bubble wrap, newspaper or foam.

  • Seal the box with plenty of packaging tape and secure all flaps and seams with layer of Packaging tape.

  • Clearly display the packaging labels and make sure each item is clearly listed on the shipping invoice. This will avoid your goods being delayed at customs.

 

The main perk of dry ice is it keeps a package dry, while gel packs tend to sweat as they thaw. If your perishable product is sold in cardboard or another paper-based packaging, for instance, a gel pack can easily moisten or destroy the internal packaging. Yet dry ice isn't always the clear-cut winner, because there are restrictions on the amount of dry ice that can be shipped by air. Talk to cool cargo to figure out which cooling component will work for your deliveries.

 

 

Label the Package Appropriately

 

 

It's not enough that the customer knows you're sending food. Your shipping partner needs to know as well, so the box doesn't languish in a hot warehouse for hours on end. To help avoid that, label the package with "Food content, handle with care" and "keep refrigerated" or "keep frozen." If you're using dry ice as a cooling agent, it's important that you include this info prominently on the package to avoid anyone getting a dry-ice burn. "Contains dry ice" is a common shipping sticker you can find and apply to all packages.


Proper labelling is key for mailing, shipping chilled packages. Proper labelling is the key for cool packages.

 

 

Right Time for shipping

 

 

Nothing is more frustrating than realizing your box of perishable food is stuck in a shipping warehouse for the weekend. To avoid that messy—and costly—mistake, check with us at Cool Cargo and your receiver, research shipping options best fits your requirements. Don't Just Ship it and hope for the best.

 

Small properly packed shipping items on overnight are generally the safest way to guarantee perishable food arrives in good shape, but that still means avoiding a Friday unless urgently required some carriers don't operate over the weekend or charge more for Saturday delivery. If you mail, shipping things with two-day delivery, you'll want to be even more certain you understand how this will impact Thursday or Friday shipments.
