December is a peak shipping season, but the changing temperatures present unique challenges with many products requiring special handling and storage during transport. Deliverability extends beyond scheduling for temperature-sensitive holiday staples like perishable products, candles and adhesives.

When shipping your products domestically through the US and Canada, imagine being able ONLY to transport your fragile cargo in a Conestoga wagon. A horse-, oxen- or mule-drawn wagon used extensively in early pioneer days, it could transport loads of up to six tons. It could get your load safely to its end destination. However, it could NOT preserve fragile goods from temperature changes! When it comes to transporting goods nowadays, thank goodness business has available to it temperature controlled shipping!

Temperature Controlled Shipping Respects Fragile Shipment Requirements

What kind of products do you sell? By prioritizing the climate sensitivity needs of your products, you preserve their sale value using temperature controlled shipping methods. What exactly does that mean?

Suppose you sell milk and dairy products. You arrange for your goods to be transported over a lot of miles. The shipping route through which they travel could affect the value and safety of your food products if they need to move through temperature extremes. When these temperature extremes could jeopardize food safety, it is better to ship them using temperature controlled shipping. That way, their food temperature stays within appropriate conditions.

Commercially transported products are not like running to the corner market, getting a pound of hamburger and letting it sit in your car as you drive back home. In that situation, you could probably safely put your meat in a freezer bag and the meat would be suitable for your dinner that night. Larger amounts of climate-sensitive products need to be handled correctly. That’s why you want to use temperature controlled shipping. It can make a big difference in the relationship you develop with your market, the freshness of your products and in sustaining your business’ good reputation for selling quality goods.
