How to ship frozen food overnight

Frozen food can be one of the trickiest products to ship, opening up the possibility for costly mistakes. 4 Tips for Maintaining Product Integrity at the End of Shipping.

1.Pre-Cool The Product

Pre-cooling is any cooling of the product that happens before shipping begins. Why pre-cool? When produce is harvested from the fields, it retains heat from the sun. Pre-cooling, which should happen as soon as possible after harvest, removes field heat and helps fruits and veggies maintain a fresh appearance, prevent decay and extend market life.

2.Correct Thermal Packaging

Insulated Packaging is the basic line of defence for frozen food,so you want to make sure the packaging not only keeps your product cold but also protects it from being damaged.

If the packaging for your most inner layer is not waterproof or lined with waterproof sheets, you could end up with a leaky parcel. Your frozen product could leak or seep through and damage the rest of your wrapping. You also want your packaging around the product to have an airtight seal when you’re shipping frozen food. This airtight seal will help prevent any heat or humidity from affecting your product. As an extra precaution,the inner layer needs to be shock-absorbing and cushioning to prevent damage to the food.

Using a non-insulated container is a fast way to have your product lose heat and spoil. Make sure you use sturdy insulated foam containers or insulated box liner to help keep your frozen food cold during the shipping process.

3.Know The Proper Shipping Conditions For Your Products

During shipping, each product will have its own requirements for temperature and humidity. Knowing the ranges (and ensuring products stay within them between origin and destination) is key to their safe arrival.

Not every fresh or frozen product will need to be temperature controlled at origin – some sheds are open and exposed to the elements, and that’s okay for certain products. But, especially if you’re shipping to a warm climate — and especially if you’re shipping something like cheese or frozen foods — you’ll want to make sure the destination and transport process is temperature controlled to maintain the integrity of your product at the end of its journey.

4.Avoid Freezing And Chilling Injury

Even though we think of cooling when it comes to shipping food, it’s also important to avoid freezing and chilling injury, which happens to products when outside temperatures are lower than 32 degrees F. For instance, freezing can cause meat to darken, eggs to crack and cheeses to change texture. In these situations, products may need to be warmed rather than cooled.
