Transporting

WHAT'S COOL CARGO?


When transporting sensitive merchandises, temperature sensitive items  such as pharmaceutical products, biotechnology-related products, medical treatment products, chemical substances as well as perishable items are required in temperature control cargo. 


Fresh produce arriving in expected temperature range with proper circulation can ensure freshness and therefore maintain exceptional product quality. Temperature sensitive cargo reserves the unbroken cool chains as cool is the solution where customers can ensure the set temperature ranges are manageable. As a result, temperature sensitive items can safely arrive in top conditions.



Most importers and exporters are concerned about their shipments experiencing heat exposure while waiting to be loaded to the aircraft or unloaded off the aircraft, which the temperature could increase up to 50 degree celsius. Opposite to general cargo, perishable products in cool cargo , when moving to the aircraft, have less time to be exposed to outside weather conditions. To avoid severe heat exposure outside, cool cargo bring advantages to fresh produce as perishables will be moved to the aircraft stand later, which could be as closed as 30 minutes prior to departure time. Moving perishables to the aircraft closed to the taking off time minimizes time period when perishable items have to stand in the heat.


Some airlines, such as Finnair, the temperature of its cargo is thoroughly monitored  throughout the destination, from departure to flight transits. This can preserve the freshness of perishable items. As importers, for freshness and quality retention purposes, it is wise to find out with your exporters about cool cargo solution.
