What items require temperature-controlled transportation?

Items that require cold chain or temperature-controlled transportation are typically perishable or sensitive to temperature variations. Cold chain shipping, facilitated by refrigerated or reefer containers, maintains specific temperatures crucial for preserving the quality and integrity of temperature-sensitive goods during transit. These goods include:

Food Products: Fresh produce, meat, fish, dairy products, and frozen goods require temperature-controlled transport to maintain quality and prevent spoilage.

Pharmaceuticals: Vaccines, insulin, and various medications are sensitive to temperature fluctuations and require specific temperature control during transport to ensure their efficacy.

Chemicals and Hazardous Materials: Certain chemicals, including some industrial substances, require temperature-controlled transport for stability and safety. See our Hazardous Materials page for more information on our hazmat shipment services.

Floral and Horticultural Products: Flowers, plants, and other horticultural products are often transported in controlled temperature conditions to prolong their shelf life.

Cosmetics and Personal Care Products: Certain skincare and beauty products, like specific lotions, require controlled temperatures for property preservation during transport.

Beverages: Certain beverages, like wine or certain types of juices, require temperature-controlled shipping to preserve their taste and quality.

Film and Photographic Equipment: Some sensitive photographic equipment and film require specific temperature conditions during transport to avoid damage or deterioration.
