Notes on transporting frozen goods

Transporting frozen goods always requires strict temperature supervision from the producer to the consumer. One of the required conditions when transporting frozen goods is to use a self-recorded thermometer throughout the journey to monitor and monitor the refrigerated vehicle's temperature and the quality of the product.

Record the temperature

The thermometer automatically records the temperature during the transport. These devices must be pre-installed with information including: Number of trips; number of containers; threshold temperature warning; Destination; sampling time, maximum recording time.

These data loggers can track both the air temperature and the temperature of the cargo in the colder container, and the data is stored in electronic memory, which is checked by the receiver against the data. this.

Packing in container

Correct handling and packaging is especially important for the handling of cold containers. However, this is often out of the carrier's control. The carrier only accepts the package when it has been sealed, leaded and told that the product has passed the label.
Cargo should never be stacked on top of a red line in a container to allow continuous airflow from the front to enter. The ideal stacking type is the stacking type that allows the supplied air to move freely while maintaining the stability of the cargo. Sufficient space should be provided above and below the load so that the air can circulate freely.

The freezing process is very simple provided they are packed into the correct container at the specified cruise setting temperature. This can be done by packing the cargo into a solid block, without the need to arrange space between the cargo block and the container wall. When transporting frozen goods, always close the vent valve.

It is important to ensure that the stowage block covers the container floor area facing behind the floor limit edges of the "T" bar to avoid disruptions and increase efficiency of airflow. In large containers, if the amount of cargo is not enough to cover the floor, they must be loaded at the same height. Since container stacking plays an important role in maintaining the quality and safety of your goods in transit, in the event of doubt when you receive your order, you should consult a specialist. .

Check the goods

In many cases, there are regulations that allow the carrier to open a sealed container to avoid the possibility of additional losses. The method of inspection depends on the type of goods and in most cases requires the assistance of a specialist.

The surface temperature of chilled fruit, fresh vegetables and the center of frozen goods should be measured regularly. Where possible, this should be done prior to loading into reefer containers. Fresh fruits and vegetables also need to be checked before they are refrigerated (for mold, withered, dehydrated, wrinkled, discolored, torn or peeled, bruised, damaged by cold or taste contamination).

Frozen goods should be tested for dehydration, dried, for water penetration, for black streaks, change in color and flavor, and checked for an increase in the temperature of the cargo, then re-cooled. or not. Cardboard boxes, trays and packages must be carefully considered for their ability and suitability for cargo protection functions during long cruises.

In the event of an erratic operation of a chiller of a container, the person in charge on board must notify the vessel owner or agent at the expected port of call to make necessary onshore preparations to correct the malfunction. if it is not possible to overcome it while traveling at sea.

In such situations an inspector should be assigned to board the vessel when the vessel arrives to check and prepare a inspection report of the condition of the cargo and containers. If a container is mechanically damaged, the dealer or inspector must make sure that all necessary steps will be taken to repair or repair immediately to minimize possible cargo loss. after that.
