Food and beverage logistics need to be handled by food delivery truck companies with high-caliber service and the ability to meet delivery deadlines. If food shipments don't happen in line with both of these criteria, things go to waste. Reefer trailers are the frequent answer of food shipping companies to keep freight from spoiling by maintaining the right temperature. A lot of food shipping also happens without temperature control.

Food shipping questions are pretty common. Here are some food shipment concerns you might have plus their answers:

What does the food and beverage shipping cost?

Food and beverage trucking companies base their prices on some different factors. In the United States, there are three primary factors involved with pricing food and beverage logistics.

The first is how much food you're shipping. Freight typically starts at a minimum of 150 lbs. LTL trucking services are likely to factor in both volume and weight.

The kind of food you ship also matters. Frozen and fresh foods usually cost more than dry goods. That's because of the extra logistics involved.

The distance you need your food shipped is the final factor. Local runs are cheaper than long-distance freight, especially as longer journeys might get logistically complex with multiple carriers involved.

How to pack food for shipping?

If your food needs refrigeration, then make sure that's arranged. In all cases, make sure that your food is sealed really well. Second, pack the food in sturdy containers. Perishable food will need insulation, proper labeling, and possibly double-packaging.
