Accredited companies have well-trained drivers who are knowledgeable about the routes and have the ability to deliver the goods on time, keeping strictly to the planned delivery schedules.

An ultra-modern fleet of trucks of various sizes, all fitted with the latest tracking technology, guarantees that temperatures can be monitored 24/7 during the transportation period. Fleets consists of a variety of trailers, which ranges from standard and mega curtain-sided to refrigerated box trailers, for the transportation of chilled, frozen and ambient products.

Reputable companies always have state-of-the-art tracking devices installed in all vehicles to guarantee that products are not compromised during transit. It protects the company’s most valuable assets, namely the drivers and assistants from possible hijackings as well. Cargo is tracked from collection to delivery using a reliable systems and the latest technology. These tracking devices gives sufficient warning if the cold chain is compromised, and therefore affords staff enough time to rectify matters.

Temperature controlled vehicles ensures that cargo is kept at optimum temperatures as required by the manufacturer during the transit process. By controlling warm air, the cooling performance of the truck will be optimised.

Cold chain management is an important cog in the machine regarding the distribution of frozen and chilled goods in the UK and across Europe. Haulage companies should have a thorough understanding of the stock being transported, and what should be done not to compromise the integrity of the products during the transportation process. Frozen loads should be carefully managed to prevent the occurrence of financial losses.

Temperatures are monitored according to industry related standards, and controlled from the loading bay to the final destination, and this process should be controlled meticulously.

The cold chain manager has an extremely vital role to play, from the pick point to the delivery of the products at their final destination, that the temperature should be controlled, that products should be transported at correct temperatures as indicated by the suppliers, without any disruption or upward or downward spikes. By maintaining the integrity of frozen products, will ensure longevity and extended shelf life of the products in question.

When frozen products reach their final destination, it is imperative to ensure that the cold chain is maintained during the delivery or offloading process, as well as the time when the product is taken to the storage facility. Industry documentation is available regarding the periods involved during this process, and should be strictly adhered to.

Regulated and managed temperatures is a continuous process during transportation and warehousing and every team member should be fully aware of the importance of maintaining the process, as well as the consequences of the failure.

Tracking devices can record temperatures of products and send it to a centralised control room. Customers will also be able to track their cargo via login access, to determine the progress of the delivery.

During the transportation of frozen goods, temperatures should always be below -18°C or even less, at all times. Although that is the minimum prescribed temperature, there are exceptions to the rule, depending on the products. Ice Cream and ice should be kept at -25°C, deep-frozen foods and fish products at -18°C, whereas butter and edible fats should be kept at -14°C, and egg products, offal, rabbit, poultry and game can tolerate transport temperatures of
-12°C. These are rough guidelines, but an experienced transporter will be well informed about the correct procedures and temperatures.

Haulage companies transport frozen and ambient cargo in the same truck by making use of dual evaporators, providing separate temperature controls for the front and rear compartments of the truck body. The truck body is divided by an insulated partition, skirt or movable bulkhead, between the refrigerated and freezer units. This provides more options for flexibility of deliveries and optimisation of time and space.
