Transporting potatoes, vegetables and fruit nationally and internationally
Fruit and vegetables are very sensitive to the following external factors: temperature changes, too high temperatures, moisture and too much light. With the right packaging solution you can protect potatoes, vegetables and fruit against this. At Coolpack we offer proven solutions to ensure the quality of fresh produce products during the entire transport period. We offer solutions for transport with and without return procedure.
Go for optimal quality retention of fruit and vegetable products
For fresh produce, the quality is best preserved when they are transported within a temperature range of 0 to 8 degrees. Stability in the temperature range is of great importance. Furthermore, the space in which the goods are transported should preferably be dry and dark to prevent the formation of mold. Gel packs or gel pack strings offer an excellent solution for transporting goods within a temperature range of 0 to 8 degrees. Gel packs are extremely suitable for cooling goods for transport up to 48 hours (depending on external conditions).
It is recommended to use the No sweat gel packs to avoid surface condensation during transport. These gel packs are a good option for moisture-sensitive products such as fruit and vegetable products, because the products themselves remain as dry as possible during transport. Fruit and vegetables are often transported on Euro or block pallets. To achieve temperature stability and to keep the goods cool for a while, the means can be combined with pallet covers. In this way a kind of origin is formed, as it were. This protects the vulnerable products against external influences during transport.
Are you also going for optimal quality preservation of fresh food? We are happy to help you realize this during transport!
Coolpack’s products are an indispensable link when it comes to thermal packaging, also known as thermal packaging. Binnen de gevalideerde thermal packaging verpakkingsoplossing worden met name koelelementen gebruikt. Met de juiste buitenverpakking kan voor een lange periode een zeer stabiele temperatuur worden aangehouden, namelijk tot een periode van 120 uur.
Om dit te realiseren kunnen de koelelementen worden gevuld met Phase Change Material (PCM). Door de hoge kwaliteit van deze vulling is het mogelijk stabiele temperaturen te behalen binnen een temperatuurrange van -65 tot +42 graden.
Indien de voorkeur uitgaat naar een flexibeler koelmiddel kunnen onze diepgevroren gelpacks ook worden ingezet om de te verzenden producten op temperatuur te houden. The gel packs can also be filled with PCM to maintain very stable temperatures for a long period.
