Getting Started

Supply chain solutions for food products, especially seafood, bring more intricacies then other products as they require strict temperature parameters to be met, as well as complying with sanitation and cross-contamination restrictions. On-time delivery and visibility of these shipments is incredibly important to ensure freshness and product quality. This client has chosen to work with numerous Customs and freight forwarding companies, including Western Overseas Corporation to insure that product is constantly moving and delivering.

Challenges

Temperature Controlled Transportation

For this seafood company, temperature controlled shipping containers that meet regulatory specifications and requirements is the number one priority, as monitoring container temperatures not only ensures that products don’t spoil, they also prolong the life of the product.
