Transportation presents unique environment control situations. During in-transit, an involuntary interruption of power of refrigeration equipment can compromise the cold chain. Improper cold storage environment or poor air circulation, breach in integrity is indeed likely to take place. Whether by train, plane, ship or truck, products must be kept within their temperature safe zone and the temperature verified upon arrival.
Warehouse & Cold Storage

During loading or unloading, a product can be left on the loading dock for an extended period. A cold chain can be compromised due to poor temperature maintenance and control of warehouse and cold storage.
