When it comes to transporting fresh, frozen or temperature-sensitive perishable products, it is imperative to preserve the delicate nature of the goods. Refrigerated transportation is a critical link in the cold chain logistic operations. Global companies in the perishables industry need a partner who can provide temperature-controlled transportation with the appropriate infrastructure to store and handle time-sensitive shipments.

“When shipping temperature-sensitive products, every detail counts,” says Ibis Torres, international imports accounts executive. “While proper packing is vital for success, so are handling, storage and transportation. At Amerijet, we also understand the importance of delivering product quality for perishable products.”

Amerijet International, Inc., Miami, Fla., has served the perishable industry for over 40 years, and offers import/export customers access to its custom-built 10,300-square-foot perishable handling center. Its features include multiple pre-cooling systems with refrigerated storage space subdivided into four climate-controlled chambers offering refrigerated, frozen and chilled storage.

“As a dedicated air cargo airline, we have invested heavily in the best training and equipment to transport temperature-controlled shipments safely,” Torres adds. “Proper temperature monitoring and being able to provide the necessary storage capabilities are crucial due to the fragile nature of these products, and we have both the proven experience and unparalleled expertise to get the job done in the most effective and timely fashion in the industry.”
