Storing and Transporting Mixed Goods

One of the stiffest challenges that we face is transporting mixed types of products in refrigerated conditions. We place each variety of product into specified ‘settling in’ spaces, away from the other varieties.  This helps to prevent the transfer of heat, (a very common phenomenon when multiple types of goods are transported simultaneously),

As a result of this, the temperature stabilises, without compromising the other products in the vicinity. We use specifically structured cartons and specially designed insulated partitions.

We also take utmost care while transporting heat-sensitive products like confectionaries, ice creams and the likes along with other products that are comparatively less heat-sensitive. And we make sure that there is no heat transfer, affecting the goods. Again, our expertise, and the technique that we follow come into play.

Tackling the Challenge of Heat Transfer

Well, let us now get into the think of things. How we manage the peril of heat transfer?

Technically speaking, Heat Transfer is a ‘must-tackle’ phenomenon in cold chain transportation. Every company offering refrigerated transport in Sunshine Coast has to take into account the implications of heat convection, radiation and conduction.

Convection is the phenomenon of warmer products heating up the circumforaneous air, thereby affecting the products. Conduction, on the other hand, is the transfer of heat via direct physical contact between the goods. Radiation occurs due to generation of heat by a product to another nearby product.

In cold chain logistics, heat transfer is the culprit that raise the temperature of products that are transported in “NEVER WARMER THAN’ conditions.

We at JD Refrigerated Transport strictly adhere to the cold chain transportation guidelines to tackle heat transfer and related issues.

We pride to state that we have the technology and the expertise to keep at bay the menace of heat transfer. That is what makes us such a reputed name in cold chain logistics today.

Responding to the Cold Chain Disruptions

This is another area where we have excelled over the years. We have the means and the experience to figure any disruption or break in the cold chain logistics. This helps us to take evasive actions at the earliest.

Here again, the way we follow the strict guidelines of cold chain logistics helps us to keep the instances of cold chain disruptions to almost nil. This again is definitely another feather in our cap.
