Increasingly in demand
Ocean freight is increasingly in demand. And it is not only producers of durable consumer goods who appreciate the benefits of transporting their products by sea. More and more suppliers of perishable products are also starting to use cargo ships to get their product to its destination. For example, we see strong growth in temperature-controlled ocean freight for spray carnations, roses and other products.
One important advantage of ocean freight is that flower growers or traders can plan effectively for high-turnover special occasions such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. If you harvest early, you can allow for the relatively long transit time when shipping flowers by sea. This approach also smooths peaks and troughs in your production. We transport your products at a controlled temperature of between 0 and 0.5oC to almost completely neutralise the ageing process so that your products arrive at their destination at the right stage of flower senescence. And did you know that the carbon footprint of ocean freight is only a third of that of air freight?
