Freeze Protection Services
Freeze protection services make sure your temperature-sensitive freight is protected when your freight passes through extremely cold regions.
What Are Freeze Protection Services?
Freeze protection is a service provided by many carriers to prevent freight from being exposed to frigid temperatures. You can’t control what the weather will be like across state lines, so being cognizant of the path your freight is likely to travel —say, from Florida to California, but must pass through a blizzard in Colorado—is important to guarantee that your temperature-sensitive freight is prepared. Rest assured that with freeze protection your temperature-sensitive cargo will arrive to its final destination uncompromised.
Is My Freight Susceptible to Freezing?
Some common commodities that might be prone to freezing are:
Electronics and wood furniture are also sensitive to extreme changes in weather. Since many items are freezable, but not all items are covered by freeze protection services, make sure you ask your freight agent where your cargo falls before booking a shipment.
What Do Freeze Protection Services Include
The carrier you select will determine exactly which freeze protection services are offered with your freight shipment. Freeze protection services can include a wide array of features, including: Protective pallet blankets, heated trailers, and expediting time-sensitive shipments. Some special handling procedures that are offered by various carriers include:
Designating sheltered areas to hold freezable freight during severe weather
Labeling shipments and Bills of Lading to easily identify freezable goods
Monitoring weather forecasts using AccuWeather
Adhering to carrier guidelines for protecting goods while in transit and over weekends
Using warm rooms when needed
