 How to Ship Produce in Bulk

Packaging and Preparation: Choosing the right packaging is crucial when shipping produce in bulk. Opt for sturdy containers or pallets that protect against impacts and shifting during transit. For delicate items such as berries or leafy greens, consider using soft packaging materials like cushioned liners or foam inserts to prevent bruising or crushing. Additionally, label your packages or pallets clearly with handling instructions and any special requirements, such as refrigeration or ventilation, to ensure that your produce arrives at its destination in optimal condition.

Choosing the Right Carrier: The right carrier can be considered most important for successful bulk produce shipping. Look for carriers with experience handling perishable goods and a proven track record of reliability. At FreightCenter, we work with a network of the industry’s top and trusted carriers specializing in bulk produce transportation, ensuring that your goods are safe.
