This type of transport is particularly suitable for all goods that need to maintain a certain temperature. The operating principle of controlled-temperature transports is based on the use of a thermostat, able to control the temperature and to start cooling or heating cycles depending on the circumstance, and then return to the desired temperature by means of special machinery belonging to the vehicle.
The food industry, primary user of this service, recognizes the importance that the temperature-controlled transports require, and therefore relies only on certified shippers.
In addition to the temperature-controlled transports, the food industry, by the time, has begun to appear in the world of transporting dry goods, a growing trend for the whole sector under various point of views, both nationally and internationally.
We transport all types of dry goods to the markets both for partial and full loads. Each load is treated with care and attention to ensure that the goods arrive intact and in the best condition.
The intermodal transport involves the combination of two or more means of transport, indifferently by road, rail, sea or air and represents a way of handling goods and sorting them in the so-called loading units. Born with the aim of reducing road trips, thus limiting transport costs and pollution emissions from the environment, it gives the opportunity to transport goods of all kind, thanks to the standardization of loading units.
Furthermore, given the combination of different means of transport, it is possible to benefit simultaneously from the advantages of each of those, guaranteeing not only greater efficiency in transport, but also a significant reduction in costs.
For the transport of dried or cut flowers and potted or clod plants, we have vehicles designed to accommodate the goods so that they are protected during shorter or longer journeys; temperature controlling and stops planning for irrigation or watering, are the main measures we implement to ensure the correct safeguarding of those goods. The transport of potted green plants involves the use of special trolleys, inside which intermediate platforms can be positioned for the arrangement of plants of different heights. The transport of sod plants, which are more vulnerable once extracted from the ground, requires greater care and is managed by us using controlled vehicles in which temperature and humidity are constantly monitored.
