Sending food by courier is no different to transporting any other item, as long as you can comply with rules to ensure its safety.

Can you send food by courier?

The simplest answer to this question is: yes, you can. However, it does not exhaust the issue of transporting food items.

The answer is yes. Due to the perishability and risk of spoilage during transport, carriers apply food transport restrictions. This is necessary to protect remaining parcels from damage - flooding, soiling, odour.


How to send food by courier?

The main conditions for transporting food by courier are the shelf life of the products and how they are packaged.

Shipping fresh food by courier

Try to refrain from shipping items that are likely to spoil. This applies to items that require refrigeration as well as processed foods. For shipping fresh produce, the solution will be isothermal, temperature-controlled shipping.

Shipment by courier of dry products

The so-called "dry" products are easy to send, which means all products that are not harmed by difficult conditions in transport - temperature or humidity. Also tinned food and other articles packed in durable tins should reach the recipient intact. When sending food by courier, airtight packaging is a good option.


Shipping liquids

The transportation of liquids will be slightly more difficult. Glass packaging - jars, bottles - will require protection to prevent breakage and spillage of the contents.

Preparing food for shipment

When sending food by courier, make sure not only that it is properly packed and protected. Remember also to plan the shipment so that the transport lasts as short as possible.

If you have any doubts about whether a particular product can be shipped, please contact your nearest MBE Centre - we will plan for you the best and safest way to ship your food by courier, taking into account your individual needs, requirements and timescales.
