Transporting frozen goods

5 posts in this topic

Thinking about starting a small online business selling frozen food. Will be some smaller orders so wondering how we could transport these around the country. We're in a major isaan city.

You will need some polystyrene boxes,different sizes,Makro has a lot of sizes,then

as your business grows you could purchase direct from the manufacturer, you will

also need some dry ice,dont know where you will get that from,but ask Swensons

ice cream if you have one in your area,they put bits of dry ice in takeaway ice cream.

lots of people send by bus,overnight,or more expensive couriers. good luck

I do the same in China, but to me the most important is a vacuum packing machine, vacuum pack, freeze, pack nd seal well in polystyrene boxes, I find good for three days

Depends how far you intend to transport the food and how much you need to transport.

For small amounts the polystyrene containers are ideal, with either reusable gel packs or dry ice.  

To transport larger amounts you can buy a Eutectic Freezer which will keep things frozen for around 10 hours.   

I bought one from this company http://thanakoon.com/product-category/eutectic-plate-freezer/?lang=en

You can also try this company http://www.aiplus1.com/Equipment-of-Frozen/Mobile-Eutetcic-Freezer.html

This is the one I have (pics below)

Just go the Swensons route. Eat all the ice cream and reuse the dry ice.
