Export and import aren’t as easy as “just pack the product and ship it” regarding sensitive products.
A sensitive product is a product that can easily be damaged or products that can go bad if not kept at a specific temperature. Many things fall into this category, such as cosmetics, medicine, food, and many other things you use daily.
To obtain them wherever you live, these items had to go through cargo shipping if they were imported.
And if the shipping hadn’t been done correctly with the conditions created, you wouldn’t even be able to purchase those products. This type of shipping, sensitive cargo shipping, is prevalent.
I decided to write about how to store and ship sensitive cargo to or from Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is a hot country. This means that shipping sensitive cargo isn’t easy, especially if shipping internationally. But this guide will tell you all you need to know.
Where to store sensitive cargo?
Regarding sensitive cargo, it usually doesn’t spend much time in a storage unit. This is because most of these products are shipped almost immediately after being made. This is because they are sensitive, and the faster they find themselves where they need to be, the better. But, if having to store these products away for a couple of days, you have to make sure to find a secure place for your goods. This would be a warehouse, for example.
Saudi Arabia has plenty of warehouses to choose from. This is exactly because it is a place with a warm climate.
All the warehouses are climate-controlled in SA because of this. But having a climate-controlled warehouse and storing your good safely is easy. But the thing that doesn’t come so quickly is shipping these products.
Shipping sensitive cargo
You can’t store your good forever. You can, but why would you? Your goods need to be shipped to another place so that you can continue with your business. And shipping sensitive cargo is not an easy task.
This is why you don’t handle it by yourself or why you don’t hire an inexperienced company to do this for you.
When it comes to shipping sensitive cargo, outsourcing is an excellent solution if searching for a reliable company to handle this task.
And for shipping sensitive cargo, the cold chain is the perfect solution. If you need clarification on a cold chain, here is a brief description.
The cold chain is the process of a fast and uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities.
These activities are done first so it’s easy and possible to maintain a given temperature range for the sensitive goods shipped.
You also have to make sure that your goods are packed nicely so you don’t have to worry if you are shipping fragile items.
