Sea freight


The big advantage of sea freight compared to airfreight is the continuity in the transport, i.e. the chain has few and relatively secure handover points regarding temperature control.  Containers (refrigerated and non-refrigerated) are multimodal equipment, which generally allow goods to be switched between land and sea transport without the need of breaking up the cargo. 

Air temperature should be kept between -2 °C and 0 °C for optimal storage of superchilled fish products.  The superchilled storage conditions during sea transport are in general more important than during road transport since normally, sea transport lasts longer. 

In case of fresh fillets transported in containers with proper temperature control, there may not be a real need for melting ice on top of the fillets.  If ice is used then make sure melted ice water does not stay in contact with the products (use boxes with drainage-holes) or that cross contamination is not caused by melted water from one fish box to another. 

  • Check product temperature before loading the container
  • Permit free flow of cooling air around the cargo by not over-loading the container
