Summary

Summary

Food transportation represents a significant element of the food industry with major implications for food product costs, in terms of the direct costs associated with transportation, and those potentially larger ones associated with poor product and packaging quality which are consequences of inefficient and/or inappropriate operation. This handbook is for both the transporter and food producer, in that it bridges the interests and specializations of both. The book covers both the logistics and food science, and considers transport (i.e. land, sea, and air) as well as by its food sector.
