Perishable food is any food that has a limited shelf life and requires careful handling and storage to prevent spoilage. Perishable food includes fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy products, flowers and some pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Shipping perishable food by air is a fast and reliable way to transport these products across long distances and ensure their freshness and quality.
When it comes to transporting cargo, ensuring its safety and maintaining its original state are of paramount importance. Unfortunately, various challenges, including water damage, can compromise the condition of your air and sea freight.
If liquid escapes from air cargo into the aircraft fuselage, then there is a risk of damage, including over the longer term of corrosion. Corrosion has been identified as the cause of some aircraft failures that have resulted in loss of life.
In this article I highlight the best practices for managing and containing situations where there is risk of liquids being discharged during transit on an airplane. There is also an interesting case study where an airline is handling wet cargo which is causing serious corrosion in the body of the aircraft.
