The transport of temperature sensitive goods can present a complex challenge. From pharmaceuticals to perishable foods, maintaining temperature consistency is crucial to ensuring a first-rate product is delivered. This challenge is amplified in international logistics when the goods may be subject to a spectrum of climatic conditions as they move around the globe. Dynachill foil thermal covers are designed to protect sensitive goods against the unpredictable external conditions they encounter on their journey.
Here we will go through the various options, and highlight the pros and cons of each thermal cover variant.

The four main transport methods are ROAD, RAIL, SEA and AIR.
All these methods are selected for different reasons with sea freight being the cheapest and is considered the most eco-friendly, but it takes a lot longer than the other options partly due to delays at port and time taken to unload the ships.

This blog will look at thermal protection in the context of transporting goods. This blog also assumes that the goods need to be kept cool rather than warm. If you have a requirement to keep product from getting too cold then the same principles apply.
This article aims to help people working in cold chain logistics understand the
transfer of thermal energy (heat) and is an attempt to explain as simply as possible
the science behind keeping things cold.
‘Heat’ is the main environmental hazard in the transportation of temperature sensitive goods.
Ever since the earliest times there has been the challange of moving goods safely to market and to consumers via trade routes that were vital to sustaining the ancient empires.

Among the first goods transported by air were perishable products including fruit, flowers and vegetables. These products are perishable and therefore vulnerable to extremes of temperature, high humidity and susceptible to damage, necessitating careful transportation.
