Delivery of temperature-sensitive cargoes

There are some goods which carriage requires special equipment to be able to maintain a certain temperature. For example, such conditions of delivery are required for seafood and meat, deep-frozen semi-finished products, confectionery. In Meridian Line you can order the transportation of your goods with maintaining the required temperature regime. We will deliver them by sea in refrigerated containers - reliable, ventilated, and complying with sanitary standards. We will develop the best route for multimodal transportation of frozen products: by sea + by rail or by road. We will arrange all handling operations.
