Although air freight takes less time, sometimes there can be enormous temperature peaks during the journey, which can negatively influence the flowers.
On the other hand, when using OTFLOW on your sea freight reefers, the temperature remains stable and, therefore, your flowers remain dormant.
There are other reasons to choose to export by sea:
According to a study by the University of Wageningen, several recommendations exist on how to transport cut flowers by the sea. The set point is recommended to be not to cause frost damage. However, temperatures up to 2℃ are suitable for transport, with a temperature variation of +1.5℃ is acceptable for containers. OTFLOW reduces the temperature differences by up to 67%, so it can help maintain the best temperatures during longer transit times if delays occur. It is important to note that some cultivars can survive a transport of at least 14 days and up to 3 weeks.
Despite having to be kept at a specific temperature, using a container with a ‘controlled atmosphere’ is essential to reduce oxygen levels and increase carbon dioxide levels. OTFLOW can be used as a complementary product in regular refrigerated containers as reefers with a controlled atmosphere.
