 Temperature matters

It is important to maintain the corresponding temperatures during the entire cold chain to keep good quality. In some fruits, one or two degrees more/ less can make a big difference in the quality of the cargo upon arrival.

Sometimes, even if the temperature guidelines are followed correctly, there are external variables that affect the temperature of the cargo. Therefore, it is recommended to use OTFLOW. This reefer floor cover keeps the temperature more stable across the entire container, reducing the risk for the cargo.
