The Importance of Temperature Controlled Shipping

At Graylaw Freight, we carry over a million kilos of goods each week, many of which are temperature-sensitive. After almost 30 years of innovative shipping, our company has become a Market Leader to the Isle of Man. We believe strongly in the vital importance of environmentally friendly temperature controlled shipping and the impact it can have on the success of the millions of businesses that rely on the large scale movement of goods that are temperature sensitive.


Temperature controlled transport could be one of the most vital advances ever made within the world of freight. Since large-scale movement of goods began, business owners have been searching for ways to ensure that their products can be moved en-masse with as minimal effect on individual items as possible. Delicate goods that could not be transported via rickety cart were much more likely to arrive in one piece via a smooth canal barge, for example. Meat that was due to go on long sea voyages was salted to ensure that it could be preserved for as long a period as possible.


With the advent of lorries and other large goods-transporting vehicles including ships and aeroplanes, numerous methods have been sought to combat the adverse effects of the outside environment on more sensitive goods. Temperature controlled shipping can help in the movement of items from dairy-based products such as milk and ice cream, meats, sensitive chemicals and even organs for donation, so, from saving lives to allowing businesses to trade further afield, the world owes a great deal to temperature controlled freight.


To enable us to give even more back to the community, Graylaw Freight is constantly working on ways to reduce road miles and generally become more environmentally friendly.
