Produce
Fresh produce is known for providing nutritional benefits when consumed. Produce is also known for its very short shelf life. As a result, there is virtually no room for errors during transportation. Proper temperature control preserves the product’s quality and maximizes the shelf-life, whether it is storing produce or while in transit.

To get berries from California or Mexico to Asia, air freight is the best method of transportation. As a result, this will allow the end-consumer the opportunity to enjoy the freshness and quality. Produce like apples and oranges almost always travel by ocean freight due to their longer shelf-life, in addition to cost-effectiveness.

strawberries
Strawberries
Storage temp: 32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Strawberries have a very brief storage life; they can only last to one or two days when stored under warm conditions. When strawberries get warmer, they tend to lose some of their sugars and vitamins and tend to bruise and decay quickly.
asparagus
Asparagus
Storage temp: 32-35° F
Relative humidity: 95-100%

Asparagus is highly perishable and must be cooled immediately. This vegetable must maintain low storage temperature to prevent flavor loss and texture deterioration.
blueberries
Blueberries
Storage temp: 32-35° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Blueberry is a superfood because of its health benefits, but they’re still part of the berry group, meaning high perishable produce. Therefore, they should maintain a storage temperature of 32-35° F, similar to other berries.
raspberries
Raspberries
Storage temp: 31-32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Like strawberries, raspberries also have short storage life. Cold chain logistics minimize metabolic activity and fungal decay and ensure that raspberries are delivered fresh.
blackberries
Blackberries
Storage temp: 31-32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Like every other berry being exported, blackberries are no exception for being a highly perishable fruit. Blackberries should be stored at32°F to have a shelf life of 4-10days.
peaches
Peaches
Storage temp: 31-32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

When peaches are maturely picked, they can undergo softening and sweetening after harvest. When it comes to exporting them after harvest, they must be stored at the right temperature to slow down the decay of the fruit.
avacado
Avocado
Storage temp: 38-45° F
Relative humidity: 85-95%

One of the most in-demand fruit to be exported, avocados can be easily bruised if not shipped in a temperature-controlled setting.
cherries
Cherries
Storage temp: 30-32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Cherries are very soft and have tender skin; because of this, they tend to ripen fast. They’re also one of the fruits in high demand; that’s why they need to be handled with care when it comes to product shipment and should be ensured that they are sold to retail markets within 21 days of picking.
lettuce
Salad
Storage temp: 32° F
Relative humidity: 98-100%

Salad greens like lettuce are very temperature sensitive, sometimes referred to as a delicate crop. Its storage and transfer should be handled with care because if the temperature is too warm or cold or the humidity levels are not in check, it would spoil quickly.
grapes
Grapes
Storage temp: 31-32° F
Relative humidity: 85%

Out of all the fruits that are transported via cold chain logistics, grapes are the ones that have long storage potential, even lasting up to several months! To achieve this, grapes should be stored at 31-32°F.
mango
Mango
Storage temp: 50-55° F
Relative humidity: 85-95%

Mangoes are cultivated in tropical places, but that doesn’t mean that they’re shipped quickly. Mangoes can bruise easily because they’re primarily high pressure and impact-sensitive, so proper handling is essential during transport.
stone fruit
Stone Fruit
Storage temp: 31-32° F
Relative humidity: 90-95%

Stone fruits like apricot, nectarines, and plums use cold chain logistics to control the processes of their ripening and lessen deterioration effectively.
