PACKAGING FROZEN GOODS
Packaging is one of the important and indispensable links in Logistics activities, including the work of wrapping, covering, boxing/containers, etc. so that products are protected in the most comprehensive way when preserving, transporting as well as more convenient in loading and unloading and consuming products.
Unlike conventional products, frozen foods need a closed packaging process, requiring manufacturers to follow strict standards to ensure that goods can be moved safely, saving maximum cost and efficiency through the entire supply chain.

Packaging in cold storage (Warehouse packaging):
When goods are sorted (consumer goods or B2B goods) and arranged on racking systems. Specialized containers are used at this time to avoid other agents in the warehouse (cold) as well as protect the goods (for food). The size of these boxes must match the height of the counter as well as store the product perfectly.

• Materials chosen to pack goods must meet the requirements of durability, toughness as well as be able to withstand physical impacts (such as collide, pull, push) during storage, loading and transportation.

• Packaging materials must withstand freezing temperatures from 0oC → -40oC
Packaging materials must be resistant to high temperatures
