TRANSPORTING PACKAGED FROZEN POULTRY TO EUROPEAN MARKETS IN VAN CONTAINERS AND BREAK-BULK SHIPMENTS

The research conducted for this study was directed toward adapting van containers to the transport of frozen poultry. It drew preliminary comparisons between the van-container and break-bulk shipments aimed at reducing transport, handling, and packaging costs for overseas shipments of frozen poultry. This study also helped to develop methodology because the transport of frozen poultry to Europe by van-container service was just beginning when the research project was initiated. Instead of presenting conclusive results, this report directs attention to potential economies in shipping frozen poultry to overseas markets, and to areas needing further research and study.
