Why Shipping Fresh or Frozen Seafood Using Insulated Shipping Boxes Works So Well

How Cost-Effective Insulated Shipping Containers in Corrugated Boxes Protect Fish, Crab, Shrimp, and More During Transit!

As one of the miracles of modern science today, Expanded Polystyrene foam shipping containers make it so that, no matter where you live, you can enjoy certain fresh foods that you might otherwise have no access to because of distance. Indeed, people living in dry, desert areas far from the sea can still have delicious, recently caught seafood delivered right to their door just as Mary did when her daughter’s family thought of her while on vacation in Miami, Florida – a popular location for catching and eating stone crab.

When Mary heard the doorbell rang and looked out the window to see the overnight carrier truck, she became wildly excited because she knew that the stone crab claws ordered online the day prior by her daughter, Jennifer, had arrived!

You see, stone crab is one of Mary’s favorite delicacies, so once she gave her signature and commenced to cutting open the corrugated cardboard box her mind became filled with rich visions of succulent crab meat with steamed red potatoes and butter-drenched corn on the cob. Nowhere in this scenario was there even a moment’s concern on her part that her seafood cargo would be spoiled after a transit of more than seven hundred miles.

Sure enough, she opened the container within the outer box and inside were pounds of colorful, well-wrapped, completely fresh claws ready for the steamer, resulting in one more satisfied customer among tens of thousands of content clients annually from all over the nation who get to enjoy non-indigenous fish, crab, shrimp, and other seafood thanks to the most cost-effective thermal protection available for shipping such items across the state or across the country.

What makes it possible for Mary to have seafood shipped by mail to arrive still fresh?

The combination of thermal insulation provided by EPS foam shippers and a rugged, sturdy corrugated cardboard shipping box – add to that a proper arrangement of frozen refrigerants such as gel packs or dry ice – is the key, enabling the contents to remain within a specific, safe temperature range necessary for maintaining product integrity.

So, in an age where temperature-sensitive cargo delivery around the United States (and the world) by carrier networks has been reduced to less than a single day, the thermal reliability inherent to EPS packaging has proven a blessing for seafood lovers like Mary as shipments arrive cold, inviting, with far less risk of contamination.
