Shipping Food with uShip
Food shipments are often critical, require a higher level of care and may be subject to legal restrictions. That's why it's important to choose the best food shipping company for your needs. You want a carrier who can help take the stress out of shipping your food farm to market. Communication is of the utmost importance when delivering a sensitive product like produce, as you need to know where your shipment is at all times.
It's important to find as many food shipping companies as possible when researching your carrier options. Be sure to compare them to each other, looking for experience, communication styles, and reviews. Price of shipping matters as well, but you may not always want to go with the cheapest option.
