FAQs about eggs and dairy transport

Eggs are typically stored for shipping in specialised containers or cartons designed to protect them during transit. These containers are designed to cushion the eggs and prevent breakage. Eggs are also stored and transported at specific temperature and humidity levels to maintain their freshness.

Eggs can be transported by various methods, including refrigerated trucks, cargo ships, and air freight. The choice of transportation method depends on the distance the eggs need to travel and the specific requirements of the customer.

Eggs can survive shipping for varying durations depending on the conditions and handling during transport. Generally, when kept at the proper temperature (usually refrigerated), eggs can remain fresh for several weeks to a few months.

The number of eggs that can fit in a shipping container depends on the size and type of container being used. Common shipping containers may hold thousands to tens of thousands of eggs. The specific capacity would be determined by the packaging and size of the eggs.

The best storage for eggs is a cool and consistent temperature. Ideally, eggs should be stored in a refrigerator at temperatures between 35°F to 45°F (1.7°C to 7.2°C). It's essential to store eggs in their original carton to protect them and to prevent moisture loss, which can affect their quality.
