How to Ship Crabs With Prime Fresh Handling

To ship crabs, you will need to make sure that you have the necessary materials. Perhaps the most important of these materials is the packaging material. The materials that the crabs are transported in should consist of a container sturdy enough to hold the crabs, with just enough space allowed for them to move around while not being flung around while they are being transported. Also, this container should be well-ventilated to allow for proper air circulation. Our logistics company could assist you with the best containers and materials needed for crab transportation when we handle your needs. 

How Do You Keep Crabs Alive When Transporting? 

Since crabs are often shipped while they are alive, they need to be under the most optimal conditions. This even includes the temperature and moisture that the crabs are stored in. When it comes to live crab and stone crab delivery, crabs require a moist requirement to survive. Our cool chain management professionals make sure to line the containers that have the crabs in them with damp towels or other materials that maintain the humidity of the crabs. However, as one of the most reputable logistics companies in Miami, we would like to point out that the humidity levels cannot be too high or too low, as going, either way, could be detrimental to the integrity of the crabs. We are here to make sure that our partners in the crab industry are well-taken care of when it comes to time to transport live crabs.
