Optimizing shipment of lily buls in 40fr teefer containers

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    Lily bulbs is an extremely temperature sensitive and precious commodity. Every now and then it happens that upon delivery the condition of the bulbs is disappointing. Several measures can be taken to reduce the quality loss during transport, both in terms of reefer unit settings and in terms of stowage in the container. It is unclear what exactly is the consequence of which measure.
