Perishable

One of our clients is in the frozen lobster business. We had a long and successful history of moving their product to several points all around the world. They decided to get into the business of shipping live lobsters around the globe. Even though they had no previous experience in maintaining, packing, or preparing live lobsters for air transport, they weren’t anxious. They knew Imperial Freight Brokers would exceed their expectations.

Imperial Freight had previous experience shipping live lobsters and had the resources that our client could consult for guidance and solutions. Imperial Freight Brokers also works with a host of air carriers that are well experienced in daily deliveries and the shipping of perishables such as live lobsters.

Due to Imperial Freight’s connections and existing expertise, best practices from throughout the industry provided this newcomer with the fastest transit time from Miami to Asia, which allowed our client to have lobsters available to market two to three hours before the competition.

As a result, our client now has been able to set the market pricing for live lobsters in Asia for the last few seasons.
