Following factors should be checked during an inspection of Refrigerated Cargo.
A sample of cargo should be taken and checked for the following things-
- The temperature of the cargo should be measured and must not exceed the threshold limit temperature of the cargo.
- frozen cargo should be hard frozen and free of spots and mould there should be no blood stains on the wrappings
- fruits should not be in the advanced stage of ripeness, skin should not get discoloured and should not be brown on the inside.
- Smell is an important factor and it can itself tell us that the cargo is not right.
