In railway transportation, the railway does not handle the cold storage, heat preservation, heating and ventilation transportation of LCL fresh goods. Because there are many kinds of fresh goods, different modes of transportation and different vehicles, it is very difficult to load LCL fresh goods, the long time of goods assembly is not conducive to accelerating the delivery of goods, and there is no escort on LCL vehicles, which is not conducive to maintaining the quality of goods.
However, when general freight cars are used for short-distance transportation, each railway branch (head office) may, according to the specific situation in the management, start the in pipe less than carload transportation of some fresh goods. When trans Railway Branch (head office) or trans Bureau transportation is used, it can be handled only when the goods can be transported directly to the arrival station by one station whole parts car or unloaded at the arrival station by two stations whole parts car. Whether the station has the conditions to organize the less than carload transportation of fresh and live goods, and to organize the one-stop whole car or two-stop whole car, needs the shipper to contact and decide. In general, it is difficult to handle.
It is pointed out that the fresh and live goods handled according to less than carload are all goods transported under special conditions, which is only an expedient measure. The shipper guarantees that the LCL fresh and live goods will not rot, deteriorate or die within the proposed allowable transportation period.
