Cold Weather, Freight and Freezing Indicators

Freeze Watch

We’ve just heard back from our freight forwarder that shipments are starting to move again, albeit slowly. As a precaution we’re taking bookings for cargo 5 or 6 days forward just to make sure we get the space. We have a couple of our customers who are canners overseas who need retort process indicators urgently and are held up because of the snow and unusually cold weather in and around London (a temperature of -10C is very rare here but has been almost continually for 2 weeks now). Rest assured we’re doing our best. UK deliveries for canning indicators and temperature labels are doing better, with minor delays of approximately 2 days at the moment.

We won’t be closing for the Christmas and New Year interim period but we do expect courier companies to be operating with reduced staff. If you need stock urgently then let us know, and remember that our online ordering system is available 24hrs a day. It’s the fastest way to get a delivery.

At this time of year we always see an increase in popularity of the Freeze Watch indicator that provides evidence of exposure to freezing conditions. Check it out in the Refrigeration section of the website – we’ve made sure we have good stocks available for immediate shipment. It’s a great product: accurate, easy to use and has a strong visual impact. Just peel off the backing paper and stick it to our chosen item or surface. If temperatures drop below 0C / 32F then the indicator activates and you see the colour change seen in the photo above. Need to measure refrigerated products to check for increasing temperatures? Why not have a look at the Chillchecker?

Best wishes for the holidays and wrap up warm!
