13.1.1   Travel or transport temperature
In general, the travel or transport temperature is the optimum storage temperature of a product, compliance with which ensures that the maximum storage life is achieved. For most goods not under temperature control, temperatures ranging from
5 - 20°C are deemed optimal.
On voyages into the subtropics and tropics, however, higher temperatures have to be expected, while in the winter months in temperate latitudes lower temperatures have to be expected.
Information about the optimum temperature range is of considerable fundamental importance, since it indicates that transport always entails a degree of risk.
