Bulk Juice Transportation

The United States is both an importer and exporter of juices. As such, it is affected by the dynamics of both the domestic and global juice industries and markets, including fluctuations in economic, political, and natural forces as well as the vicissitudes of population. In general, markets have grown, leveled off, and have seen some downward trends. But despite the sometimes seemingly tenuous position of the U.S. and others as a result of current issues (e.g., trade deficits, tainted U.S.-imported orange and apple juices, and changes in consumer tastes and attitudes), a recent market research report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., announced by PRWeb on November 14, 2013, predicts the fruit and vegetable juices market is poised to strengthen.

Need for Transporting Juice

Because of its domestic and global presence in the juice industries and markets, the U.S.’s involvement demands that it provide for transporting juice safely both at home and abroad, and it does so via all major modes of transportation. In an effort to ensure safety and provide consistency in the process of bulk juice transportation, the U.S. government has issued a number of recommendations.

Governmental Recommendations for Juice Transport

U.S. government guidance for juice transportation is included in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) document titled, “Guidance for Industry: Guidance on Bulk Transport of Juice Concentrates and Certain Shelf-Stable Juices; Final Guidance” (April 24, 2003).

The FDA provides detailed information regarding this guidance in this article (last updated 8/16/2013). Essentially, it includes recommendations for appropriate control measures to use in juice transport in an effort to avoid contamination or recontamination of juice during bulk juice transportation. The guidance covers juice products, containers used in juice transport, and related equipment used in the process of transporting juice.
