Why You Might Ship Perishables This Summer

Hardly ever does someone find themselves in a situation where they think to themselves “You know what? I am going to ship a refrigerated item across the country.” But you know what? It is a lot more common than you thing. Luckily, there is a such thing called ice packs for shipping. As a provider of shipping ice packs, we at Herolily understand that even while you may think that you will never need to use frozen ice packs to ship a perishable, sometimes things come up and you have to.

Below, we have compiled a short list of situations that are a lot common than you think, that you might find yourself in.

Sharing The Summer Catch

Have you ever been on a fishing trip? We can picture it now, with the sun blazing down on you as you wet your line in the water, and just like that — you feel a tug on the line. While it is fairly common in fishing that a tug on the line could very well just be your hook catching on to a submerged log or rock, but not this time — it’s a fish! After a long and gruelling battle you succeed and the fish is now dinner.

While the above story is an extremely fun situation, fishing can usually go one of two ways — you either catch no fish, or you catch a ton of fish. Obviously we wish you the latter experience on your fishing trip, there is a such thing as catching too many fish. Luckily, you can share with others.

Once you clean the fish, seal them in plastic, and freeze them, you are now ready to send it off to your friends and family. By utilizing an insulated box and some ice packs for shipping you can ensure that the catch reaches its destination in edible condition.

A Friend Or Family Member’s Birthday

One of the worst things about living in a different state than your family members is that you can’t spend their birthday with them without traveling, meaning there is now way that you can bake them your favorite confetti cake because it requires refrigeration. Luckily this isn’t the case.

Cook your prize winning cake like you would if you lived in the same area as your family. Rather than frosting it, leave it bare and send the frosting in a secure container with the cake. After that all you have to do is fill the box with disposable ice packs of freezable ice packs and send it to another family member — with proper instructions of how to frost the cake, of course.

You Miss Your Favorite Food

Say that you are from Chicago, and your favorite food in the world is the famous Giordano’s deep dish pizza. You might think that you have to wait until your next trip to Chicago, but you can have it sooner depending on how good of friends that you have.  

Instruct your friend to get you a pizza, cool it off, freeze it, and send it your way. All it takes is, you guessed it — an insulated box and ice packs for shipping.
