Refrigeration during long shipment; containers stacked at ports

Jake Dear | Feb 9, 201508:19 AM

News of thousands of shipping containers stacked at west coast ports makes me think of some long overdue wine I'm waiting for. And it makes me ask: How does one find out whether a given importer actually uses refrigerated transport? (When I ask, I'm often told yes, but I'd like verification.) And even if it's refrigerated on board ship, what happens when the container sits stacked at the port/ docks for days or weeks? Can even Kermit Lynch protect against that part of the journey? Is there an industry publication addressing this and related issues? -- Jake
