In a country as large as India different regions have different weather conditions ranging from excessive heat to hailstorms to freezing conditions. For instance, the harsh summers in the south are in stark contrast to the freezing cold of the Himalayas in the north and north-eastern parts of the country. The rain and humidity of the east would be the opposite of extremely dry heat in the desert areas of the west. All these can have severe effect upon the movement of goods when they are in transit.
How weather can affect your goods:
Heat can damage paper packed products, decompose perishable goods and also lead to leakages. Rain can dampen wood crating and wood products. Freezing cold is capable of shrinking and reducing the efficacy of products. All these factors combine to effect perishable and fresh produce adversely.
