Transport containers should be thoroughly cleaned and, if necessary, disinfected after each transport. Only professional cleaning in a cleaning station certified according to the ENFIT standard gives the industry the necessary security that contamination of the next load is avoided. This applies in particular to the transport of food or feed, since transport hygiene is paramount here. In order to increase safety during transport, food transport containers should be regularly subjected to a suitability test according to ENFIT-DIN 10 502-1.
Logistic- and transport companies are FBOs "Food/Feed Business Operators" when transporting food or animal feed. In this role, they are responsible for ensuring that the transport units are only cleaned in suitable and certified cleaning stations. In order to meet the responsibility of logistic- and transport companies, ENFIT has developed the "ENFIT HQF certification". The certification is carried out by authorized and specially trained auditors according to the ENFIT standard.
