Because of this global production system and marketplace, as well as the high perish-ability of cut flowers, air transport has been the transport system of choice. Although air transport is rapid compared to surface modes (truck, sea container, etc.), the nature of cut flowers and foliage leads to their rapid deterioration even during the relatively few hours that they are in transit when transported by air. It has frequently been demonstrated that transport of flowers in surface modes that permit maintenance of the cold chain results in better turn-outs than air freight with uncontrolled temperature environments.
