Does anyone know if they re-top-iced water mellons shipped north in ventilated box cars? Would they do it at a FGEX re-icing facility by just rolling up along side of the ice-house low level dock or next to the ice crusher? Would they add more straw first?
I didn't know that ventilated box cars were iced for produce. Is this documented?
