This is a very simple question with rather a complication set of answers. Movement of some molecules or substances across a membrane only increases between the temperatures of 1 to 37 degrees Celsius (in most organism/cellular systems). At temp. greater than 37 Celsius the membrane proteins involved in transport become denatured. One has to consider the main processes of movement of substances across a membrane i.e ranging from passive diffusion and osmosis and including active transport systems and end/exocytosis etc.
