Shipping | Food

Whether your goods are in bulk, liquid, or bagged form, our experts for food will ensure that our service meets the highest shipping and delivery standards.

Agricultural products, food and beverages often have to cover huge distances from the country of origin to their final destination.

Importing and exporting agricultural products safely and efficiently is often a complex process, requiring cross-border collaboration and in-depth knowledge of customs and phytosanitary regulations - ensuring compliance and avoiding delays.

Our Services

Cargo Protection Solutions

We provide the following anchoring and fixing solutions to preserve your products and prevent cargo shifting inside the container:

  • Airbags: beverage pallets cannot be stacked because the upper layer's weight might damage the lower one. So we inflate raffia or cardboard bags with air and fit them into the container's empty spaces to fill gaps and stop the cargo from moving.
  • Protection bars: goods anchoring system placed inside the container that prevents the cargo from shifting.
  • Slings: tape that holds and grips goods so they don't swing inside the container.

 

Temperature and HumidityControl Solutions

We provide the following temperature and humidity control solutions to ensure your products reach their destination without losing any of their properties:

  • Thermal insulation: prevents outside temperature changes from affecting the inside and protects beverages from humidity and condensation. The most common types of thermal insulation are thermal blankets or thermal panels for the entire container and thermal covers for individual pallets.
  • Reefers: recommended for high-quality products, very sensitive goods, or destinations with extreme weather conditions. They control temperature, ventilation, and humidity throughout the logistics chain.
  • Non-operating reefers (NOR): reefers that are not operative, i.e., not refrigerated, with isothermal walls that reduce the impact of sudden temperature changes.
  • Thermographs / Iso kits/ Ryan: devices fitted inside containers which measure temperature across the logistics chain and ensure we've chosen the best option for transporting your beverages.
