Boosting supply chain speeds for fruits and vegetables

Bridging the gaps between farm and port

Farming and cultivation require a lot of hard work. It only makes sense for your logistics to work just as hard to get your produce to market in pristine condition. One of the main challenges is the distance between farm and port. Not only does this increase transit time by up to 2 days, but also increases the risk of delays by road, which could lead to missed shipments.

For us getting closer to origin is key. As a global integrator, Maersk is in a unique position to provide a differentiated integrated logistics solution that includes safer and faster pick up from source, tying up with inland rail services and setting up warehousing closer to farms. Different geographies demand a unique solution and it’s our job to find the easiest, safest and fastest way to get your produce to the port.

Track your goods at every step

Fresh produce can be affected by multiple factors like temperature and humidity. Visibility solutions like Captain Peter with Remote Container Management help to keep an eye on the condition, location and status of your precious and delicate cargo. This enables you to make faster and better solutions to get your produce to the right markets, at the right time for the best price.

Innovative cold chain logistics

Refrigerated logistics is a highly demanding business. The pressure to respond to changes increases year after year. Thus, innovation is at the heart of cold chain logistics. It could mean removing a stop from your cold chain journey to improve time to market, focusing on improving variable delivery speeds, or even finding a solution to open a new market for your product.

Cold chain storage solutions

Considering your goods spend most of their journey in a container, it becomes imperative to ensure they are kept in optimum condition. Therefore, the level of care and innovation that goes into a Maersk container is of paramount importance to us.
