Fish and Seafood

A fruitful partnership spanning two decades

For more than two decades, Daltex and Maersk have developed a unique partnership to deliver optimal quality fresh produce from Daltex’s farms in the hinterlands of Egypt to more than 70 countries around the world.

With the changing supply chain ecosystem and evolving demands for e-commerce, learn how our innovative cold chain solutions helped Daltex to keep up with the market dynamics to meet peak season demands and ensure seamless delivery, all the way.

Petals & procedures

IPAFFS implementation in Great Britain has introduced new challenges for cold storage and importers. While commendable in intent, IPAFFS added logistics complexity, especially for the flower industry.

Flowers demand top-notch service for timely, pristine arrival due to their temperature-sensitive nature. A seamless cold chain journey is crucial to preserve their quality from farm to destination, with peak seasons adding pressure.

Discover how Maersk ensured on-time fresh flower delivery, meeting customer and UK supermarket expectations while complying with rigorous customs regulations.

Fish & seafood

Fish and seafood need constant monitoring and consistent temperature control that only a connected supply cold chain can solve.

For customer Echebastar – a Spanish tuna fishery – transparency and reliability are crucial to ensure their tuna gets the speciality care it needs. This was made possible through state-of-the-art Super Freezers, and Remote Container Management allowed the fishery to monitor the entire production and supply chain.

We understand what’s at stake when your fresh catch is racing against shelf life, and therefore, the level of care and innovation that goes into protecting your cargo is of paramount importance to us.
