PROTECT YOUR FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN

 

Prevent waste of food
during storage and transportation

 

 

 

Whether you want to export or import vegetables, fresh fruit, pasta, wine or cheese, proper protection of the quality of the food products is necessary. Often, food products are transported in a conditioned environment in order to comply with the legal regulations surrounding the transport and storage of these products. But some products are transported to the other side of the world by regular container transport. In all cases, it is important to provide the transport with the right protection equipment to minimize loss of product.

 

Fruit and Vegetables

The logistics process of AGF products starts at the farmer, goes through packaging and transport companies to the wholesaler or retailer and finally to the consumer. During these links, products are exposed to all kinds of risks, such as temperature and moisture. Cooperation, as well as the right protective equipment, is necessary to prevent AGF shipments from being rejected and thrown away. Praxas has been serving many AGF customers for over 20 years with the following solutions:

Meat, fish and poultry

The refrigerated transport of meat, fish and poultry is a challenge, especially when these products are transported to the other side of the world. Throughout the supply chain, measures must be taken to prevent losses. After all, spoiled meat products are harmful to health. Refrigerated transport is therefore a requirement. Depending on the type of product, the necessary temperatures are maintained. To make this measurable, temperature loggers are added to the cargo.

Dough products

Dough products such as bread, cookies, flour and other powdered products, are very sensitive to moisture. Yet these products are often transported by shipping container. When cookies are affected by moisture, they become soft and, if transported for a long time, can even develop mold. Powdered products will clump together when the environment they are in becomes humid. The result is a rejected shipment and an unsatisfied customer. Proper protection is therefore a necessity in order to guarantee the quality of dough products.

Beverages

It is not uncommon for something to go wrong during the transport of products such as wine or beer. Temperature differences during transport lead to loss of quality of wine. Or labels, wine boxes or packaging become soaked due to a too humid environment. When this happens, a shipment is quickly rejected. Refrigerated transport is a solution, but costly. The use of container insulation, such as the Praxas Container Pack, is a good and affordable interim solution.

Dairy

Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, butter and eggs, are usually transported in reefer containers. This ensures that the temperature is maintained during transport. Nevertheless, maintaining the quality of food products remains a logistical challenge. For example, a lot of cheese is exported from the Netherlands to the Middle East. Cooperation between the various links and insight into the supply chain minimize the risk of losses. Real-time monitoring with our track & trace solution makes this possible. 

Hospitality

Restaurant, fast food chains, catering companies.... Hospitality companies are subject to strict regulations when it comes to the storage and processing of food. Typically, cold rooms or cabinets are used, where a temperature measurement of environment and products is taken several times a day. This is then recorded manually. To make this more efficient, online temperature monitoring is also used. In this case, the temperatures are recorded centrally and stored in the cloud.

If you export steel or products made from steel or aluminium, you must consider the risks associated with maritime transport. After all, steel is a product that is very susceptible to damage. Imagine that your customer receives your goods and discovers rust damage for a moment. Of course, you want to avoid that at all costs. Your reputation and your relationship with the customer are at stake.

Sustainability is being dealt with more and more consciously in logistics supply chains. This also applies to transports that are equipped with desiccants. By applying desiccants during transport, cargo damage and therefore waste is reduced. Waste of goods, but think also of the waste as a result of moisture damage.

Remco has a lot of experience in the logistics sector. He has worked for companies such as DPD and DHL. At Praxas, Remco is responsible for the existing customer portfolio within the sectors Transport & Logistics and Fresh Produce. In addition, he is actively seeking partners to work with in order to achieve the goal of 0% waste in the logistics chain.
