Nova Fresh Logistics and foodcareplus announced an all-in-one logistics service for the seafood industry at the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels, Belgium recently.
Specializing in delivery and distribution of food products, foodcareplus has expertise in reefer shipping. Nova Fresh Logistics provides international perishable handling services. Together, the companies now offer an integrated seafood logistics service, managing all requirements from origin to destination, including inspections, customs, and throughput.
Seafood has a complicated shipping process with numerous parties involved in transport, storage, processing, and inspection. With a single point of contact within foodcareplus and Nova Fresh Logistics, customers enjoy a simplified and ultimately manageable logistics process.
With experience in shipping and handling of perishables, foodcareplus and Nova Fresh Logistics also eliminate many costly risks inherent to seafood transport. In addition to complying with legislation and regulations for nations and regions the shipments pass through, they ensure that documentation is correct at all times. This reduces the risk of extra charges, potential delays and loss of cargo.
Finally, foodcareplus and Nova Fresh Logistics also provide a clear estimate of all logistics costs, eliminating unexpected additional collateral costs such as container detention, demurrage, and storage fees.
Nova Fresh Logistics and foodcareplus will specifically work together on seafood shipments from the Nordic waters (Barents Sea, Norway, and Greenland), first to Antwerp for throughput, then to Asia for processing, and finally back to Europe for distribution.
The two Belgian-based companies will also work with customers to use the port of Antwerp as an efficient gateway for Southern and Eastern Europe. These companies have previously worked together on projects involving transporting and storing food products, including butter from the United States, New Zealand, and Australia; poultry from Poland to the Caribbean; and mozzarella cheese from Italy to Taiwan.
