DACHSER Food Logistics welcomes a new partner on the Iberian Peninsula
Logifrio, the leading provider for temperature-controlled food transport on the Iberian Peninsula, is a new partner in the European Food Network.
As a result, the European Food Network's vivengo product family, the standard for transnational transport, is coming into its own for food shipments to and from Spain, Portugal, and Andorra. It offers various product lines with fixed transit times as well as defined information services, such as electronically available status information and proof of delivery for each shipment. The shortest transit time between pickup in Germany and delivery in Spain is two days.
“The partnership with Logifrio is another important step in the development of the European Food Network,” explains Alfred Miller, Managing Director DACHSER Food Logistics. “With the expansion of the vivengo product world into these key markets, we are bolstering our claim as the leading partner network for transnational food transport throughout Europe.”
We are delighted to be part of the European Food Network and to be able to provide standardized transport services for all of Europe, starting immediately, for those of our customers who operate internationally.Fernando García Villalobos, Managing Director of Logifrio
With 30 of its own and partner-owned locations, Logifrio has a presence on the Spanish mainland, the Balearic and Canary Islands, Portugal, and Andorra, where upwards of 20,000 customers receive regular shipments of fresh and frozen food and shelf-stable goods.
The family company, which is headquartered in Barcelona, owns 400 vehicles and has 115,000 square meters of warehouse space; it is certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and 14001. With its 600 employees, it generated EUR 64 million in revenue in 2014.
European Food Network now with 13 partners
Fernando García Villalobos, Managing Director of Logifrio: “We are delighted to be part of the European Food Network and to be able to provide standardized transport services for all of Europe, starting immediately, for those of our customers who operate internationally.”
With its 13 partners, 8 associate members, and regular line haul services among 29 European countries, the European Food Network is the most comprehensive network for food transport in Europe. This collaborative network, which was founded in 2013 under DACHSER's system leadership, has established itself successfully on the market. For example, export tonnage of groupage cargo transports by the network grew around 15 percent in 2015 compared to the previous year.
