Necessary services from us
Our client was interested in international shipping:
- The selection and submission of a vehicle for the transportation of perishable goods;
- Delivery of fruits by a reefer to Ukraine;
- Temperature data at every stage of transportation.
What we`ve done
Fruits are dedicated to perishable products, so first we needed to evaluate the shelf life of fruits and duration of transportation, as in the case of long transportation fruits can not be fresh. The second important point in this case – the choice of a vehicle. For this transportation Corcel provided its own car (refrigerator) of Euro-5 standard. It was very important for our client that the fruits have been transported in a refrigerator with a temperature registrator. Thus the customer can check the temperature rate at any stage of transportation.
Temperature rate was + 2C at all stages of transportation.
Our team has developed an optimal route of transportation, as we needed to avoid a downtime of the vehicle. There were 3 different places of loading in Spain. The first two were in the area of Huesca (at first – 4 pallets were loaded, at the second point – 14 pallets), the third point was near Lleida city (3 pallets were loaded). Fixing and securing process was maintained by our driver.
Our client conducted customs clearance in Spain himself.
It was important to maintain the temperature regime into the truck and to deliver the goods to Ukraine without delay, as fruit are perishable goods.
Specification of transportation:
- We provided our own reefer with temperature registrator for this shipment;
- Transportation took place in the “cold chain”;
- Client was tracking temperature data at every stage of transportation;
- The customer himself spent the customs clearance in Spain.
Transportation of perishable foods (including fruits) is a process that requires attention to selection of a vehicle, maintenance of temperature regime. Our main task was to deliver the goods to the customer intact.
Corcel successfully delivered fruits from Spain to Ukraine.
