With an annual harvest time that can be as short as six weeks, farmers and exporters require a flexible shipping partner that can scale up rapidly during peak mango season and provide the necessary containers and equipment to keep the fragile fruit cool and safe throughout its journey.
Mangoes are fragile, perishable goods that must be picked, handled and transported with the highest level of care. Retailers expect the fruit to arrive in perfect condition, with consistent colour, shape, taste and aroma, and free from fruit flies. We employ high-quality reefer services and equipment to keep your fruit in perfect condition during transport, from packing plant to warehouse and supermarket shelf.
From the African continent to Mexico, India and Thailand, we provide a tailor-made combination of inland transportation and shipping services for mango exporters around the world. Our customer support team is always on hand to help, including assisting with documentation and regulatory compliance, while our cutting-edge technology enables easy tracking and monitoring of the fruit throughout its journey.
