Foodcareplus and Nova Fresh join forces in new seafood logistics service

Brussels, Belgium: Foodcareplus and Nova Fresh Logistics have teamed up to provide an all-in-one logistics service for the seafood industry.

The companies have decided to combine their expertise in the shipping, handling and distribution of perishable goods to offer cargo owners complete cost control in the highly regulated and complex area of seafood logistics.

Specifically, the companies will provide customers with a clear estimate of all logistics costs, eliminating unexpected additional collateral costs such as container detention, demurrage and storage fees.

Foodcareplus specialises in the delivery and distribution of food products with a specific expertise in reefer shipping. Nova Fresh Logistics provides international perishable handling services.

Together, the companies now offer a completely integrated seafood logistics service, managing all related requirements from origin to destination, including inspections, customs and throughput.

The firms will 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 companies will also actively work with customers to use the port of Antwerp as an efficient gateway for South and Eastern Europe. In this central location in the heart of Europe, Nova Fresh Logistics provides a high standard of storage facilities and a long experience with the shipping and handling of food.

“The strategic partnership between Foodcareplus and Nova Fresh Logistics was formed in response to customer requests for a premium, one-stop service for seafood transport, processing and distribution,” says Steve Alaerts, general sales manager of Foodcareplus. “The collaboration with Nova Fresh Logistics allows us to offer a unique all-encompassing solution that meets individual customer requirements and challenges.”
