Schenker offers French winegrowers refrigerated ocean freight

Düsseldorf, Germany:  DB Schenker Logistics will launch a service for high-quality wine from French producers at the ProWein trade fair in Düsseldorf (March 24 to 26).

An in-house express pick-up service will shorten the lead time between wineries and export platforms and ensure that the valuable and sensitive cargo is less affected by variations in temperature, Schenker says. Wine is protected in insulated-roof trailers then placed in 15°C refrigerated ocean freight containers ready for export.

The express pick-up service is also be used to export premium wine via air freight.

For exports to China  – now the world’s most important market for French wine – Japan, Korea, Australia and the US, a new less-than-container-load groupage service is also available, using refrigerated containers. The use of these containers also helps to avoid changes in temperature during the voyage across the world’s oceans.

There are also plans to consolidate shipments of wine and spirits from neighboring Switzerland, Germany, Spain and northern Italy.

DB Schenker offers five options for monitoring global freight shipments and documenting the temperature in the container. The premium option enables real-time monitoring via the internet, using GPS coordinates. Parameters such as temperature, humidity, acceleration force, movement, vibration and inclination angle are continuously monitored. The device reports any attempt to open the container.
