Some of the world’s largest and most recognisable perishable goods businesses trust us to deliver on their supply chain needs across their entire value chain. We do this by offering specialised supply chain solutions such as cold chain storage in a door-to-door service. And our technology and monitoring such as our GPS tracking allows our reefer trailers and containers to provide transit quickly, hygienically and safely.
How does DP World ensure compliance with customs and regulatory requirements specific to the perishables industry?
DP World’s comprehensive perishables logistics solutions allows us to monitor goods throughout the process. For example, following the introduction of DP World CARGOES digital platform, enterprises have been able to collaborate with customs and financial institutions directly transforming container vessel waiting times from weeks to hours. This has made trade of perishable goods much more possible for those doing e-commerce.
From door-to-door reefer services to global data monitoring that can tell the temperature in a container thousands of miles away, our smart global network brings the benefit of connectivity and speed to the customers who need it most. Additionally, our global network of digitally-integrated cool-chain (10°C to 20°C) and cold-chain (-29°C to +13°C) warehouse facilities handle perishables in a secure and controlled environment.
How can I track and monitor the location and condition of my perishable goods throughout the logistics process?
Our range of tracking systems can monitor every element of the supply chain down to the temperature in our reefer containers and our world-class IT infrastructure ensures that customers have access to transparent data across all services. For example, CARGOES FLOW by DP World is an enterprise tracking tool for intermodal shipments that gives customers supply chain visibility, mitigate delays and monetary risks.
