Stop Going Bananas

Freightex offers simple solutions for shipping produce.
THE PROBLEM:

Complicated logistics made easy

Freightex responds to last minute orders with simplicity & ease.

The customer is one of the UK’s major supermarkets.  One of its key strategies is to buy ‘ex-works’ goods, i.e. direct from suppliers so that it can separate transport costs out and so save money.

One product that it buys from all over Europe is bananas, which are normally traded by supermarkets while still in transit from regions of origin such as Central America, South America and Africa.  The complication is that the customer does not know in advance which ship it will buy from, nor the port from which it will collect the produce.

At the same time, buying direct means the customer has to arrange transport for themselves, which can be complex. They previously used their own fleet of vehicles, but found this expensive and difficult to manage due to the unpredictable collection locations involved.

Banana facts

  • 5 billion bananas are sold in the UK every year
  • This equates to 100 per person
  • UK represents 7% of global export market

THE SOLUTION:

Freightex is responsive & flexible

 

Our wide network alongside our responsive technology allows for last minute pickups while offering competitive pricing.

The supermarket uses Freightex to handle these movements as we are always able to allocate trucks to a port, even when only specified at late notice.

While the ports are usually major European centres such as Hamburg, Antwerp, Dunkirk or Dover, occasionally they can be lesser known ports such as Savona, in Italy.

Freightex is well placed to source vehicles to transport from ports to distribution centres in central Europe, as it specialises in finding capacity at late notice and at competitive prices. This is due to its wide network of capacity across the continent, its ability to make the most of backloading opportunities and its knowledge of where available trucks are at any one time.  It is also able to utilise trucks suddenly available at the last minute due to booked loads being cancelled or delayed – this often results in very competitive pricing.

THE OUTCOME:

The Proof is in the Savings

 

We’ll streamline and simplify any of your last minute transport needs, while saving your company money.

The supermarket nominated Freightex as one of its most innovative suppliers in 2014.

While amounts are confidential, the supermarket did make substantial savings by buying direct and using such a responsive service us ours.

Freightex has managed to win new lines of business from the customer and is hopeful of winning more across Europe.
