FX Logistics, the leading perishable logistics operator in Zimbabwe, has commissioned an extension to its Europort Cold Storage Facility (based on Harare’s RGM International Airport) providing the hortiexport industry in Zimbabwe with access to a purpose-built ocean freight handling facility.
This investment was made in anticipation of growth in demand for ocean freight capabilities for blueberries and other horti crops and has been designed to exceed the exacting cold chain demands for highly perishable cargo moving by ocean.
FX Logistics now has the capability to load out six sea freight reefer containers per day, with this capability up and running ahead of the 2022 ocean freight season.
Europort now boasts a total cold store capacity of 4,600 square metres, offering four dedicated controlled temperature rooms, seven forced air cooling stations and two vacuum coolers.
Allied to its range of air, road and ocean forwarding products – offered in conjunction with network partners at Airflo, Tiger Freight and Go Reefers – FX Logistics can provide a full range of cold chain logistics solutions for Zimbabwean exporters to worldwide destinations.
Rob Killick, FX General Manager and Director, comments that “this development further underscores our efforts to bring a world class perishable freight forwarding solution to our clients. We look forward to next year’s ocean freight season.”
