Potatoes & Onions

Focus on your supply chain

The passion you have for growing potatoes or onions, we have for transporting them. 

Foodcareplus offers importers or exporters of seed or ware potatoes and onions excellent service. We offer high-quality transport and follow the seasons and destinations.

We notice a growing volume worldwide, both for processing and fresh consumption of potatoes and onions.

The significant volumes under control of Foodcareplus help in tariff negotiations and optimisation through the use of intermodal transport. Therefore we obtain an optimal cost price per transported ton.

Transparency, quality control, and speed are the three main pillars of the integrated solution that we offer when transporting onions and potatoes.

Before the shipment:

  • Check whether the onions or potatoes comply with the agreed specifications
  • Drawing up transport documents and third-party control documents.
During transport:

 

  • Sea or air freight to the destination or transhipment.
  • Global transport monitoring.
Before and during the delivery:

  • Verification of documents with the food authorities.
  • Phytosanitary inspection or drawing up of phytosanitary transport documents.
  • Drawing up of transit and customs documents.
  • Direct delivery with generators or transhipment with refrigerated transport.

 

QUALITY ASSURANCE

When transporting potatoes or onions, we ensure that the tubers are loaded into the container following the sea or air freight requirements before they leave on their journey.

Foodcareplus is renowned for its low claim ratio because of its rigorous selection of logistics providers.

TRANSPARENCY

Our blockchain platform, which we use to control all our orders, is available to all the parties involved. While the container is being loaded, all the reports and certificates are uploaded and shared. As soon as the container departs, you can consult all the other transport documents on the platform and upload documents yourself.

SPEED

The faster the potatoes or onions arrive at their final destination, the better. Our transhipment platforms ensure that you can always rely on the fastest and most reliable routing, with air or sea freight. The entire import starts to process a few days before the ship arrives.

This is our way of ensuring that the entire phytosanitary and customs process is finalised no later than one day after the arrival of the sea or air freight and that the tubers can be delivered to the end customer.
