FOCUS ON YOUR SWEET PATATO SUPPLY CHAIN

Sweet potatoes

Our service tailored to your supply chain

Foodcareplus offers sweet potato importers and exporters superb service, following the seasons in the different countries with you, so that you can supply tasty sweet potatoes to your customers throughout the year. We experience growing volumes worldwide for both processing and fresh consumption of sweet potatoes.

This delicate product requires high-quality transport. Thanks to the significant volumes under foodcareplus’ control, we can negotiate the cost price of transport and offer optimisation through the use of intermodal transport.

Transparency, quality control, and speed are the three main pillars of the integrated solution that we offer for avocado transports. We monitor them from door to door.

Prior to the shipment:

  • Check whether the tubers meet the agreed specifications; in particular, whether the sweet potatoes have been properly dried and brushed after harvesting.
  • Check the duration of the period between harvesting and loading of the container.
  • Check that the relative humidity remained below certain standards during storage and transshipment.
  • Check whether the packaging agreements and standards are met.
  • Optional accredited lab tests.
During transport:

  • Optimised transport via intermodal transport or via transshipment to the export ports.
  • Maximum load weight per container.
  • Sea or air freight to the destination or transshipment.
  • 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 transshipment with refrigerated transport.

 

QUALITY ASSURANCE

When transporting sweet potatoes, we ensure that the tubers are loaded into the container in accordance with sea or air freight requirements before the sweet potatoes are leaving 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 sweet potatoes arrive at their final destination, the better. Our transshipment 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 shipment 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.
