MUMBAI: Maersk Line, the global containerized division of the Maersk Group enables the first store door reefer import of confectionery for Perfetti Van Melle (India) Pvt Ltd into Rudrapur, Uttarakhand. The consignment of confectionery (gums) which left Leixoes, Portugal on the 17th of July reached Rudrapur in Uttarakhand on the 8th of September.
At present, reefer importers are currently importing to port and then trucking the cargo to their warehouses. This involves multiple vendor co-ordinations which affect their overall increased cost of logistics. Added to this are shortages of trucks during peak seasons which impact their production cycle.
Through Maersk Line’s pioneering offering, these challenges will be a thing of the past. The transportation time between the point of origin and the port reduce considerably, facilitating a one-stop solution closer to the place of origin of cargo.
Mr. Steve Felder, MD – Maersk Line (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Maldives), said, “Our constant efforts to provide a single-window simplified supply chain platform have enabled us to successfully carry out the First ever Store door of reefer import. We are committed to providing unmatched customer-centric services. This does synergize well with our belief of enabling the India growth story by providing customers with a definitive, cost-effective and viable logistical solution,” said a Maersk Line release.
