Fresh produce is in demand all around the globe, all year long. As consumer behavior changes, markets shift and global demand grows. Success in the perishables industry depends on a logistics provider that can ensure perishables are safely and efficiently steered through the cool chain on the way to their final destination.

At Panalpina, we know exactly how much love growers put into the cultivation and production of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

We also know how difficult it is for wholesalers and retailers to procure fresh products from all over the world punctually to the consumer in peak condition.The Panalpina Perishables Network provides an unrivaled travel experience for perishables. This experience begins long before the actual journey though. Our main concern is providing a tailor-made quality service for products we care about and quality can only be assured if there is in-depth knowledge of a product. What sets us apart is our ability to demonstrate “product empathy”.

Product empathy is understanding:

  • how the product is farmed or grown
  • what conditions the product needs to ensure freshness is maintained
  • the product’s transportation requirements
  • the specific export/import criteria in regards to customs duties, taxes and health regulations
  • how geographical and socio- economic consumption trends affect the market

The Panalpina Perishables Team

Stefan Karlen, Chief Executive Officer

"Panalpina’s perishables footprint is getting bigger by the day as we continuously build specialized teams and add transport routes all over the world. Our Perishables Network currently spans over 20 key countries, with a clear plan to double the network to cover all regions."

Karl Weyeneth, Chief Operating Officer

"By 2020 we aim to be the preferred global supplier of perishables logistics, offering our customers in both origin and destination countries complete end-to-end solutions on a global scale."

Colin Wells, Global Head Speciality Vertical Perishables

"Perishables by their very nature are complicated products that require complex handling and shipment processes between origin and destination that will preserve their freshness. And while the perishables business is a high volume business, the primary focus of Panalpina’s perishables experts is on maintaining the integrity of the product moved, not on the volumes."

Quint Wilken, Regional Head of Perishables Europe

"In recent months we have expanded our end-to-end capabilities on the destination side in Europe by acquiring smaller local companies with a great reputation in the handling of perishables. We are systematically increasing our perishables footprint for the benefit of our customers and the end consumers."
