Logistics and distribution
There are two departures a week from the Canary Islands. This is done in close collaboration with the export organisation there and is carried out using large conventional refrigerated ships. The ships sail from Las Palmas via Southampton to Rotterdam. In addition to these ships, other means of transport such as containers and trucks are used during the season.
In Rotterdam Fortuna Frutos works with its own regular logistics provider ‘Opticool’. This partner unloads the ships, containers and trucks and places the pallets in a climate-controlled Fortuna Frutos warehouse. Both the quality and the logistical agreements are checked by our own staff. The goods are shipped from the warehouse to final destinations throughout Europe. This is done with climate-controlled vehicles, either arranged by the end-customer themselves or arranged as required by Fortuna Frutos.
