Exporting Pears from Antwerp to China

Challenge: The conference pear is firm and well suited to export, but short transit times are nevertheless very important. Also, the cost of transport plays an important role, as it makes up some 10% of the retail price of the pear.

Solution: The port of Antwerp is geographically close to the fruit auctions. Moreover, the transit times within the port are shorter than in other European ports. Products can be delivered to the port only 18 hours before the ship sails. And the availability of many regular liner services reduces the variability in the supply chain.

Results: Thanks to good collaboration with the various players in the port and the strategic location, the customer is able to transport its pears in a fast and flexible way to China.

About the Solution Provider: The Port of Antwerp is by all means the leading European integrated maritime and logistics hub and second largest seaport in Europe. Antwerp is a multifunctional port, where all types of cargo (containers, break bulk, dry bulk, liquid bulk) are loaded, unloaded, stored and handled in a most efficient way.
