Extend your product's shelf life!

Worried about your food spoiling before it even reaches the shelf? Or freezing in the winter during transit? Or even worse, thawing while on the move? Whether you’re shipping from one city to another, one country to another, or even one continent to another, you don’t have to worry about your goods spoiling or being damaged in transit.



Our Competitive Advantage

We have a few simple rules when it comes to moving food and beverages – keep it moving, keep it safe, and keep it delicious. The first two rules you probably know about very well already, But how do we keep it delicious you may wonder…

Speedy Delivery

Because a day saved in transit is a day gained on the shelves we make sure our scheduled railway takes your goods to destination as quickly as possible. We have some of the fastest transit times in the industry, along with a 90% on-time arrival rate.

Exceptional reefer equipment

If you want your products to stay ice cold, then you can chill with CargoCool, our reefer service. We also have a state of the art monitoring system and team, which ensure we safely deliver your product in mint condition.

Services

CargoCool

On the other hand, if you want your products to stay ice cold, then you can chill with CargoCool, our refrigerated service.
