Rhenus Group brings fresh vertical to Latin America

Rhenus

Chile has become the first country in the Latin America region to become part of the Rhenus perishable vertical, providing temperature-sensitive transportation.

Rhenus Fresh is a tailored logistics solution created specifically for the transportation of perishable goods globally. With a dedicated team spearheading the venture, Rhenus Chile will provide fresh logistics services for fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and other time-critical perishables.

This development represents a significant milestone for the company in Latin America, expanding the organisation’s expertise in perishable cargo while leveraging the country’s growing demand for the exports of fresh products.

“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our fresh logistics services into Chile, a country known for its dynamic and diverse agricultural sector,” said the Managing Director of Rhenus Chile, Esmerlyn Farias. “We take pride in our mission to boost our exports to countries like China, Spain and the Netherlands, and this expansion is a testament to our commitment to providing innovative logistics solutions to our customers in the region and beyond.”

Chile is strategically positioned to serve domestic and international markets, ranking among the world’s largest fruit exporters. According to the Chilean Fruit Exporters Association, Chile exports more than 2.6 million tonnes of fruit annually to more than 100 countries worldwide.

Rhenus Chile’s significant trade in fresh perishables with Asia highlights the growing demand for cherries, peaches, blueberries, and other fruits shipped to China. Meanwhile, exports of fruits such as apples, avocados, grapes, and kiwi to the Netherlands, Germany and Spain are in high demand, while meats like lamb and wagyu are sent to Hong Kong and Canada.

Rhenus Fresh has said it will soon expand to other Latin American countries.
