Agro Merchants extends services through Port of Savannah
“We are very excited to work with the AGRO Merchants team on our Peruvian grape program in Savannah. Their superb customer service has been evident since day one and their reputation as an expert third-party service provider in the perishable industry is well founded,” says Jose Antonio Martinez, Chief Operating Officer of Divine Flavor.
The fresh Peruvian table grapes will be delivered to retailers located in the Southeast and Midwest U.S. Besides cost savings in transportation, the proximity of the Port of Savannah to Divine Flavor’s customers will save up to five days in delivery, allowing retailers to offer the freshest products to their customers.
In response to the rising market demand for fresh produce to be handled through the growing Savannah seaport, AGRO modified part of the nearly 400,000 square feet of the Nordic frozen facility into a chilled refrigerated space. The converted space is an interim solution while the company completes construction of a new facility in the Port of Savannah.
To ensure the process AGRO engaged with Lucca Cold Storage, a member of AGRO Merchants Group, offering cold storage and value-added services supporting the fresh produce industry at the Port of Philadelphia.
CBP Agriculture and USDA inspections were completed on site at Nordic, which is now a certified Container Freight Station and legal extension of the Port of Savannah. “Completing the inspections on site at Nordic is vitally important to our customers and to AGRO. It allows our customers to import fresh produce from all over the world and ensure the cold chain is never broken,” said Don Schoenl, President of AGRO Merchants Group North America.
