AGRO Merchants Group, a world leader in logistics and cold storage solutions, announced its plan to open a border inspection point (BIP) at its cold store in Valencia. This represents a significant improvement in AGRO's service offer in Iberia and a big investment in infrastructure, laboratories, and offices in Valencia. The BIP has achieved all regulatory approvals and will be fully operational in mid-October.
"This is a significant achievement for AGRO, which involved the collaboration of many people throughout the organization," said Raul Fores Valles, the general director of AGRO Merchants Iberia. “I am proud that our team achieved this important milestone for the business. We also appreciate the cooperation of the Customs and Port Authorities, the Ministry of Health, Agriculture, Commerce, and other public sectors that were essential so that we could launch this important project.”
Juan Jose Tobarra, the General Manager of AGRO Merchants Valencia, stated: “This project presents great and new opportunities for our operations in Valencia. We are now in a unique position to help our customers improve their supply chain and overall delivery times by reducing the handling of the products."
AGRO has a large presence in the Iberian region. The company runs four facilities in Spain (Algeciras, Valencia, and two cold rooms in Barcelona) and another four facilities in Portugal (Lisbon, Oporto, Leixões, and Sines). In addition to offering storage and transportation services at different temperatures, the company also offers value-added services such as order preparation, repackaging, and a variety of import and export services.
