First Peruvian blueberry air charter into Newark, NJ
The blueberries originated in the Trujillo area in North Peru and were transported by truck into Frio Aereo for consolidation, then flown out of Jorge Chavez International airport in Lima. Traditionally, blueberries from Peru are imported into the US via ocean containers with a transit time of 17 days. Currently blueberries are also arriving into JFK via passenger flights, which is limited to a few pallets on board at a time. Chartering allows the transport of over 100 pallets in one flight, thereby making this a more efficient and effective mode of transportation.
“Chartering makes so much more sense economically speaking versus passenger flights,” Maria Bermudez, VP continues. “Furthermore, this new channel benefits the consumer since it optimizes the freshness and increases the availability of quality product in the US market.”
Building on the success of this venture, charters are expected to continue into Newark International with anticipated growth in future seasons.
This marks the second historic achievement between Advance Customs Brokers and Camposol with importing fresh produce into the US market. Their first milestone together was clearing the first container of cold-treated Peruvian grapes into the Port of Everglades in November of 2013.
