SAM Algeciras, multimodal logistics platform located in the hinterland of the port of Algeciras, participates these days in Fruit Logistica, the most important fair in the world of perishable products. An edition that this year has taken on special relevance as it is the first to take place without the restrictions derived from the pandemic.
The event in Berlin brings together hundreds of professionals eager to learn about the most innovative methods and advances in an industry as essential as it is strategic. In this sense, the SAM Algeciras delegation -which is part of the logistics division of Alonso Group– has taken advantage of this meeting to meet with customers, collaborators and partners. A great way of networking between the different agents that form part of the supply chain.
Highest quality in the service of perishable logistics
SAM Algeciras has 5,300 square metres of facilities dedicated to refrigerated warehouses where all types of temperature-controlled operations are carried out. It has 11 cold stores with a capacity for 8,700 pallets as well as a reefer consolidation and repair unit. An optimised space with automatic systems and the best technology at the service of an essential industry. In this sense, SAM Algeciras is a key ally for the most efficient and competitive logistics in the traffic of perishable goods.
The future rail connection of the facilities is also currently being planned, which will allow the management of 750-metre multi-product trains. A commitment to intermodal transport with great benefits, both environmentally and in terms of efficiency.
The Strait of Gibraltar, a unique location
SAM Algeciras facilities are located just 1.5 kilometres from the port of Algeciras, a reference reefer distribution centre for Southern Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean. At the same time, it is a receiving port for hundreds of tonnes of perishable goods arriving from South America. The Andalusian enclave is a strategic point in world trade and has competitive transit times with more than 200 ports directly.
