Madrid has become the world capital of the fruit and vegetable sector these days. Hundreds of professionals from 130 countries have gathered at Fruit Attraction, held in the IFEMA facilities, to present their offer aimed at a key industry with a great exporting vocation.
A SAM Algeciras‘s representation, a multimodal logistics platform located in the hinterland of the port of Algeciras, did not want to miss the opportunity to present its storage, distribution and transport services for this type of products. A professional and complete offer aimed at an essential sector. The company, part of Alonso Group logistics division, has 5,300 square metres of facilities where they carry out all kinds of temperature-controlled operations for refrigerated and frozen goods. It also has 11 cold stores, more than 8,700 pallet capacity and 15 loading and unloading docks for vehicles and containers. Another of its great advantages is the possibility of consolidating or repairing reefer containers.
In recent years SAM Algeciras has achieved the most important quality certifications currently in force: IFS, OEA, SHC Ecological, SAE or RGSEAA. It is also worth highlighting the PIF certification, which allows cold treatments and sanitary inspections for the export of vegetables and vegetable products to third countries. A great guarantee for outstanding logistics.
A strategic location
Another of the great advantages of SAM Algeciras is its strategic location. It is situated just over a kilometre from the port of Algeciras, one of the most important ports in the southern Mediterranean, which has regular connections with the most important ports in the world. A gateway for all goods arriving from South and Central America as well as perishable goods from the Maghreb countries, only 15 kilometres away from the Iberian Peninsula.
In the event, SAM Algeciras representation did not miss the opportunity to establish new synergies, meet with clients and analyse the general situation of the fruit and vegetable sector. A context marked by rising energy costs, the complexity of supply chains or the climatic crisis such as the drought.
