As from 1 September 2021, Fresh Connection and FrigorExpress will be working together in the fields of transport, warehousing and more. Fresh Connection’s expertise in the areas of expedition, cold storage and customs handling fits in perfectly with FrigorExpress’ speciality, namely refrigerated transport.
This cooperation greatly broadens the scope of both companies: Fresh Connection can more easily call on FrigorExpress' (own!) rolling stock, and similarly, the Fresh Connection warehouses in Meer – close to the Dutch border – are at the disposal of FrigorExpress.
Although there was already a keen interest in a partnership before the corona crisis, it only gained momentum in the summer of 2021. At the beginning of September, the first FrigorExpress trucks arrived at our new refrigerated warehouse in the Wenenstraat in Meer.
Wouter de Koning, manager of Fresh Connection: 'With this partnership, we can perfectly offer a one-stop-shop approach. Our customers will benefit and we will optimise the space in our warehouses. Moreover, we are both convinced of the importance of high service levels for our customers. Through this partnership with FrigorExpress we want to take the next step.'
Rob de Feiter, responsible for FrigorExpress Netherlands: 'Our activities are perfectly in line with each other. If Fresh Connection needs wheels, we can instantly help out. And if we are faced with a challenge in storing our freight, we can turn to Fresh Connection. FrigorExpress and Fresh Connection actually often share the same customers. With this cooperation, we can offer them an even better total package.'
