FRUIT LOGISTICA 2020
2020 marks the third anniversary of the Luxembourg Pavilion showcasing Luxembourgish know-how as well as products and services at FRUIT LOGISTICA, the leading industry get-together for perishables and fresh produce businesses.
From February 5th to 7th 2020, Arthur Welter, Cargolux, LuxAirport and Grosbusch Fruit & Vegetables will join the “Fresh Hub Luxembourg” national pavilion organised by the Ministry of the Economy and the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.
FRUIT LOGISTICA is a perfect base for networking with key decision-makers and attracts over 75,000 visitors and 3,000 exhibitors. The fair provides a complete overview of the latest innovations, products and services at every level of the international supply chain.
Luxembourg has an important role to play in a growing business
With its high value adding services, Luxembourg certainly has a role to play in the specialised fruit and vegetables sector. Dedicated companies offer professional cargo handling for sensitive produce and cool zones. Next to the extensive road feeder system, Luxembourg provides specialised players with modern warehouses like those at Grosbusch and Arthur Welter and dedicated hubs like the Cargocenter at the airport and the new multimodal rail platform in Bettembourg.
70% of the EU market can be reached within one day
Moreover, fast lane solutions are readily available, as time and cost-efficiency play a crucial role. Arthur Welter’s pre-loading team at Luxembourg’s airport guarantee the preservation of the cool-chain with their trucks ready to quickly load goods and distribute them from the airport the last mile in temperature-controlled vehicles. The multilingual service at the airport and easy access to customs and release agencies allow for tailor-made solutions compliant with clients’ needs.
Over the past two years, more than 6.4 billion kilos of fresh produce have been transported globally via air. Top commodities are fresh food, perishable non-foods, frozen and cured foods. Cargolux alone shipped over 400.000 tons of perishables over the past five years.
