Safe solutions for sensitive goods
The consumer goods market consists of individuals’ desire to purchase products to meet their personal needs or those of their homes.
There are two types of markets for consumer goods, which can be distinguished by the type of goods involved:
a) The perishable goods market
Consumer goods such as food and drink products are particularly sensitive cargo. Tangible goods of this type are destroyed almost immediately when they are used. At Transfesa, we are aware of the enormous complexity of the supply chain for consumer goods, in which the goods are continually exposed to risk. To meet the specific needs of this sector, at Transfesa, we have designed a range of specific solutions that ensure the safe and timely arrival of this sensitive material at any destination.
The market for perishable products includes transporting reefers (refrigerated containers) for frozen products or those needing to be transported at a controlled temperature.
b) The durable goods market (general cargo)
In the durable goods market, the products are tangible and are not destroyed immediately when used, and as such they can be used on a more continuous basis. At Transfesa, we design and manage specific transportation and logistics solutions for these products, including electrical household appliances and industrial machinery.
