Sea transport of lime fruit requires a transport solution with temperature controlled containers suitable for foodstuffs so that their properties and quality are maintained.
IFA handles at least one reefer container import per week with a total of about 15,000 kg of limes each time.

When the containers are offloaded readiness is essential in order to coordinate customs operations in the shortest possible time and to organize subsequent collection and delivery of the reefer container to destination using temperature controlled vehicles which maintain the required temperature inside the container until delivery. Even the choice of the qualified transporter is therefore crucial.

In recent years the demand for exotic products from Italian Wholesalers has been gradually increasing. IFA has responded to this increase in demand through the selection of a South American agent whom it supports locally allowing it to manage shipments and deliver exotic fruit to the Italian market and beyond.
