Fresh produce dispatch software
Sell fresh produce from your phone or tablet by simply scanning pallets and inventory onto an invoice, or alternatively select from a list of available inventory, or use your Mac/PC to select what will be sold to each customer.
Sell fresh produce based on customer orders (sales orders). Each time you scan or select inventory/pallets to add to an order, the balance of that order item is reduced to allow easy and accurate dispatch based on customer orders.
Automatic and manual invoices can be created during the fresh produce dispatch process. Team members with the correct permisions can set prices for inventory (or automatically inherit fresh produce prices from customer price lists).

Peru seeks to improve the access of its mandarins to the US
Peru wants to improve the access of its mandarins to the United States. Currently, Peru can only dispatch this fruit to continental the United States, so it is conducting studies to expand that access to its islands and new territories.
This was stated by the manager of the Association of Producers of Citrus of Peru (ProCitrus), Sergio del Castillo Valderrama, who noted that Peru can not send their citrus directly to Hawaii or Puerto Rico, among other places, but that they had to first dispatch it to the continental US from where they had to forward it to these other destinations, which decreases their competitiveness.
The country is also working on the extension of the cold treatment schedule. Currently, to send mandarin to the United States, US authorities require that the fruit be at 1 degree for 15 days or at 1.5 degrees for 17 days.
"These temperatures can cause cold damage to citrus. In addition, it gives exporters a very small range of variability so the treatment can be interrupted very easily and therefore must be performed again when the containers arrive at their destination, which increases costs and harms the product (as the cold damages the fruit's skin, the fruit softens, it shortens it's shelf life, and can produce other physiological disorders)," he said.
Sergio del Castillo said they wanted their cold treatment to have a range of up to 3 degrees, as is required in shipments to Japan, as the damage to the fruit is lower than when the cold treatment has to be repeated.
"We want them to allow us to dispatch the fruit with a cold chain that ranges between 1 degree for 15 days to 3 degrees for 21 days, which would allow exporters to choose the temperature and time but also grant them a wide margin so that they may avoid the problems they currently have and don't have to repeat the cold treatment at the destination" he said.
Cargonexx one of the most successful platforms for lorry transport in Europe
The logistics branch in Germany and Europe is currently showing an increase of new business models and platform concepts. Startup company Cargonexx is one the most successful digital suppliers from Hamburg. In Germany, more than 1,700 freight companies are registered with the digital dispatch platform. With that, the company is also setting the tone within the lorry transport market.
New transport concepts in logistics are increasing pressure on existing companies. But the number of digital platforms on the B2B market will lead to consolidation of competitors in the long term. That does not put off Cargonexx CEO Rolf-Dieter Lafrenz: “The reason for the fast growth of Cargonexx can be found in the fact that we do not want to make dispatch companies redundant, but we want to help these companies become even more successful. That’s why we belong to the group of market players that will also be active in the long term.”
With the help of a self-learning algorithm, the market price for transports is calculated within milliseconds, based on data such as cargo, weather and traffic situation. For that, the startup company uses an innovative technology, which is, so far, unique in this branch. The use of Cargonexx is free, and there are no contractual obligations. The customer can decide for each transport whether Cargonexx is an attractive option. Cargonexx makes a margin of profit between purchasing and selling a transport, which focuses on demand and supply of the route.
Demand for Cargonexx’s platform concept is increasing. “In the past ten days, we managed to double our assignment volume. We have new record figures each week. That provides us with an enormous following wind for further development of our service,” Lafrenz says.
The next objectives of Cargonexx are the expansion of supply to other countries. Austria, Poland and the Netherlands will follow this year. In the long term, the platform should be available for freight transport throughout Europe.
Cargonexx was founded in 2016, and entered the market in December of that year, after a trial phase. The startup company is one of the first companies in Europe to use artificial intelligence to decide spot market prices for lorry transportation.

Colombia to start exporting mandarins to the US again
Colombia will start to export mandarins to the United States again with the first shipment of this product to Puerto Rico, which will be shipped by the Frutales Las Lajas company via the Port of Cartagena.
On July 6, the entire specialized process for handling this type of fruit will begin, which includes inspection in a cold room, an 18-day quarantine for the treatment of the Mediterranean fly, and dispatch to the country of destination with all the certificates that this requires.
If there are no setbacks in the fruit quality inspections, compliance with the regulations, and required documentation, the shipment will be sent to San Juan de Puerto Rico on July 27 through the Sealand shipping line.
The Colombian mandarins are being imported by Frigorífico Nacional, through RL Distributors Corp, both companies from San Juan de Puerto Rico.
“We chose Cartagena because of the cold room conditions that provide better treatment and conditioning for both inspection and quarantine. We also chose it because of their attention and logistics in general. Also because they have transfer rooms that comply with the specialized and careful handling this fruit requires,” stated Juan Carlos Sierra Muños, the commercial director of Frutales Las Lajas.
Giovanni Benedetti, the commercial director of the Puerto de Cartagena Group, stated: "Our port terminal is committed to fruit producers in Colombia so that their processes are much safer, more agile, and successful. In addition to having great connectivity, we are the only port in Colombia that is qualified as CSI (Container Security Initiative), with permanent officials from the United States, CBP, ICE, and DHS. This allows our clients to enter their products into that country, almost as if it were local cargo. Many clients choose us because of our infrastructure, the quality of our operations, experience, and safety. Above all, they choose us because of the differentiation of our service, which in this case allows us to properly handle citrus.”
