Food Care Plus x Derudder

Our service tailored to your supply chain

Foodcareplus offers avocado importers and exporters superb service, following the seasons in the different countries with you, so that you can supply tasty avocados to your customers throughout the year. This soft and delicate fruit requires high-quality transport.

Transparency, quality control, and speed are the three main pillars of the integrated solution that we offer for avocado transports. We monitor them from door to door.

Prior to the shipment:
  • Check whether the fruit complies with the agreed specifications. Moreover, we only accept fruit that meets our standards.
  • Check of the time from harvest and the loading of the container.
  • Verification whether the fruit was chilled in time and at the right temperature.
  • Check of the packaging agreements and standards.
  • Optional accredited lab tests (oil and dry matter content).
  • Drawing up transport documents and third-party control documents.
During transport: 
  • Direct delivery with chilled land transport to the port/airport or transshipment hub.
  • Sea or air freight to the destination or transshipment
  • Inspection of the controlled atmosphere and safety systems to prevent CA leakage.
  • Global transport monitoring.
Before and during the delivery:
  • Verification of documents with the food authorities.
  • Phytosanitary inspection or drawing up of phytosanitary transport documents.
  • Drawing up of transit and customs documents.


When transporting avocados, we ensure that the fruit is loaded into the container in accordance with sea or air freight requirements before the fruit leaves on its journey.

Foodcareplus is renowned for its low claim ratio because of its rigorous selection of logistics providers.


The faster the fruit arrives at its final destination, the better. Our transshipment platforms ensure that you can always rely on the fastest and most reliable routing, with air or sea freight. The entire import starts to process a few days before the ship arrives.

This is our way of ensuring that the entire phytosanitary and customs process is finalised no later than one day after the arrival of the sea or air freight and that the fruit can be delivered to the end customer.
