APC Norway – Perishable Team
Updated: Jan 10
APC Norway has started dealing with Fish and other perishable products since this September 2022. Jørgen Jakobsen, an industry specialist, which has worked in the past years for several logistics and freight forwarding companies specifically in the cold chain such as DSV, DB Schenker and lately DFDS has joined APC.
In a few weeks the team was set to have experts in Procurement for air and road transport and experts in operations in order to fulfill the requirements of proper documentation and food safety along the transportation.
APC is part of the NX Group (formerly Nippon Express), the fish market fits perfectly to the existing APC Network (predominantly in the Nordics and in Asia) and the NX Group network which is extremely present in Asia. One of the keys to success of APC is the fact that the company is able to adapt to local requirements with its Personal Touch, while having access to a global company that can support with procurement and global reach.
Fish and mainly salmon is the most important product exported from Norway, approximately 250,000 tons are exported per year by air. It is mainly exported to destinations in Asia such as Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and also exported to the USA. The NX Group already handles fish to USA and Asia from their branches in Canada. APC is therefore able to support customers from the door of the fish farms to their final customer door.
The aim is to become one of the main players for this commodity ex Norway. We see the potential that the group can give, will allow APC to reach it’s goal. We are very proud to see that weekly the volumes are growing, making us better positioned with carriers while fulfilling our commitments.
