Reefer Specialist

  • FDD Concept

    FDD is the new standard in perishable logistics and NAGA is pleased to support this concept. Operating from fruit ports allows for FAST loading, FAST discharging and FAST clearance of cargoes - reducing transit time from farm to table. DIRECT port-to-port service without transshipment further cuts transit time, helping to increase shelf-life and reduce waste. This DEDICATED approach to perishable cargo carriage, whether by specialized reefer ship or containership, is helping improve returns throughout the supply chain.

  • A box isn’t always just a box

    Each perishable commodity is unique in it’s requirements, sensitivities and protocols. Whether import or export, it’s important to know what is being carried and understand the complexities of the market and the influences of politics, weather and competition. We are active in most perishable trades and trade lanes, providing a unique level of experience and expertise.

    We are a small, dedicated team of specialists who take a hands-on approach to insuring our clients receive superior service levels.
